Ultimate Non Iron Refers to 2 items: The way the fabric has been made and the garments construction.  The fabric is ‘pre-cured’.  The non iron finish is embedded into the individual yarns in vapour form and not done in a traditional resin format.  The garment also has ‘taped’ seams which mean that all possible seams have been fused together for lifetime flatness. 100% natural cotton fabric with a non iron finish that if cared for following laundering instructions does not need to be ironed.  The non iron finish lasts much longer than the traditional resin finishes.  The fabric is very soft, comfortable and luxurious feeling along with being very strong and durable.
Twill Twill refers to the type of weave.  It is categorised by very distinctive fine diagonal lines in the fabric.  This is achieved as the weft yarn goes over 2 or more warp yarns.  Our twill fabric also as a peached finish, which means that the surface of the fabric is brushed to soften its handle and make it feel like a ‘peach’. Incredibly soft to touch but also durable because of its construction.  Creates a casual looking shirt as the handle is not crisp.
