The Full Story+

Our Dalby Shirt offers the performance of a technical fleece – with the smart, everyday good looks of a classic flannel shirt.

Made from a technical blend of polyester and elastane, our Dalby Shirt is cosy, hard-wearing and extremely quick drying. It’s also luxuriously comfortable to wear.

The addition of stretchy elastane to the blend adds flexibility and freedom of movement and helps the shirt to retain its shape and eliminates any unsightly creasing.

The Dalby Shirt is simplicity itself to care for: just rinse it in a hotel basin or throw it in the washing machine. Hang it up and it’ll dry overnight, ready to go again the next morning – with absolutely no ironing required.
This classic button shirt features two chest pockets and adjustable cuffs with button fastenings. Perfect for a smart-casual look.

Fabric: 95% polyester 5% elastane with Thermocore™ technology

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.

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.

Thermocore™

Taking its inspiration from the composition of reindeer fur, our Thermocore™ fabric is made from polyester filaments – with a hollow core. And it’s this hollow core that’s the secret to Thermocore’s incredible insulating properties. Dry air has a tiny thermal conductivity – 24 times less than water – and our Thermocore™ fabric simply traps more of it than an ordinary, solid fibre. And if it’s good enough for reindeer…

Looks good, but

★★★☆☆

This is a good looking shirt in the navy colour, quite smart.

I bought a size larger than normal, which allows me to wear a thin jumper underneath.

Good thing I did, as I would not call this shirt Autumn weight. In the Channel Islands maybe, not if you're in Yorkshire! It is disappointingly thin.

My other gripe is the tiny, fiddly buttons. I managed to undo three, then gave up. Fortunately, I could then slip the shirt on over my head. I won't attempt to undo more buttons!

Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that you feel the fabric is thin. We are delighted to advise this style is made from a really strong and durable fabric which is lovely and lightweight at only 255 grams. Please be assured, our Dalby Shirt features a brushed back hollow core fabric making it nice and warm for the colder months so you should find that although the fabric is lightweight, it has the ability to provide you with enough warmth. Sorry you had a little trouble with the buttons, we will pass your feedback onto our Design team who are currently working on our Spring/Summer 2023 range.

Disappointing

★☆☆☆☆

I’m currently wearing the Homestead shirt size 14, which fits adequately. I ordered a 14 and 16 in the Dolby and was horrified at how tight they fitted. The 14 definitely too tight, the 16 tight across the back. This is not the first time I’ve been disappointed with Rohan sizing recently. It’s been my ‘go to’ shop for casual wear for many years, but I’ve now started looking at other manufacturers.

Thank you for your review. Lovely to hear you have been pleased with your Homestead Shirt. Sorry to hear the size 14 and 16 were unsuitable for you. Customer Service are more than happy to provide you with specific measurements or talk you through different styles and how they fit so please do get in touch with them on 0800 840 1411 if you would like further assistance. Our Design team are really keen to receive all customer feedback and so your comments have been passed to them for their reference. Just so you know, they do work several seasons in advance and so it can take time to see amendments made in the range.

My go-to cool weather shirt

★★★★★

I loved my navy Dalby shirt so much that I bought a second one, in the sale, exactly the same. I tend to wear it over a tee shirt, loose or buttoned, and it works well both out shopping and on a walk. The best bit is that I can wash it, hang it on the line and bring it in dry, (it dries quickly) and it doesn’t need ironing 👍👍

What I’d really like is another darker colour choice as the 2 pale ones make me look washed out. I’d happily buy a third.

Women's Dalby shirt

★★★★☆

I get hot and cold very quickly so often like to wear an open shirt over a top to add/remove quickly. This shirt, with minimal patterning - plainer the better - is so cosy when you put it on, and has enough stretch so when the sleeves are turned back a little they don't flop back again. Love wearing it, and as the sale items are still available, about to buy in the other colour as well! I'm short so the length is adequate - just!

This is a lovely shirt

★★★★☆

Initially I bought the pastel shirt but loved it so much I bought the navy - both in the sale. The fabric feels soft - a bit like brushed cotton. It's a cosy shirt. It's smart enough to wear to work but practical enough for daily walks. Washes well. Only drawback is it could do with being a tad longer to keep it tucked in when reaching up, hence the 4 rather than 5 stars. Otherwise, I'm really pleased with them.

Nice shirt!

★★★★★

This is a very nice shirt all-purpose & it was great that it was offered in dark navy check (not all of us can wear or want pastels). Wonderful to have another warmer shirt that is also moisture-wicking & quick-drying. Perfect for hiking, but it is also nice-looking & will be excellent for traveling -- when that is possible again -- & for many other occasions.
