Today we released an experimental IPR item, it's our first slub cotton t-shirt. Slub cotton has extraordinary texture with styling that offers vintage sensibility. Available in Heather Red and Heather Blue.

Slub cotton jersey is knitted from yarns that were specifically designed to be uneven; the yarns fluctuate in thickness from thin to fat. The unevenness creates a desirable texture.

This all-cotton fabric is 170 gr/m, which puts it on the heavier side of normal t-shirt weights. The fabric is knitted in Japan and the t-shirt is made-to-order in our East Rutherford, NJ factory.

Long sleeves and henleys available by request.

For the next 5 days, you can opt into the IPR and save. Production for the Slub Cotton IPR begins 3/25. Offer valid until until 3 PM, Monday, 3/11.

Today, we're doing a t-shirt fabric challenge. We did a sweatshirt challenge months ago, some of you are currently participating, and it's going to wrap up soon.

Now we've identified two t-shirt fabrics, both all cotton, and we think one will become our cotton t-shirt fabric of the future. One uses a single ply yarn, the other uses a twisted yarn and special finishing. These fabrics are from two different knitting mills inside Portugal.

These types of challenges are most important with knits because they endure the most washing and in different conditions (people wash things differently). If we can get 48 engaged guys to test these t-shirt fabrics and provide feedback, we can make better decisions about which fabric is best.

In this test, both t-shirts are black (to accurately compare color), both crew neck, but you can specify short sleeve or long sleeve. And obviously all of our fit options come with these t-shirts. The price is $95 for both.

I hope some of you will participate. You can read more about it here: https://toddshelton.com/t-shirts/cotton-tshirt-fabric-challenge

We found a mill in Italy that we're excited about. It's small, family-run, only employs about 30 people - has an ethos we endorse - and they're doing high-quality work. One fabric they specialize in is Seersucker. We run Seersucker every Spring, so this year we switched from Japanese to Italian.

We're also testing a trouser fabric from this mill that'll release next Month.

Today we're releasing Vintage Stripe Seersucker in an IPR. It's an off-white base, with a dull navy stripe. It's classic and sophisticated. We make the shirts to order in our East Rutherford, NJ factory. If you have any fit questions, let us know.

Today we released a new wool/cotton trouser fabric. We're considering it as a replacement to our core fabric. Our thinking is that offices are relaxing, suiting style fabrics will be less necessary in the future - but a desire for a nice trouser (not all cotton) will remain.

We're hoping guys who own our El Capitan trousers will opt into this release and wear test them. If you don't own our trousers, but wear trousers weekly, your feedback would be valuable too. If you're willing to give feedback, use code: elcap to get 10% off.

I'm putting together some rules for clothing. I've written 7 rules and I'm looking to release them in late Summer. The rules will serve somewhat of a roapmap for guys looking for guidance/clarity.

Rule #1: Pants must be darker in color than your shirts.
Any thoughts on this rule?

Do you have any rules you follow?
