The ultimate balance of comfort and style.
We worked with one of our favorite Japanese mills to develop this innovative performance knit fabric. Woven from an incredibly stretchy 55% cotton/45% polyester performance blend, this 30s single-ply piqué is our most comfortable casual fabric yet. Its open weave allows for breathability and airflow, and it resists wrinkles and wicks moisture away from the body so you’ll stay cool and look (and feel) as fresh as the moment you put it on. This fine knit is super versatile when it comes to styling, too—go with a full dress shirt, or try a popover front for a sartorial take on the polo. Our saturated black version has beautifully subtle texture and is sure to be a mainstay of your weekend wardrobe.
Recommended Styling: Soft details are the way to go. Our Colorado Button Down collar and a Soft Front placket will say “classic casual”, while our Soft Franklin Spread and no placket offers a clean, minimal look.
