Inspired by 1950’s American athletic wear, the Embroidered Arrow Short Sleeve Tee in Army has a full flat–lock stitch construction originally designed to add extra strength at the seams when worn during contact sports. Other features include underarm V inserts and an embroidered “broad arrow” detail below the neckline.Made using 100% organic cotton, the slightly heavier 220grm uncarded cotton has been specially developed to replicate the look and feel of classic American sportswear of the 1950s. With its uneven texture and feel.
In order to achieve a desired aged look, each garment has undergone a unique pigment dying process in which fading of colour and a dry handle is part of the aesthetic. Further fading will occur through wear and washing.
