John Crocket's shirt world holds the finest fabrics in classic colours as well as in a striking check or stripes. So we distinguish between two models and three collar shapes. In addition, we have put together helpful tips on the fitting and care for you.
The bulk of our Shirts is woven in the whole twisting process. With this fabric, you benefit from its durability and shape stability, as well as clear and brilliant colors, as well as the pleasant wearing comfort.
A full-ply thread consists of two particularly strongly twisted cotton fibres. These high-quality plies are woven in bulk and chain. The length of the threads makes it lighter and silkier and the high rotation and double spinning of the yarn also ensures stability. Our fabric has the quality marking 100/2 x 100/2, which means a thread of 100's strength is sewn twice in shot and chain. Unlike normal 115g-130g/qm varieties, our fabric has a lower weight with only 105g-110g/qm.
The strength 40/2 x 40/2 to 180/2 x 180/2 can be used for spinning. We have consciously chosen the quality 100/2 x 100/2, as it best meets our requirements for our shirts. That is why, among other things, we also dispense with semi-thread, where only one thread or chain is twisted, as well as a simple twisted 100% cotton fabric.
It is durable, breathable and particularly versatile, that is Popeline. This fabric is one of the most common shirts and can also be found in many in our shirt assortment. The special, so-called cloth binding with denser chain thread and wider firing thread allows easy washing and ironing of the shirts.
The weave Twill is the English name for twill connection and famously for her fine, diagonally running structure. For the weave production exclusively high-quality cotton fibres are used as well as for our other shirts and are weaved to robust and tough materials. Twill check lends slightly gleaming optics to plain shirts. Our brightly patterned shirts against it distinguish themselves by soft flannel-like optics.
We wish the Oxford material strong in the clutch, firmly in the fabric and rustic in the structure. These optics cannot be produced in the full linen thread procedure, because this makes as on top described the material silk-like. Therefore, no full ply thread is used with our Oxford materials exceptionally, but the special connection of 50/1 and 30 / of 2-professional thread. Thus originates the typical Oxford structure which works a little heavier, körniger and more sportily. A web kind with long tradition.
Our Shirts have a longer cut so that they cannot slip out of their pants while wearing. To improve the seat, the shoulder part is split yoke and offers a good fit.
In our models we distinguish between Classic- and the SlimlinesModels. While the Classic shirts are classic straight cut, the fit of our slimline shirts is slightly tailored. Which line is the right one for you, therefore, is not only determined by your figure, but is also a matter of personal preference.
However, the length of the sleeves can be determined more precisely. If you see an L behind the collar at John Crocket, this is a long size. Whether this is suitable for you depends on a rule of thumb: from a body size of 185cm you should choose a longer arm.
Of course there are always discrepancies, but it is always true that the shirt cuffs should be well visible under the jacket. The shirt cuff should not cover two-thirds of the middle hand with the arm just hanging down. The sleeves should reach up to the wrist.

This collar cut gives the right seat to the tie knot, right in the middle of the triangle formed by the collar ends. Even if the top button is left open on informal occasions. Because the elastic (and of course removable) collars make the collar casual. They ensure the ideal curvature and also prevents that the tip of the collar slipps even when the tie is loose. If you are looking for an optimal shirt for silk coats and business suits, congratulations, you have just found it.
Since the Kent collar is the classic, we offer it right in our two lines, Classic and Slimlines. Our Classic Kent is equipped with an elegant double cuff and chest pocket, while the Slimline model dispenses with both. This makes it ideal to wear on casual occasions as well.
English sports style for German easy wear. Because the Button Down Collar is a typical British example of practical clothing. It was invented for polo players. In the hunt for the ball, the collar ends should not flatter in the face, so the collar tips were buttoned.
The supple nature and sportiness of the collar with the buttoned collar ends makes this shirt a real all-rounder. Whether in relaxed days in the office or in leisure time. It gives you the feeling of being perfectly dressed at any time, even without a tie and with a buttoned collar. With this elegant style, the simple cuff harmonizes with the two buttons. A chest pocket emphasizes the practical side of the button down shirt.
Perfect elegance was the idea of a men's tailor, who grabbed the scissors and, with a cut one, created the most modern collar of today: the Cut-Away.
The "cut away" or, in other words, the spread-out collar tips, makes the cut-away is more fashionable than a classic shirt collar, casual and at the same time style-conscious.
The look of the Cut-Away underlines the dynamic appearance and shows casual elegance. Between the horizontally cut collar tips, the tie knot comes into effect very nicely. In line with the suit, the cut-away has no chest pocket, but it is equipped with a double cuff and creates space for elegant cuff links.
Processed according to London tradition
John Crocket uses only Two-fold-cloth thread for the shirts, except for the Oxford fabrics. In general, quality at John Crocket is top of the list. Pearl buttons are a matter of course and every step of the processing is well thought of, which can be seen below all at the following points.
The collar is made of two parts, that is, it is not glued. A glued collar is simpler and less expensive to manufacture, but a rigid visual impression is created, which makes the collar appear like cardboard. In the case of a collar of two parts, on the other hand, a skillful cut guide means that a natural fitis achieved. In order to ensure a perfect fit, our Kent and Cut-Away-Collar have removable collar sticks.
Removable collar sticks
The seam is double-needle stitched from the outside and cleanly folded inside. This is more complicated than the more widespread inside seam, in which the fabric is simply pulled inward. This offers little hold, requires less precision and requires a comparatively small number of stitches. The double needed stitching, on the other hand, is only controlled by the best tailors.
Cap stitching and the blue triangle specific to John Crocket
double cuff, different arm lengths
The depicted cuff is the fashion-conscious double cuff, which is also referred to as a cover cuff. This is a double fabric layer, which is folded over to the wrist and is held fast by elegant cuff links or fabric cufflinks. Evening dress such as the tuxedo is worn exclusively with a cover. We offer our button-down and the Slimline Kent shirt with the simple sports cuff, which is closed by two buttons. It is the most popular type of cuff and is ideal for leisure activities.
You can wash our shirts at 40 ° degrees. Please note that the shirts reduce size after washing. That's why our shirts in the collar have a cm more so that even after 4-5 times washing it is not too small and still sits comfortably.
