Medical Shirt In Indigo – Nigel Cabourn

Medical Shirt In Indigo


This style is inspired by a vintage work shirt, worn by a Medic on the Everest Expedition in the 1950s, and is one of our classic shirts.

The medical shirt has unique reinforcement covers round the Yoke to the Arm Holes. Pen pockets and ventilation holes on its back and underarm provide extreme comfort. The small number count of yarn and three needles stitching and lapping seam, are all signs of Japanese craftsmanship.

The warp is yarn-dyed in indigo and is then bleached, so you can enjoy the Colour fading like denim as you keep wearing it and washing it. The embroidered holes (for ventilation) are done with very old special machines, which is why the edges of the holes are looped beautifully. Every feature on this Medical Shirt is carefully considered and has a function.
