With a 15.5-oz fabric, the UES extra-heavy flannel shirt is one of the thickest-flannel, most amazing shirts in the world. Using the dobby loom, UES irregularly changed the length and location of the warp and weft to create an expression that differs from the usual twill. This creates the almost pear-skin-like texture on the surface of the material and is therefore called crepe weave material or Amundsen weave. The 15.5-oz fabric has been woven using an old-fashioned weaving machine named Schoenherr. This machine does not excessively pull the thread and so produces the soft texture.
Louis Ferdinand Schönherr (1817-1911), together with his brother Wilhelm, is regarded as the inventor of the mechanical cloth-weaving loom in Saxony and thus founded the Saxon cloth and woolen goods industry.
In this shirt, selvedge was lavishly used on the all-end back of the right-front body. With the study of balance for the threading of the warp and weft, the fabric moves moderately and although it is thick, it is completed with a pleasant-fitting feel.
The entire shirt is full of superior-quality details and uses an outstanding, highly skilled sewing process. The main body seams have been rolled and triple-chain-stitched, thus producing a strong garment that can be cherished for a long time. A piping process was used to obtain a strong rolled hem.
The buttons are made from ivory palm nut with a beautiful gradient tone. Ivory palms are medium-sized-to-tall palms reaching up to a height of 20 m, with pinnate leaves. The "nut" is covered with pericarp, which is removed by animals, They help counter both the destruction of the rain forest and the elephants. For many years the buttons on uniforms worn by U.S. soldiers came from ivory palm nuts. Like so many natural dyes and textile fibers, vegetable ivory has been replaced with less expensive synthetics.
The cut is a modern slim fit.
By using the direct dyeing of colored threads, the colors will fade moderately and you can enjoy the soft ageing from continuous wearing and washing.
