Men's Handmade Indian Woven Cotton Lined Long Sleeve Banded Round Collar Winter Warmth Dress Shirt - Rust Orange Ivory Floral - Ailill I956
Handsome woven cotton lined men's shirt in a banded collared style! Fully lined for winter warmth!
This exclusive material is called Chettinadu, made in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu where we traveled to while living in India. It is a sturdy weave, so I added a soft broadcloth cotton lining for extra comfort, warmth, and enhanced durability. This type of cotton softens with washing and wear.
The Ailill (pronounced all-yill) shirt is a stunning rust color with Ivory floral accents. Ailill is an Irish name and he was the young husband of Queen Maebh, chosen by her because he was “a man without meaness, fear or jealosy, a match for my own greatness.” It's not just a shirt, but a shirt hand crafted with meaning and creativity.
The backs of the arms have different prints (size Large only as shown in photos), creating a visual continuity with the bottom border and adding to the unique nature of this shirt. The XL size shirt has matching arms. The size Large has a slight snag on the left sleeve and is therefore discounted. This type of imperfection is common in Indian fabric, however I try to work around such areas.
Our Mumtaz banded shirts have a stiffened collar and placket with a functional left-side chest pocket. A spare button is included inside above the waistline. Two inch slits on the sides allow for movement at the hips. Designed to be worn with the collar open, this shirt is a fantastic choice for work, weddings, and photos.
Only at Mumtaz Creations can you find eastern materials blended with western style. This casual fit shirt can be found in other colors in our Men's Cotton Shirts section.
Classy style and unique prints that you can't find anywhere else!

A note about Indian Chettinadu Material - all cottons have been prewashed/preshrunk before sewing. Some cottons, particularly hand-printed ones, will bleed slightly in the first couple washes. This material has a slight odor when wet, but wears off after a few washes.
Indian fabric also may have what others would call "imperfections". Tiny white specks where the ink missed, miniscule snags in this delicate material, chalk marks from the manufacturer, etc. These are not blemishes, but an inherent part of this original, ethnic material. I try to note "marks" when noticeable, and do not sell any significantly damaged items.
Care instructions: Machine wash cold. Hang dry, or tumble low heat.
Custom orders welcomed, as I have plenty of extra material. However, I usually can not duplicate the same color/print since this type of material is not sold in multiples.
Thanks for stopping by and appreciating my Indian inspired men's shirts!!
