Fabric Info

Fabric Description

A true western shirt fabric if there ever was one.

This hardy black denim twill is woven with special slub yarns both vertically and horizontally for a perfectly textured look. It has the perfect rugged appeal for a western style with snaps. This beautiful washed black color is achieved with a soda wash, and thanks to the 20/1 x 20/1 twill construction this fabric is sure to last a lifetime, and even look better with age.

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. Learn more about our washed indigo and denim shirts here.

Recommended Styling: Try this one with our Soft Point collar, Soft Front placket, Brown Horn Snaps, a Western yoke, and Western Flap pockets for a traditional western 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.

    Not a deep black, but more of a weathered look. Zero opacity, and doesn’t have the heavy weight or starch of other denim shirts. Really comfy out of the box. Fit was right on. Really like the buttons on it.

    Yes, would recommend this fabric

    This is among the favorite shirts I’ve ever had. Looks great, super comfortable, and it’s more wrinkle-resistant than almost any other fabric I’ve ordered -- I usually do a quick ironing pass on all my button-down shirts, but this one is fine to wear from the dryer.
