Fabric Glossary: Denim

Published on March 24, 2022

A symbol of classic Americana, denim is a sturdy cotton twill fabric often dyed with indigo. Invented in the 1870s, denim is most famously used to create our favorite blue jeans and is used in the construction of jackets, shirts, and accessories of all types. Available in various weights and textures, the denim used in our dress shirts are softer, lighter, and more breathable versions of the fabric of your blue jeans while retaining the same look that we all love.

Dress shirts made from denim will create a durable and low-maintenance alternative to your office staples. Denim's robustness prevents dress shirts from wrinkling, and its twill construction ensures a flattering fit every time. The versatility of denim is its biggest strength, as it can be emphatically casual or can be dressed up and even be worn with a tie. It will also fade slightly and get softer and softer with each wash.

For us, a denim dress shirt is a classic piece for any wardrobe. From business occasions to a simple lunch date, a denim dress shirt can be used to change things up from the usual poplins and oxfords while still keeping a sharp and classic look.
