A denim shirt with impeccable credentials. The denim is selected from from Italian master-weaver's Albiate's 1830 collection - so called because the fabrics have been in production since 1830.
The base cloth is a unique 2-fold yarn, natural indigo yarn-dyed in this case, but also available in an undyed variation. When woven into a denim structure, this creates a fine, luxurious 'oxford' base in terms of its aesthetic and feel. It will wash and wear as good denim should.
The buttons are mother of pearl from the more sustainable Troca shell, chosen for their aesthetic quality and durability.
As with all Smyth & Gibson shirts, the construction is exemplary: In their factory in Derry, cloth is laid by hand without mechanical tension or suction. Patterns are hand cut and laid piece by piece. Cloth is initially cut by hand before moving to the band knife, which allows for precise curved cutting and avoid seam puckering. collars have a 14 piece construction - a traditional construction technique practiced by the finest shirt-makers.
