The Indigo Red Check contains a micro check in a washed indigo broadcloth. The small check offers a slight bit of formality if you’re looking for a shirt that you can dress up or down in that kinda preppy, kinda heritage, definitely American looking summer shirt.
The fabric is a good weight for all seasons and should fade wonderfully over time. The yarn is dyed in a true indigo and rinsed down but will become more contrast heavy over time - like a slow burn pair of jeans.
Fabric: This fabric was designed and milled exclusively for Corridor by the Original Madras Trading Company, a 100 year old textile and shirt maker.
Tailoring: The shirt was sewn responsibly by the good people and tailors at the Original Madras Trading Company in Madras (Chennai), India.
Responsibility: What does responsibility mean? People talk a lot about transparency and sustainability. I think the sum is responsibility. For Corridor, this means that we actually work in the factory with the tailors every season to create the garments and ensure the workshops are environmentally certified and (ISO-9001) and socially accountable (SA 8000). You can feel good knowing where and how the garment was made.
