Our take on this classic, slim-fitting shirt is made from sustainably-sourced, ultra soft, light-weight jersey. The 100% cotton striped fabric was diverted from the landfill and comes from one of our Carolina Textile District partner factories. Overdyed for with a broken-down, rumpled look. It’s cozy, it’s casual, and you’ll never want to take it off.
Care: Machine wash cold, hang to dry.
- Sewn in worker-owned factory at Opportunity Threads in Valdese, NC
