CHEST SIZE CHART (for Polos, Hoodies, T-Shirts, Tanktops and Sweaters)
How to measure:
Our sizes are based on actual measured chest size on the garments.
Grab yourself a measuring tape and wrap the tape around your chest just below the armpits, making sure that the tape is horizontal. This measurement determines your chest size.
Luxurious raw wild-silk spun into a thick thread and knitted into a masculine chain armor look. The combination consists of a sleeveless top and a detachable, huge hood. Shiny, black hand-cut buttons made of Celluloide Acetate close the sides and attach the hood. The shirt has been produced by local craftsmen. Planting and harvesting took place in the woodlands and olive groves in the Umbrian hills of Italy. During its growing period in the ground, nature applied her unpredictable design. Natural colouring by microbial activity, almost figurative drawings and holes created by roots growing through the shirt, bestow a unique look for every single shirt with a distinct character according to maturation. With its individual serial number, engraved into the Celluloide Acetate badge, the shirt and its history can be easily traced.
