How Stuff Fits
At Skinny Water Culture we have a few different cuts of shirts. We learned in the first few years our customers like that we use top quality materials, but its hard to know what material, or cut we decided to use for a particular shirt from the confides of your home, while ordering over the internet. So we decided to come up with names for the different shirts we offer. So once you know you love a "Native" shirt, or a "Brackish" shirt, you will consistently get the same fabric and fit every time. Below are the various styles we currently offer.
The Vintage - The Vintage shirts are a 60% blend of polyester and 40% blend of cotton. They are a super lightweight 3.5 oz blend and extremely soft at 40 singles gsm. They have a worn in feel and will easily become your favorite shirt. This is the 20 year old concert tee that you can't throw away. They are on the slimmer side of fit, so please consider going up a size if you like a roomier fit.
The Brackish - The Brackish shirts are a 60% blend of cotton and 40% blend of polyester. It's a blend, thus the term Brackish came to mind. The Brackish shirts are a slightly more modern fit. They have a very soft, thin, vintage feel that will fit you like your favorite pair of jeans. It will breathe very well, and actually wick moisture away from the body, while maintaining the feel of cotton jersey. The Brackish shirts are also slightly longer than your average tee shirt and have a very subtle slimming effect on your body when worn. Yes! they make you look better than you actually are! Pretty cool huh? Fits slightly slimmer so if you like your shirts loose, order a size up.
The Caladesi Micro - Caladesi Micro shirts are 100% moisture wicking microfiber polyester. With a current sun protection rating of 50 UPF, it's amazing how breezy and thin these shirts are, while remaining super durable. The Caladesi Micro shirts are what we use for our artists to express themselves to their fullest on a performance shirt. The graphics are primarily larger, and dye sublimated so there is no clogging of the porous fabric. Rather than adding a layer of ink "on top" of the fabric, we dye the design right into the shirt. There is no hand feel at all on the graphic, and the dexterity of the performance is not sacrificed.The Caladesi Micro's have a slightly slender, longer fit, so if you prefer a looser fit, please order one size larger.
