Samurai’s “Solid” crewneck tees use high-quality, raw cotton spun into slubby, #14 threads. This is then knit into a tough yet remarkably soft fabric using old-school “Daimaruki” loopwheel machines. They knit at a glacial pace, but they make a strong cotton fabric that’s rich in natural texture. The result is a soft and supple tee with some impressive heft. These tees are subtly beautiful, very breathable, and built to take a beating. The loopwheel knit helps secure the fit for a tee that won't shrink up or stretch out. Finished with a triple stitch collar for that no-sag finish. The fit here is classically slim, with the seamless sides coming through with some added comfort.
