Fabric Info

Fabric Description

The perfect denim fabric. Period. Washed to a gorgeous shade of indigo blue that’s neither dull, nor overly vibrant. Different from our washed indigo and denim shirts, this fabric is washed prior to being cut and sewn. As a result, this denim has a much more uniform appearance when you first put it on. Over time however, it will fade and develop a beautiful patina and great expression around the seams. Woven with a 32/1 x 32/1 twill construction, it’s a true denim, but definitely different from what you’re used to seeing on a pair of jeans. It’s about the same weight as our heavy oxford, but wears a bit lighter and drapes a little more smoothly due to its twill weave. Despite its casual appearance, this fabric makes for a truly stunning dress shirt with a relaxed Italian vibe. Of course, it also shines as an easy-going, untucked shirt. Definitely go with soft details all around for this one. Try our Soft Roma Cutaway collar, Soft Square Two Button cuff, and no placket for a super sprezzy look.

    A perfect balance of substance and softness. This denim has a very pleasant weight that is between a heavy oxford and a standard broad cloth. It’s a must buy in compliment to a dark wash denim.

    When I received the shirt, there was quite a strong chlorine-like smell to it. I’ve only washed it once and the smell has faded a bit, so I’d imagine it will go away with enough washes.

    This fabric isn’t your Mother’s denim! It’s much finer and silker than typical denims. As a result, it’s much dressier when pressed, and, when lightly pressed, has a great casual look and feel.
