Whether you class these as Mod or skinhead designs, the women’s button-down shirts by Britac are still worth talking about.
To be fair, like the designs of Brutus and Mikkel Rude (both now sadly departed from the market), the Britac range has crossed over between the two. Not everyone wants to wear some kind of ‘swinging London’ dress and if want a button-down for women, options aren’t exactly everywhere. So Britac has come to the fore of late for both sexes.
Although right now I am focusing on the women’s range from the Spanish shirtmaker. Stylistically, this isn’t a departure from the men’s selection at first glance.
But the difference is all about the cut, which is obviously created for the female shape. Or the ‘perfect girl fit’ as Britac says, with shaping and darting at the bust.
In terms of the detailing, you are looking at the back button on the collar, a short sleeve with tab and two buttons on the ‘V’, as well as the raised button-down collar. The one detail that might split the audience is the presence of a logo on the chest pocket. Not everyone likes a logo, so it is worth mentioning.
Various designs available and if you want one, you are looking at €55 without a handkerchief and €60 with one.
You can see all the designs on the Britac website.
