The Full Story+

Our trim-fitting Newtown Shirt has been specifically designed to be as versatile as possible.

It's packed with clever technology such as a Dynamic Moisture Control™ fabric finish and Silvadur™ anti-bacterial treatment. In English, this means it wicks efficiently and you'll still be nice to be near even if the office air-conditioning has thrown its hand in.

The subtle gingham pattern is smart enough to wear with a tie if the office dress code demands it, but pulls off the neat trick of looking nice and casual should you pop into a bar or a restaurant on the way home.

We've included some nice detailing such as the pleated rear yoke to provide plenty of freedom plus a handy buttoned chest pocket.

Speaking of which, it dries in three hours - how handy is that for business travel?

Like we said, it's really versatile and great for work or travel.

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 hours

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

ANTI ODOUR SILVER

Garments treated with our Anti Odour Silver technology benefit from the natural antimicrobial properties of silver. Tiny traces of silver, distributed evenly throughout the garment, inhibit the growth of bacteria reducing mould and odour. This treatment is permanent – it will never wash or wear out.

SUN PROTECTION UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognized international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

DYNAMIC MOISTURE CONTROL™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

1 Secure Pocket

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

SIZING!!

★☆☆☆☆

I’ve got at least 15 Rohan shirts, polos and t shirts. Every single one of those is Large. I would say a Large in this shirt is at least one size, possibly two smaller than every other shirt I own. Something pretty badly wrong with the buying here.

Hi Graham, thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on our Newtown Shirt. I shall pass your feedback on to the relevant department in regards to sizing.

Newtown Shirt L/S SS19, Twilight Blue Gingham, Medium

★☆☆☆☆

This size M is a much smaller fit than a Rohan size M shirt that I bought in Canterbury some time past. As Rohan did not warn of the size change on their website I am very disappointed as I do not at all like this tighter fit. The more so as I live in France and cannot benefit from the return policy. I expected a better mail order service from a reputable firm such as Rohan.

Hi Marc, sorry to hear that you have been left feeling disappointed with the fit of our Newtown Shirt. I shall pass your feedback onto the relevant department.

Great to wear

★★★★★

Have several Newtown shirts, and my latest purchase is just like the others. It is a very good fit on me, light, comfortable, and easy to wash, so excellent for travelling. Like the others, I have no doubt it will be a long lasting favourite summer shirt.

Sizing problem

★☆☆☆☆

You need to be aware that this is a much slimmer fit approx 4 inches at the waist smaller than normal medium size. I have been buying Rohan shirts for over 20 years and medium has always fitted perfectly as general and outdoor wear and now they have subtlety introduced this slimmer fit which so drastically smaller this shirt in no way fulfills what Rohan wear states it delivers. They should have made the change of size much clearer. Their staff do not seem to be aware. I have a Newtown shirt from a couple of years ago in the traditional size which is fine. So disappointing to be let down having been a loyal customer for many years

Hi David, thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our Newtown Shirts. I am sorry about to hear that our sizing guide has caused confusion. I will be sure to pass your feedback onto the relevant department and ensure that all of our team are aware of the sizing change. If you wish to discuss this further then please feel free to contact customer services on 0800 840 1411.
