Our classic NIGHT-SHIRT was designed¹ for lazy elegance: a knee-length shirt with standing collar and no buttons, embellished with a simple piping. It can be worn to sleep, and ladies can even wear it as a Summer day-dress!

¹ by Eugène Le Moult for his house on the Maroni river (in the Amazon basin, the natural border to Dutch Guiana), great-grand-dad had adapted an office shirt to our original NIGHT-SHIRT



TAGS:long weekend out of Paris in the country house

MATERIAL

100%ᴾᵁᴿᴱ  Southern-Indian COTTON (as in the authentic British home-wear before 1947)
• from fields SUSTAINABLY growing cotton since at least 35AD (according to Roman Empire trade records)
• woven as in the original HERRINGBONE-LIGHT weave to P.Le Moult designs in nearby villages by English-speaking unionized craftspeople, descendants of the original weavers (in a state that has been alternating between soft-Left and hard-Left coalitions since 1957...)

MANUFACTURE

sewn up the coast in cosmopolitan Bombay in the English-speaking unionised workshop of close friends that we've been producing with since the early 1970s, conveniently easy-to-inspect on the main highway, a 20 minutes drive North of the international airport

STYLE

for long weekends, Eugène Le Moult would drive to his château in the Auvergne, France’s volcanic region ( rather than to the country house mid-way to the Champagne ). Here he’d be sequestered with his notable guests puffing on cigars and quaffing cognac
