For those of you who do not know why a fabric is called 80's, allow us a quick lesson in textile science. 80's refers to the fine nature of the spun yarn. The higher the number, the finer the yarn. To spin such fine yarn you need high quality long staple cotton. This summer Grayers decided to take their casual shirtings to a new level. They used extra fine yarn, often used on dress shirts, and wove a "featherweight" cloth. The Portofino ultra light, breathable and super soft. It was inspired from the beautiful fine poplin shirts often making their rounds on the gentlemen of Portofino. For rich and saturated colors, they decided to double dye these shirts in beautiful summer tones.
