Dalvey is a company that was originally founded in Scotland in 1897 as an instrument manufacturer, specializing in bagpipes. Owned and operated by Sir Patrick Grant of Dalvey, the business grew from an engineering masterpiece to the luxury design export business that it is today. Dalvey provides versatile, modern, and classic luxury clothing and accessories.
At www.dalvey.com, they pride themselves in providing “designs for discerning men”. Their luxury dress shirts are made from the finest fabrics and have details that set them apart from the rest. For example, the White Herringbone with Stripe is constructed with a rich herringbone weave that is created by alternating the fabric direction to create a tonal stripe. It fits me perfectly and hasn’t lost any conformity with repeated cleanings. It has a classic pointed collar, button cuffs, and shirt-tail hem. This particular shirt is priced at $113 and comes in a variety of neck sizes, slim fit, double cuffs and button cuffs. Dalvey’s attention to details takes the plain white dress shirt to the next level.
If you are looking for a more colorful dress shirt, then you may want to take a look at the Blue Herringbone Shirt for $104. It is tailored slimmer than a regular fit, but not as form-fitting as a traditional slim fit. Up close, you can see the fantastic texture of the dobby weave that forms a herringbone pattern. Made of luxurious Giza and Pima cotton, it is detailed with single needle stitching for more elegant seams and a classic style Dalvey collar with removable bones. Surprisingly enough, it is machine washable in cold, but make sure to hang it to dry like I almost forgot to!
Also, if you need “the complete look”, Dalvey has a selection of silk ties, cuff links, jackets, blazers, trousers, and accessories to fit the bill.
Dalvey, the fairly new Scottish luxury brand, has impressed me before with their merchandise. I recently got my hands on another slim-fit shirt of theirs – let’s see how this pink collared faired.
This fun and simple pink checkered shirt, is by far one of the best shirts I’ve worn this year – and the reason isn’t because someone sent it to me. First, the seams are clearly single-needled and therefore are simple and inconspicuous, which is essential for a sophisticated collared in my opinion. Second, unlike so many other shirts that bare the description, this Dalvey is truly slim fit and form fitting. This is the second shirt I’ve reviewed from them and both times the shirt fit perfectly.
