-Shirt Denis or also called “batik short sleeve”: a slim cut (meaning a shapely cut, slightly curved in at the waist to follow the body shape. By the way, “slim” does not mean tight - tight will be only depending on the size you are choosing compare to your body measurements! The curve of the cut makes it simply better to follow the body curves. Made of fine cotton lawn, not to thick but strong as it is using high-quality long fibre.
Collar is a straight one, bottom hem is straight with side slits. A back yoke with double pleat is added for comfort and style. The sleeve is slightly above the elbow
A linen version is available, in plain colors. Our linen is Italian fibre, soft and very comfortable to wear in tropical climate.
-Shirt Greg is a trendy style, specifically best for casual party wear, using 2 types of thinner fabrics: a light lawn for trend and comfort for the shirt called simply “shirt Greg”: to compensate its lightness, the cut is slightly looser for the same size then shirt Denis; As per previous shirt, is a slim cut and straight collar, but a rounded hem to wear out (not tucked in). Folded out sleeves gives a more informal look to the style, a soft front placket for the buttoning.
A thinner cotton voile is used for the style “Greg Extra light”: high quality voile 100% cotton for lasting effect and use. The high-quality fabrics we use make the prints stand out beautifully
For both fabrics, we recommend not to iron the garment -except collar if necessary: to let it dry nicely spread, the fabric will have a natural tidiness which is just perfect for the style
Shirt Hawaiian is a more classic style, using high quality lawn fabric 100% cotton, exclusive prints as for all our Collections – made by hand in traditional block printing technique. The collar is camp style for a more casual effect, the cut straight at the sides, with straight hem and side slits for comfort. Its linen version exists: it is called Shirt Boris.
All our Batik shirts are printed by hand, using batik block hand stamped technique and high quality dyes for lasting effect. Details like mother of pearl buttons, carefully chosen thread colors and refined cut and sewing make our shirts highly refined and appreciated.
There is no shrinkage to be expected: for the cotton printed Batik, having gone through several boiling to clear all the wax, for the linen, we pre-wash all using softeners for better feel.
As Batik technique is all done by hand, we recommend to wash the items separately, especially the first few washes, as some excess color may be expected. There is no risk of discoloring except if using strong chemical which will also affect the fabric quality.
The quality of our garments is well known: all our fabrics are carefully chosen to be the best available for each purpose. The type of cut for the best fit, sewing and finishing are all looked into to make the best experience for our customers.
