I want to do a review on shirts, which is unusual, because I don't find the fascination in clothes. I must say though, these shirts are the most practical I have ever worn. They are also confortable, and I do wish I had more of them.

I have to wear some sort of corporate clothing for work, nobody actually says exactly what form this should take, and my employer certainly does not issue me with it. I do feel that it need to look smart, and still practical, so the idea of a shirt which is basically a uniform shirt is proven to do both. The shirt is made by the famous Company Churchill, and the material is Poly/Cotton, that is 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton. This is a good mix, and if the shirt goes from the washing machine to the clothes line, then straight onto a coathanger, it is pretty free from creases. I often give my shirts a quick iron, but can usually get away with it.

The fit is very generous, and the labels let you know all the instructions, washing, ironing, mix, maker etc. The labels also have one more thing in their favour, they do not irritate the back of your neck. I have found even designer makes very often do this. The main label is a silvery white, with the name Churchill actually embroidered on it! The collar can be worn open, just the way I like it, I hate ties. The two breast pockets are big enough to hold all the paperwork I seem to collect, and are secured with buttons of course. These pockets also have a slot for a pen or two, this is a must for me.

There are loops for eppaulettes but these are of no use to me. The tail of the shirt is long enough to stay tucked in. All my shirts for work are white, not the most practical colour, but they do seem to stay clean somehow.

These shirts were actually given to me by a friend who worked in security, I just wish he could get me some more, because one day I am going to run out.
