Blluemade and Standard & Strange‘s Indigo Linen Western Shirt is a California heat-wave indigo linen dream. They’re made in NYC, featuring plant fibers sourced from Belgium, and are useful wherever the weather is on the sticky side.
If you didn’t know, linen is highly breathable, so it’s often promoted as a useful fabric to wear in warm weather, which it is, but it’s also so much more. It’s the oldest textile known to man(tell that to your girlfriend when she’s asking you why you ordered so much stuff from Blluemade); it’s typically more durable than cotton; easily absorbs moisture; it keeps its structure and color; it’s hypoallergenic – and then some.
This particular linen is 7.7 oz. 100% Belgian Linen woven from long, strong, flax plant fibers make up the composition of this tough linen, producing eye-catching thick-fibered texture, and a soft hand that’s never itchy. The shirts are indigo dyed, with a green overdye, feature double-snap closures on the double-sawtooth flap chest pockets, matching snap-adjusting sawtooth sleeve cuffs, western-style back yoke, and a custom tag.
