This piece of fabric, fixed or removable, was long used to cover the torsos of cowboys, cavalry officers, hussars and men of the world. Today the plastron shirt is no longer a sign of physical and social invulnerability, but continues – when worn with a tuxedo or tail-coat – to be an essential element in men’s wardrobe for the most formal of soirees.
Cultivated in the Nile valley since the 12th century BC, this brilliant, solid and soft fabric has fibres twice the length of other cotton varieties. Highly absorbent it allows for the production of jackets and shirts whose dye lasts for longer than with other categories of cotton.
