Budd’s exclusive Edwardian blue stripe shirt was originally designed in the 1920s. In those days it was made in silk. You can still see the original maquette hanging in the shop today.

The stripe was equal width blue and white and edged with a fine black line. It eventually became a tradition to revise the stripe every 10 years for a special edition of the shirt. In 2010 it was decided that the shirt was so popular that it should become part of the regular stock. Today the shirt  is made in cotton rather than silk and comes in 6 colours, however, the contemporary version traces its pedigree right back to the original Budd Stripe of the 1920s.
