More about the black linen shirt
The linen shirt can be used hanging loose or with part of the shirt tucked into the lining of your trousers or a skirt for a modern and interesting look.
To obtain a more relaxed and casual look the manchettes can be unbuttoned and the sleeves rolled up for a cool everyday look. This linen shirt is a fantastic basic item that will enrich every wardrobe and it can especially become one of your favorite items in the classic colors black and white.
The linen shirt is sewn in 100% strong linen. The shirt can be washed on a delicate program in your washing machine. It’s prefered to wash the shirt separately the first couple of times and after that wash it with similar colors.A good advice we received from the Viking museum in Roskilde is to wet linen clothes before putting them in the washing machine. That makes it easier for the machine to watch the fabric and ensures that no area is left out of the washing.Linen wrinkles and that is part of the charms. It’s part of the unique material and how it expresses itself. The shirt can be ironed after being washed, but we recommend to just let the shirt dry on a hanger and avoid to iron it. If you choose a lack shirt the colour will become less intense as time passes. This will give the shirt a new cool look, but if you prefer a midnight dark shirt you can for example refresh the colour with a black Dylon colour in the washing machine after sometime. The shirt is designed in Denmark, the linen is produced in Latvia and the shirt is sewn in Bulgaria. Both partners that we have worked with for many years.
This linen shirt has an OVERSIZE 1 silhouette, so the shirt is meant to hang loose and sway around your body. If you are looking for a more fitted shirt you can optionally go down one or two sizes. The shirt has a full length of 71 cm in a size medium.
