Samurai’s Inlay Solid t-shirts are a real labour of love. They’re slowly loopwheeled in Wakayama using aged cotton. Cotton ageing refers to the process of allowing the cotton bales to breathe and decompress. While cotton bales typically arrive compacted – Samurai's cotton is left to sit in a temperature and humidity-controlled room – thereby allowing it to naturally expand. This ‘ripening’ process can take a month or two, but it really brings out the cotton’s naturally thick, full, fluffiness. 

To slow things down just that little bit further, the aged cotton thread is then passed through hanging loopwheelers to be inlay knit. The more complicated inlay knitting method reduces rate and yield, but results in a robust tee with unbeatable levels of softness and comfort. The inlay knitting technique also gives the tees a textured, terry-fleeced feel on the inside. These are beautiful, small-batch tees that really stand in testament to Samurai’s eye for detail.

The Inlay tee fits slim across the arms and body with a higher-set neckline. We recommend sizing up one from your usual Samurai tee size.
