Early Québécois explorers struggled with the wilds of the frontier. An ancient French-Canadian expletive, 'sacrébleu!' undoubtedly was cursed on many early trips down the St. Lawrence. Taking the literal meaning of 'Sacred Blue', this is perhaps the most unique blue shirt money can buy.
Each shirt is laboriously hand indigo dyed with three dips in our vat - leaving each shirt with unique markings and colouration. The use of pure superfine Australian merino means this shirt will stay with you as long as that favourite sweater of yours.

The use of merino allows for minimal washes, much like selvedge denim. This means you can go for months without washing, and indeed we have with our test samples (we‘ve even gone over a year without noticing an odour). For optimal care, hand wash or wash on cold delicate cycle and lay flat to dry. Do not machine wash warm or hot. Do not tumble dry. Using pure indigo to dye these shirts mean they will age like a pair of Japanese indigo jeans. As such, it is advised to wash separately in case of dye running (all our shirts though have been treated to minimize running).
