The Pike Brothers 1923 Buccanoy Shirt is based on a 1920s European Dress Shirt. Just like the original the Buccanoy Shirt has an additional button for attaching the detachable collar. It is made of a lightweight finely woven fabric which makes it an ideal summer shirt when you want to show that you are not going for the standard shirt, but that you know how to sport something slightly different yet very stylish.
This shirt has a special button to accommodate a seperate white collar. A tradition very common in formal menswear up to the 1940s when this collar was replaced by the button down version. A separate collar was easier to wash and starch.
- 100% cotton

Pike Brothers was founded in 1930 by brother George and Joseph Pike. Their small yet high-quality clothing store was located in the famous Portobello Road, Notting Hill, in the heart of London. Custom clothing for men was their specialty. During the Second World War they produced uniforms for American military forces. This was the time when American soldiers came over to England. Pike Brothers managed to combine the best materials with European craftsmanship and create the unmistakable clothing you see today. They simply struck a brilliant balance between American workwear and European expertise. A legacy that defines Pick Brothers to this very day.
Pike Brothers distinguishes itself by respecting and celebrating the original functionality of its clothing instead of simply aiming for superficial succes. All clothing is made in Europe and produced the old-fashioned way. Pure craftsmanship and the best materials add up to this stylish and timeless clothing. Pike Brothers is that perfect combination of style and functionality.
