Nehru Shirts

This summer, we’ve taken style inspiration from our South Asian travels and introduced the ‘Nehru’ linen shirt to the Beaufort & Blake collection. Ever wondered the origin of ‘Nehru’?

The Nehru jacket was a tailored coat with a mandarin collar, modelled on the ‘achkan’ or ‘sherwani’ – clothing worn by Jawaharla Nehru, a former Prime Minister of India.
