Women’s Mill Shirt in PlasmaDry™ midweight corduroy
If you haven’t seen cord of this quality before, prepare to be astounded. The depth of colour and soft hand of the fabric are truly lovely.
It’s a great place to start for a McNair shirt that will take you through the gentler months.
The design has moved off the mountain with cord, it’s now more elegant work shirt than rugged mountain jacket. It’s a tad shorter and loses the dramatic scoop. The signature leather logo locker tab remains on the back along with the back placket and van dyke stitching. With a single welted pocket and subtle contrast stitching the aesthetic is simpler with less detailing.
The strength, beauty and added PlasmaDry™ performance make this shirt an extremely versatile everyday shirt.
A new chapter for a traditional fabric. Corduroy, along with moleskin has a very rich history belonging to a a group of of fabrics which in the early 19th Century was widely known as fustian. In essence a strong, hard wearing woven cloth made with a linen warp and cotton weft. The Calder Valley in West Yorkshire and neighbouring East Lancashire became synonymous with fustian production however by the end of the 20th Century virtually all the companies had disappeared. The best moleskin and corduroy in the world is still supplied by the last remaining supplier and manufacturer in the Calder Valley.
These exceptionally hardwearing and beautiful fabrics that have unchanged specifications going back generations are now supercharged with PlasmaDry™.
PlasmaDry™ is a big story. It changes everything by bringing previously unseen levels of water and stain repellency without using the harmful fluorocarbons still heavily relied upon in the world of plastic jackets. The laser surface enhancement creates a permanent structural change to the fibres in the weave to provide a unique and durable water repellency and stain resistance. The fabric is changed at a molecular level without affecting the soft feel or natural look. Its genius allows us to meet the McNair promise of beautiful natural fabrics, enhanced for performance – where look and protection are one.
