It’s been a long year, but now it’s time to retire the sweatpants and t-shirt familiarity for something a bit more trendy. The big question, however, is how fashion forward is too fashion forward? Well, if you’re planning to beat the heat by rocking a see-through dress shirt to the office then you’ve already answered your own question. That’s not to say that sheer fabrics aren’t an option, but mesh shirts don’t mesh well past a certain set of extracurriculars. So, let’s look at a few fabrics that take the edge off of summertime sunshine in an office appropriate manner.
Give your wardrobe a rosy hue this summer. Our Blush Pink fabric can help. It is an ultra-lightweight cloth that was born to bask in the sunshine. Blush Pink features a broadcloth weave, so while it does fall on the wispier side of sheer, it is not obscene. Treat this fabric like you would a linen. It offers the same high caliber airflow with the added benefit of being office appropriate.
Warm weather has met its match in this refreshing Morning Blue fabric. The vibrant color may be reminiscent of clear summer skies, but it’s the super lightweight broadcloth weave that gives wearers a walking on sunshine appeal. Simply put, you’ll feel as light as a feather and fresh as a daisy in this breathable cloth. Put it to the test and make sure your wardrobe is summertime ready no matter what the occasion.
Lemonade Yellow Linen
Who says you can’t wear yellow? Not this Lemonade Yellow Linen Fabric, that’s for sure. It’s a vibrant, canvas-like cloth that promotes ample airflow to keep you cool when the temperature is not. Lemonade Yellow Linen – it’s as refreshing as the name implies. Add it to your wardrobe and see for yourself.
We know what you’re thinking -- an oxford weave for summer? Believe it or not, yes. Oxford weaves tend to be on the heavier side, which can feel counter intuitive to the point of this post, but would you believe that they breathe better than twills? They do. So, while an oxford weave may not be for everyone, if you’re looking for a thicker option that’s not going to leave you feeling the burn, then this classic White Oxford is just what the doctor ordered.

Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from and tailored in Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than regular button-up shirts.
