Today we're going to show you another new collection of our t-shirts, one we call the Desert Shades. They each start with our extra soft organic cotton that's knit right in California. Each is treated to our classic t-shirt construction and spot on fit. The colors represent a spectrum of earth tones that we love. Each has a softness to it and adds something different to your collection. From Light Khaki to Stone to Mustard, these colors really have a strong year-round place.
Fit is much more important on a t-shirt than you might think. We set out to strike the right balance between a tailored fit and an easy to wear piece. The shoulders are fitted, which keeps the overall look clean. The sleeves hit at just the right point on the arm and are tight enough to prevent them from winging out. The body is slightly tapered, but easy enough to not be mistaken as an undershirt. Finally, the length hits just right so it falls below the waist line, but does not cover your entire backside. Overall this shirt can stand alone or layer with a button down.
Construction details are classic and sturdy. We start with an inset collar using rib. Neck and shoulders are taped, which adds effort to construction, but provides an extra touch of structure to the garment. Double needle hems finish the sleeves and bottom and a slightly narrower gauge is used to lend a small element of refinement. This is the right way to make a t-shirt, without cutting any corners.
