A new shirt for us. Fine Cord (also known as “micro cord” or “baby cord”) is subtle, elegant and lightweight (the Italians use it for summer suiting). And from a distance it can appear velvet-like. This shirting fabric clocks in at a thin,18 gauge wale, so it doesn’t feel heavy or hot, just soft. (BTW, “wale'' refers to the number of ridges per inch. The lower the wale, the chunkier the cord.) This unique paisley pattern comes to us from Japan thanks to the textile gurus at Three Looms and feels like the kind of thing a British rockstar in The Seventies might have worn, which is to say very on-trend right now. The silhouette is based on our button down shirt body, which has a modern tailored look that is a happy median between a Full and Slim fit. Think of these Fine Cord Button Downs as an elevated alternative to a chamois or an easy way to add some rugged cool underneath a sportcoat or suit.
