How to Measure

Our shirt labels indicate fit, collar size and sleeve length. Below are some tips on how to measure yourself so that you can purchase your shirts with confidence.

If you have any queries about measuring please feel free to email us at info@gantonshop.com.au or call us on (02) 9519 4000.

Neck/Collar

Take one of your best fitting shirts. Lay the collar flat and measure the inside of the collar from the centre of the button to the centre of the buttonhole. Alternatively you can ask someone to measure around your neck, allowing enough room for two fingers to be inserted comfortably between the tape measure and the neck. This should allow for a comfortable fit. This measurement should be your Collar size.

Sleeve

Take one of your best fitting shirts and lay it out flat with the back facing up. Locate the centre of the base of the collar. From this point measure across the top of the shoulder and then measure along the sleeve to the end of the cuff. If the measurement falls between two sizes, choose the longer size.

Fabric Types

Gold Label

A luxury two ply pinpoint oxford, constructed using superfine twisted cotton polyester yarn. Made exclusively for Ganton in Spain, Gold Label is wrinkle resistant, hard wearing and requires minimal ironing. 

 

100's 2 Ply

A cotton poplin fabric, woven with superfine twisted yarns which create a smooth, durable and silky fabric. Our permanent "easy iron" finish greatly reduces the wrinkling characteristics of the fabric while increasing its breathable quality and comfort to the wearer. 

 

Swiss Cotton "Wash and Wear"

This superfine pure cotton compact yarn is sourced from Switzerland, prized for its softness. A durable fabric with a ‘Wash & Wear’ finishing for easy everyday wear, however the fabric presents best when ironed after washing.

 

Cotton / Stretch

A flexible performance fabric for ease of movement and comfort. Our Cotton / Stretch shirts are 75% cotton 20% nylon and 5% elastin. Must be ironed with a low to medium heat setting to avoid damage to the fabric. 

 

Cotton / Polyester

With a 55%-65% cotton to 35-45% polyester ratio, this fabric has been formulated to have the best of both worlds: the breathe and comfort of cotton and the easy care properties of high quality polyester. 

 

100% Pure Cotton

For a natural feel and maximum breathable quality, our 100% Pure Cotton Shirts are made from ethically sourced Cotton and woven in some of the best mills from around the world. 

 

Easy Iron

Many of our Pure Cotton fabrics also have a permanent Easy Iron Finish applied with a heat process to the fabric. A natural fabric that smooths easily with the iron. 

 

Fabric Textures

A Poplin Weave is a simple one over-one under weave. This often makes the fabric lightweight and smooth. The flat surface is excellent to showcase strong colours in plains, prints, stripes or checks.

Ganton Poplin Fabric
 

A Herringbone Weave is a pattern of short, diagonal parallel lines where the direction of the slant alternates column by column - giving the fabric a zig-zag effect. The size of the herringbone can vary from as small as 2mm to as large as 20mm. A Herringbone is a type of Twill Weave.

 

Twill

A Twill Weave is characterised by a texture that forms a distinct diagonal line that moves to the left or right across the surface of the fabric. Twills technically have a front and back side and can usually show a different colour or prominence on either side of the fabric.

Ganton Twill Fabric
 

A Sateen is a fabric made using a Satin Weave structure but made with cotton yarns instead of silk. This allows the fabric to take on a lustre or shine that can enhance plains, or highlight stripes and checks. The Sateen can be slightly raised and textured, but the weave feels softer and smoother on the skin than other types.

Ganton Sateen Fabric
 

Originating in 19th century Great Britain, the Oxford is characterised by a subtle one-by-one basket-weave texture, which makes the fabric strong and durable. There are many variations of Oxford, but generally the fabric has intense white overtones on a coloured background. The Pinpoint Oxford is very textures offer superior easy care with their ability to hide wrinkles in their texture. The Oxford similar, but has a finer basket-weave texture. The Royal Oxford has a two-by-two heavier texture. Oxford weave has a dot like effect.
