VELVA SHEEN - Crewneck T-Shirt in Washed Black
Brand: Velva Sheen
We love Velva Sheen's crewneck t-shirt. A t-shirt may be a simple thing, but some are truly better than the rest. Velva Sheen's has just the right combination of a great fit, soft hand, and in the perfect palette of colors.
Description: This short sleeved crew neck t-shirt in soft jersey is free of side seams thanks to their circular loom technique. The fit is slightly boxy in the body with a high armhole, but fits true-to size. The shirt comes rolled in a paper sleeve.
Color: Washed black (imagine a black that's been washed a hundred times)
Fabric: 100% cotton. Woven with a unique textured yarn that imparts a slightly slubby, textured effect.
Origin: Made in the USA
Care: Wash cold with like colors. Lay flat or hang dry to minimize shrinkage and preserve color.
About Velva Sheen: Velva Sheen began operation in 1932 in Cincinnati, OH. Over the years they manufactured t-shirts and undershirts for the military and specialized in collegiatewear, but the 1990s brought financial hardship to the company, and the company's operations came to a halt.
In 2009 Velva-Sheen found a new champion in a small Japanese design firm who had known and loved the brand in its heyday. They got involved with the goal of bringing the brand back to life, and moved manufacturing operations to Los Angeles, one of the few regions where sportswear manufacturing continued to thrive in the USA.
