Monster weight, huge ropey yarns and a loose weave create a rare combination of heft and comfort. These are the Monster Rope Shirts.
Huge weight and equally big comfort are rarely found in the same garment. We occasionally find these gems. Today we found one for you in shirt form. Monster weight - yes, 13 ounces, one of our heaviest shirting styles. Building that heft are huge rope-like yarns woven in a style that looks hand-made. You see and feel the amazing texture these big yarns add. Not only is the yarn huge, it's luxuriously soft and uses a very loose, open weave. That technique allows the fabric for flow and drape beautifully. It's comfort on day one. Not be left unmentioned are the great, vibrant colors. This is a unique shirt from feel to style.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
