This is the fabric we use for fittings. Why? It's universally loved and good for almost everything: gym shirt, undershirt, and everyday wear. It's an equal parts blend of 2 different fabrics and great for its versatility, quicker drying, and a bit of moisture-wicking built in. It's soft, yet durable, and great for all body types.
145gsm / 4.3oz
Our composite blend of cotton & poly, each with a different dyeing temperature. This allows us to target and isolate each individually to create textured/heathered looks or “union dye” to create solid colors.
100% Cotton Slub - 156gsm (4.6oz)
“Tragedy to triumph. You don't become legendary without some bumps and bruises along the way.”
“Slub” was originally a term used to denote an imperfection in the fabric, like a slight knot or lump in the yarn. But when controlled properly, it can give a unique, almost tonal, uneven surface to the fabric. This allows us to create a textured high/low patten that gives this 100% cotton fabric a very distinctive look.
156gsm / 4.6oz
100% Cotton, but still has texture and a very distinct tonal look. Slightly heavier than the Shake & Bake, but it has a soft, almost “broken in” feel to it, like a well-worn perfectly broken in vintage t-shirt. It's brand new, but it might feel like it's been your favorite shirt for a decade or two.
100% Heavyweight Cotton - 230gsm (6.8oz)
“Thick and heavy, yet soft and durable. So good it'll make you want to fight for democracy.”
Oh man is this an awesome fabric. Typically cotton at 18 singles is something called "open end" or "carded open end" cotton which is very rough to the touch. Not with us... not here. We've made an 18 singles 100% cotton, but with a high-end combed ringspun cotton. This way it gets that heavyweight feel and thickness, but still has a rugged softness about it.
230gsm / 6.8oz
Thick and heavy, but still soft. It's over 50% thicker than the Shake & Bake fabric in your fitting. 100% Cotton, combed ringspun, and built to be worn.
This thing is a champion. It definitely ranks high on the “big-boned approved” scale, while still being appealing to most everyone with its soft touch and overall ruggedness. (We're just a “dependability” away from this turning into a pickup truck commercial.)
