The Heavyweight LS was manufactured in Michigan and designed for Michigan winters, so you know it has to be good. Made with a heavyweight fabric to keep you warm, it’s durable enough for everyday wear yet soft enough to sleep in. Keep reading to go behind the design of the Heavyweight LS.
HEAVYWEIGHT SUPIMA COTTON
Our signature 100% Supima cotton fabric is knit in the U.S. with an extra long unique staple fiber. This fiber is key to the unbeatable stretch, softness and color retention of our tees. Heavier, softer and more durable than the cheaper industry standards such as jersey blends, our Supima fabric is the best quality cotton money can buy and results in comfort and softness you won’t believe until you touch it.
Reinforced seams ensure the Heavyweight LS will withstand the test of time. By running a second stitch over the initial serge to lock in the seam, we double its strength and therefore, the life of the shirt. Reinforced seams around the collar, cuffs, shoulders and bottom hem of the shirt let you pull the shirt on as often as you’d like without fear of ripping.
FLAT SIDE SEAMS
Flat seams are typically used in athletic wear because of their ability to stretch with your movement while remaining flat against your skin. We used these seams down the length of the sides and the sleeves to minimize twisting and torquing of the fabric. Flat seams also mean you don’t get unflattering bumps in the seams, giving a clean and sleek finish so you can layer effortlessly with zero discomfort.
We’re all about looking put together while staying comfortable and feeling like you’re wrapped in American-made luxury. That’s how calculated construction led us to our signature tailored sides which we’ve carried over into all of our Men’s Model Tees. Rather than hanging straight down like an ill-fitting box, slight tailoring in the sides takes it steps up from your basic tee. All bodies are different, but this design is just enough to flatter any body shape.
To be sure you never have to experience that annoying tag rash many shirts cause, we just don’t sew in a tag. Instead, they’re stamped on so you won’t even know it’s there.
Ribbed fabric infused with Lycra create the collar and cuffs for a stretchable yet firm fit that won’t stretch out as you put your shirt on or roll up your sleeves. By adding stretch, these ribbed features let the shirt conform to you for a casual and comfortable style that’s still clean rather than sloppy.
