BEHIND THE DESIGN
HEAVYWEIGHT CREW
WE SET OUT TO MAKE THE PERFECT PLAIN WHITE TEE. THEN WE ADDED MORE COLORS.
The women's Heavyweight Crew was designed to be the perfect white tee in your closet - that do anything, go anywhere, goes with everything t-shirt. It's the perfect balance between throwing on an old vintage tee and the sophistication of a slightly tailored silhouette with a curved bottom. It’s not too tight, not too loose, as soft as can be without being see-through and extremely versatile. And as always, it’s crafted for quality.
TAPED SIDE SEAMS
We built our tees for both maximum comfort and durability. Most brands use seam tape just along the shoulders but we also added seam tape down the tailored sides of the shirt. This additional step means the side seams stay flat resulting in a more flattering fit, while maintaining maximum comfort and durability.
REINFORCED SEAMS
A reinforced seam is a second stitch that is run over the initial serge, locking in the seam. This way, rather than a thread coming loose and the whole seam unraveling, our tees hold their shape and strength. The reinforced seams offer the most benefit to your wallet by ensuring the longevity of your tee, so go ahead, tug on it all you want.
PINSTRIPE LABEL
While all of our tees are tagless, the Pinstripe SS bears a unique Americana pinstripe pattern on the neck label. These symbolic stripes offer a unique canvas for us to proudly display our “Made in Michigan” tag and take pride in American manufacturing.
TRIMMED SLEEVES
Unique to the Pinstripe SS, we use a blend of Supima cotton and lycra to create a flexible and fitted lining on the sleeve cuff. This feature gives the cuff elasticity and durability and keeps the sleeve end from getting stretched out as you repeatedly put on and take off your shirt over time. Sleeve cuffs on tee shirts may not seem like a big whoop, but trust us, when sleeve cuffs stay fitted, your tee instantly looks more sophisticated.
FITTED COLLAR
The head hole is a very underappreciated part of the shirt. We use a special rib knit blend of 98% Supima cotton and 2% Lycra for added elasticity in the collar. This way, we can create a more fitted neckline that maintains its size and shape even after being stretched over your head and onto hangers.
HEAVYWEIGHT SUPIMA FABRIC
Our 100% Supima cotton fabric contains fibers that are especially long and tight making it a luxury cotton, typically only used by luxury brands. The tighter knit makes the fabric heavier and softer than traditional cotton blends, eliminating the need for an undershirt and increasing the durability of the shirt. The fabric maintains its softness even after the 100th wash, so go ahead, where it every single day.
