This rugged, yet refined twill from Cone Mills has an almost denim like appearance from its jet black warp and white weft. It makes for a rich shirt that will age wonderfully.
This style uses cotton twill cloth from Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC. This shirt has it all - it is eye catching without being loud, it is rugged but it has a refined sensibility. The black on white composition reminds you of a chambray, but the twill weave gives it a bit more formality. It's substantial at 7.5 ounces, but still has a relatively fine feel. We love how it pairs with denim or chinos. This fabric simply sews into a beautiful shirt with a color and texture you just don't see around. That's always something we're in to.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. The length hits just right so it looks great always. Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style. A traditional button down collar is secured with two side buttons and one back and has a nice soft roll.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. A finely folded locker loop sits over a box pleat on the back yoke. The front placket is also pleated, made the right way, using a true two piece construction. The feel is more substantial and the effort higher, but it's the right way. An angular chest pocket completes the front. Our cuffs are double button with rounded corners.
