Engineered by the prestigious Twenty Committee, the double cross system was the greatest intelligence coup of the Second World War. Risky reconnaissance missions were performed behind enemy lines and agents sent overseas by Britain’s Special Operations Executive were equipped with specially designed IDs and civilian clothing appropriate to where they were being sent.
This season, the Realm & Empire classic collection combines casual functionality with design and style influences from all over the World.
The Cuban Collar is one of this season's must-own pieces. Defined by a pointed, two-tiered collar, this shirt is typically short-sleeved and recalls that classic, vintage 50s Americana look.
Cut in a more relaxed fit and crafted from a jacquard weave with a scoop hemline, this new R/E offering also features a handy rouleau loop on collar; perfect for hanging up when your pool-side.
Available in Grey Jacquard and Blue Jacquard.
