Fabric Info

Fabric Description

The perfect black denim shirt.

This super soft and versatile 60s 2-ply denim works year-round, drapes beautifully, and looks fantastic as a Western shirt, overshirt, or dressed up under a sport coat. We give this fabric a gentle enzyme wash that removes less dye, resulting in a saturated black with subtle fading and puckering along the placket and seams.

From sourcing the perfect denim from a 185-year-old mill in Italy to testing washes with our factory for months on end, we labor over every detail of our washed indigo shirts. Each of them starts out as a plain or textured weave fabric that’s been dyed heavily with indigo. After being cut and sewn, the shirts are then garment washed using either a light enzyme, soda, or bleaching process. It's this process that gives each shirt its beautiful color and unique fading around the seams. While garment washed indigo and denim shirts are a popular product in the ready-to-wear market, they haven't previously been available in a custom fit or design due to the bulk production required for the washing process. We've worked closely with our suppliers to bring you the first truly custom garment washed indigo and denim shirts on the market. Premium, carefully crafted shirts, made to your exact specifications.

Recommended Styling: Try this one with our Soft Franklin Spread collar, Soft Front placket, Utility pockets, and Grey Horn buttons for a utilitarian casual look. Note that, due to the special nature of the garment washing process, this fabric can only be made using soft, unfused collars, cuffs, and fronts/plackets.

Since our limited-run garment washed indigo and denim fabrics are made in small batches with a special process, we guarantee delivery by January 20th, 2021. Fabric swatches are not available.

    Great fabric. Warmer than flannel. Yet light enough for warm weather. A look that not many have anymore.
