«This is the perfect casual shirt to kickstart spring –  especially if you´re not feeling quite ready for those bright pastel colours», shirt designer Hege Næss Gundersen says.

Durable Bedford-quality

But to answer the question you might already have asked yourself: What extactly is a bedford shirt?

«It means that the shirt is made with the fabric quality of Bedford cord –  named after the town Bedford in England. Thespecial weft technique gives the fabric stripes or furrows like corduroy, only they are much more discreet» the designer explains.

«Because the shirt doesn’t look like it’s made of corduroy?»

«No, it feels like a ´regular´, yet firm, cotton shirt. What’s so great about the bedford weft, is that it gives the shirt a richer, and more interesting texture – not to mention a more durable fabric.

Made for jeans

Even though the shirt is specially suitable for more casual occasions, that doesn’t mean you won´t look well dressed when wearing it:
