Our T-shirts and Pullovers are made from 100% Tanguis cotton, an extra-long staple variety grown in Peru and prized for its natural bright-white color and its superior softness, strength, and durability.
Our cotton is combed and ring-spun into a 20/1 weight yarn. This process significantly improves the softness of the yarn as they are combed to remove any impurities or imperfect strands.
We are obsessed with fit! Our garments are fully engineered and built with cut-and-sew side seam construction. We nitpick every key measurement to conform to the body, including: shoulder point, shoulder drop, chest, mid-section, hem, front length, back length, collar opening, front / back collar drop, armhole, and sleeve length.
This is in contrast to the less expensive, “tubular construction”…the one-size-fits-most, cookie-cutter approach used in mass-production operations.
To finish, we pigment dye for color and garment wash in sea-salt solution to create the vintage, worn-in look and feel. The resulting fabric is a hefty, 8 oz./mt.
