Description

These Flying Horse shirts are much more expensive than the standard Chrysanthemum kind, since they are made with superior long-staple cotton. Long-staple, or supercombed, cotton, has all of the shorter cotton strands 'combed' out of the yarn. This makes for a much smoother and more supple feel, and the difference in perceived feel against the skin of supercombed versus regular cotton is staggering!

When I received these undershirts, I was hit with nostalgia: I can distinctly remember my father wearing this brand regularly into his 60s. I had no idea these undershirts were as expensive as they are, but I know my dad was really into shirt quality. He spent his early years in Hong Kong measuring up US Navy sailors for tailored shirts, and he was a real stickler for fabric quality and fit. He was also amazing at ironing shirts to crisp perfection, a skill which I certainly do not have, despite my best efforts!

These shirts are available in both sleeveless and T-shirt styles, much like the Chrysanthemum shirts I also offer. Where these shirts differ is the quality of cotton used. When I first started wearing supercombed cotton shirts, I quickly realized I would have real trouble going back to regular cotton shirts because of how much more comfortable the supercombed (long-staple) cotton shirts are! If you've never owned a supercombed/Swiss cotton shirt, these are well worth trying. You may never be able to settle for a regular shirt again!

These shirts are excellent for tea sessions. The last thing you need to be worrying about when appreciating tea seriously is whether or not your clothing is uncomfortable!
