Bleecker Beige Melange Fabric

Fabric Info

Fabric Description

A lightweight, casual solid made with a special yarn that gives it a beautiful, irregular color. The simple plain weave means this wears smooth and can be ironed up for a crisp look. It's woven with a 60s single ply construction in a weight that works in all four seasons. We love how this works with a pair of faded jeans, and it's a great layering piece that adds nice visual texture without being overwhelming. Definitely opt for a soft collar, cuff, and placket on this one.

    Really pretty - the texture is interesting but understated. Goes with lots of things, but it’s especially good under a sportcoat.

    As described; lightweight somewhat transparent with a chambray-like slubby texture. I ordered mine with the soft president spread collar, which I regret; this site promotes that style for casual shirts, but it’s really not a flattering collar when not buttoned up with a tie, and in all cases there are better options. For a casual shirt, the soft ivy or even the hidden button down I think works better.
