Slub Yarn Tee by The Rite Stuff is ethically made in Japan with a 4 oz. cotton loopwheeled fabric. Woven on a low-tension, the uneven wavy texture is created on one side of the fabric. This textured side faces the inside to provide extra comfort during hot days, as the bumpiness of the slub face provides extra room for air and moisture circulation, and reduces the surface area on which the fabric and the skin have direct contact.
This beautifully woven fabric comes from Wakayama, Japan, famous for producing knit fabrics. To get the slub yarn tee just right, The Rite Stuff teamed up with esteemed Japanese manufacturer John Lofgren & Co. The result is an amazingly airy feeling garment that can be worn alone in the Summer and a layering piece in cooler conditions.
Styled after the work shirts issued to the Civilian Conservation Corps. program, which operated in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The neckband is slightly tighter than naval issued tees during the same period, and the arm sleeves are slightly longer. The body is boxy, and relatively shorter compared to modern tees.
