Indigo knitwear has surged in popularity recently, with far-reaching brands like J.Crew and Club Monaco putting out indigo tees and sweaters of all sorts this season. While those options are attractive, it’s brands like Iron Heart that are truly leading the charge with their breadth of knowledge in all things indigo. One such available option from the Japanese brand is the Iron Heart Indigo Dipped Long Sleeved Thermal Henley (IHTL-1303).
Waffle thermals are well-regarded for how incredibly comfortable they are, so combining the fading properties of indigo with this particular piece of knitwear is a no-brainer. The henley itself has been hand-dipped in indigo four times for the richest of blues, with the unique benefit of the dyeing process removing all shrinkage. It will be a nice feeling for the customer to know that their henley won’t shrink unpredictably after the first several washes. Another notable detail is the four-needle flat seam construction, proving that the shirt will stand the test of many, many wears.
Like all indigo-dyed clothing, the shirt should be washed separately for the first several (or maybe just all) washes. It’s also important to note that due to the stretchiness of the fabric, Iron Heart warns that there may be some variation in sizing.
