The Devil is in the Details
The smallest change can make the biggest difference. Example - golf balls. Originally, golf balls were smooth until golfers started to notice that used balls with nicks, bumps and slices seemed to fly farther compared to a smooth ball.

 

As used golf balls became a trend, sales of new balls declined. Engineer and manufacturer William Taylor studied what made nicked balls better than smooth ones, aiming to supply players with what they wanted. He found that these cuts were acting as “turbulators” (they induce turbulence in the layer of air next to the ball), which reduces drag when flying in the air.


 

After discovering this, Taylor patented a new golf ball design in 1905 introducing symmetrical nicks and cuts (today referred to as dimples) to mimic the same turbulence in the boundary layer. Thanks to William Taylor, all golf balls today have 250-400 dimples.
 
We’re focused on the details because small changes do make a big difference, even in men’s basics. For example, we use a flat lock stitch in our underwear as opposed to the common overlocked stitch.  A flat lock stitch joins the  edges of fabric with a single thread on top and below the seam. The result is a single layer of fabric, with more elasticity and no extra fabric between seams which is unsightly, uncomfortable and unnecessary.

Not all t-shits are created equal.
When we set out to make our favorite t-shirt, we wanted something that was light weight, slim fitting and looks great on any body type. So we started with 100% Peruvian cotton rather than traditional t-shirt cotton. We love the result - a quintessential shirt for (almost) any occasion.

Peruvian pima cotton is among the world’s finest, prized for its unequaled softness and finished look. The smooth soft feel is a result of the growing conditions in its native Peru, where rich soil soaks up just the right amount of moisture at perfect equatorial temperatures.



It’s considered a luxury cotton because of the long length of each fiber, up to twice as long as ordinary cotton. The length of each fiber determines the softness, smoothness and durability of the yarn and finished garment. Peruvian Pima yields a thread that can be woven multiple times into a piece of fabric, creating a dense, soft fabric that holds up in the wash - because a great look shouldn’t require extra sensitive care. We hope you love it as much as we do.
