These special winter shirts have been created by spinning cashmere the jewel of fibers with superior quality cotton. To spin mixed fibers requires cotton of the highest quality as well as specialist knowledge and techniques available from only a handful of manufactures. The soft texture of cashmere against your skin, combined with the absorbency of the cotton, creates an enchanting indulgence that can only be enjoyed this time of year.
The scarcity of cashmere equates to the luxury it symbolizes across all natural fibers. Cashmere fibers are extremely thin, and lends to the particularly soft texture this fabric offers.
While mohair is 25 to 45 microns in diameter, cashmere never exceeds 19 microns. The unique luster of cashmere fabric is another mark of alluring luxury.
When crimped cashmere fibers become entangled, the entrapped air between them forms an insulating layer that prevents heat loss.
Most shirts on the market at this time of year are still either 100% cotton or polyester mixed. We wanted to offer an affordable cashmere product that can easily be worn on a day to day basis.
The inside and outside of the collar use different patterns to create a beautifully engineered, compact design. By using a technique known as shirring, we've created an elegant collar that wraps around your neck.
The shirt pattern has been improved by making the front panel larger and the back smaller than our previous slim fits. For a slim appearance and fit, the waist point and back darts have been lowered too.
The sleeves have been made slimmer, and point forward naturally. The curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket, which in turn means the cuff of the shirt sleeve and the jacket are parallel.
The smaller 9 mm diameter top button complements the sharp look of the collar. To match the elegant feel of the new model, the front placket, sleeve placket and stitch width have been narrowed.
The pocket has been placed slightly slanted on the shirt so that it will appear straight when worn. As an added elegant detail, the stitch on the pocket is triangular. (*Button-down shirts only.)
