Fabric Info

Fabric Description

Subtle detail sets this shirt apart.

This remarkably soft 80s 2-ply denim is a great year-round fabric that has a beautiful drape, and we added special contrast stitching to make it stand out just a little bit more. It’s ideal for those who like a denim shirt that can work under a sport coat, and also makes for a unique yet understated look on its own. The soft light blue color results from the reaction of the indigo dye with a heavy bleach wash.

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 Ivy Button Down collar, Soft Front placket, Rounded pocket, and Long One Button cuff for a traditional look that also created plenty of opportunity to show off the contrast stitching. 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.

    Great denim color that gets better with age and repeated washing. The contrast thread is a nice touch. This fabric didn’t shrink vertically (shirt length) as much as others, so keep that in mind.
