Smyth and Gibson design pure Irish linen shirts for men and women

Wendy Smyth and Richard Gibson originally designed high quality, hand finished Irish linen shirts for men.

However, they diversified into ladies’ wear when it became clear that an increasing number of women were buying men’s shirts for their own wardrobes.

Part of the collection includes vibrant colours such as lime, cobalt, claret and yellow, which reflects Irish linen’s ability to take dyes easily. Other materials they use are two fold cotton poplin and silk.

Smyth and Gibson have retail stores in Belfast and Dublin, and also have a number of key outlets in the UK and throughout the world.
