The makings of a tailored shirt

by Carlie Ballard | May 05, 2014

A classic tailored white shirt excites us to the core and is something the Carlie Ballard range will continue to feature in each of it's collections moving forward.

I wanted to share some fast facts on our Trailblazer shirt for you to ponder and appreciate everytime you button up and head out on your adventure.

It has 17 panels- 2 front panels, 1 back panel, 1 back yoke double layered, 1 collar band double layered, 1 reversible collar double layered, 2 pockets, 1 inner hidden placket, 2 sleeve straps, 2 sleeves, 2 sleeve cuffs, 2 sleeve cuff plackets. 

Our organic cotton is from Gujarat in West India where organic farming practices have reduced water consumption by up to 60% than traditional methods.

It is GOTS certified which means it has passed the many stringent global tests ensuring the absence of contaminants like nickel, lead, formaldehyde, amines, pesticides and heavy metals found in conventional cotton fabric.

And the bit we like the best, organic cotton farming is creating healthy and sustaianble farming work for Indian farmers.
