The Wye overshirt is a luxuriously soft layering piece for all seasons. Paired back in design, casual in style and cut from the finest Italian wool flannel, this exceptional wool overshirt is a homage to the texture and quality of the cloth from which it is made.
Supplied to us by a long established, family owned mill north of Turin, we fell in love with the fabric long before we knew what to do with it. The end result is a happy coincidence of understated style and function; available in two versatile colours with aged brass button fasteners and twin breast pockets.

More commonly found in Savile Row suiting, pure wool flannel is a wonderfully soft and yet robust natural cloth. Contrary to what its luxurious feel might suggest however, the Wye overshirt can be washed at home without too much trouble.
As with all wool fabrics, we recommend spot washing or dabbing with a damp cloth in the event of a minor mishap. When necessary, the Wye overshirt can be hand or machine washed in cold water on a delicate cycle.
Avoid abrasive detergents and always hang up to dry naturally. Steam iron on a medium to low heat if required.
