Hawes and Curtis review – sizes available

Four different cuts are available from Hawes and Curtis

  • Classic Fit shirts are Hawes and Curtis’ widest cut around the chest and waist.
  • Relaxed Slim Fit falls between the Classic Fit and the Fitted Slim Fit.
  • Fitted Slim Fit shirts are the narrower than Tailored around the chest and waist.
  • Extra Slim Fit are the narrowest in the range.  These were launched in 2013 and are part of the general trend in the industry towards slimmer, fitting shirts.


In Spring 2018 Hawes and Curtis updated their shirt sizing and range and I’ve updated this page to take account of that.

When comparing the shirt measurements and your body measurements remember:

  • For the chest the shirt circumference should be six inches larger than the body measurement for a comfortable fit. Four inches for a tighter fit.
  • For the waist the shirt circumference should be four inches larger than the body measurement for a comfortable fit. Three inches for a tighter fit.

Hawes and Curtis review – cuff and collar manufacturing

All shirt manufacturers I know of insert an interlining into the cuffs and collars of their shirts to make them more robust.  Hawes and Curtis, like many others, use semi-fused interlinings, which means that their collars and cuffs have an interlining which is fused with the material of the shirt.

As part of the Hawes and Curtis review I took one of their shirts apart. The image shows the fused interlining, (1). The interlining is separate from the material on the inside of the cuff (2) and fused to the outside (3) of the shirt cuff. This is called semi-fused as the interlining is only fused to the outside. If the interlining was fused to the outside and inside it would be called fully fused.

Hawes and Curtis review - cuff manufactureThe image below shows the collar of the same Hawes and Curtis shirt. The same construction technique is used: the interlining (1) is separated from and not fused with the back (2), but is fused to the front (3) of the collar.
