Big weight and big linen wrapped in an Italian denim and transformed into a vintage workshirt. This is the New Italy Big Linen Workshirt.

This rare Italian denim uses a unique composition to create a fresh look and feel. It starts with color. A bright grey warp and crisp white weft give this denim a vibrant concrete color. There is a subtle vertical grain that adds a sense of texture and character. At 9 ounces you get a very solid feeling shirt, but this is where the linen is transformative. At 40% linen content, you instantly notice a supple and flowing feel to the garment that cotton alone rarely achieves. This helps the workshirt fit and feel great the moment you put it on. The balance of ruggedness and linen refinement is what makes this a true standout workshirt.

Italy Big Linen Workshirt  
Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most pleasurable. Clean design, perfect fit, uniquely functional fabric. That's what we're presenting today with our all new Wafflel Crewnecks. Casually rugged, American-made perfection at a remarkable value.

We start with a classic long sleeve crewneck shape. It's tailored enough to work as a layering piece or a stand-alone. We enhance this core style with wide ribbed cuffs and a thick ribbed collar for a touch more ruggedness. The bottom hem gets a gentle curve and is finished with a clean overlocked stitch. It's a base you can feel comfortable in instantly. 

The fabric is what truly makes this garment. The waffle weave is what delivers true comfort and function. The weave itself helps create space that controls heat around your body. It also delivers the signature thermal look and beautiful box-like texture. The 6 ounce weight is a versatile sweet-spot and we garment wash to make things even softer right on day one. Just pick your favorite color or get all three at an even better value.

Think of today as a battle of true old-world selvedge denim. Japan vs. USA. Fortunately there are really no losers in this contest, you just get to pick from two of the purest forms of selvedge denim made in the world. Do you go with the huge character, big slub, true loomstate from Japan, or the deadstock, slightly more controlled American version from the last great selvedge producer in the USA?

Meet the Selvedge French Terry - complete freedom of movement and incredible comfort in a classic pant. This is a first for us and we can confidently say, it’s a selvedge experience you need to have.

The moment one of our favorite mills in Japan presented us with this fabric we knew it was going to be a special opportunity. They had developed a selvedge fabric like nothing we had seen before - a selvedge French Terry. It promised to have the luxurious comfort of a knit with a more traditional fabric look. We sewed up a sample and can safely say it delivers. Upon first glance, you see what appears to be a deeply saturated jet black pant. Sewn up like denim it looks timeless and can take on a rugged or slightly formal look depending on what you pair with it. Rolling the cuffs reveals a contrasting loop back knit in grey. The moment you pick them up you understand this is a totally different fabric. The feel of a tightly woven French Terry immediately comes through and delivers sweatpant comfort and freedom of movement. They stretch and conform to your body. Sitting, walking, standing - this is a pant you can truly live all day in. Selvedge like no other.
