The Burma Cloth Workshirt

For well-made wardrobe building blocks, it helps to start with a good technique. Burma cloth, a fundamental weaving method in which threads interlace alternately to form a checkerboard-like pattern, allows for texture that is stronger and firmer than most, making it an ideal match for our work shirt. Please note that this item is final sale and cannot be returned.

Story

For well-made wardrobe building blocks, it helps to start with a good technique. Burma cloth, a fundamental weaving method in which threads interlace alternately to form a checkerboard-like pattern, allows for texture that is stronger and firmer than most, making it an ideal match for our work shirt. The payoff of this tight weave structure is twofold: high thread density and snag-resistance. While any raw materials can be used to produce burma cloth, we figured a breathable 100% cotton can do no wrong. With the framework in place, we made light and dark variations, with Louropel buttons sourced from Portugal, double-needle stitching, and a discreet cuff-to-elbow patch.

  • Breathable burma cloth cotton for year-round comfort

  • Due to the nature of indigo dye, crocking, or color transfer, is normal. Avoid rubbing against lighter fabrics and wash separately for the first few washes.
