Type 444 Long Sleeve Boomerang Shirt
The Boomerang Shirt is cut without a shoulder seam. Usually this requires a straight horizontal shoulder, like a kimono, but to give a more comfortable fit this pattern is sloped over the shoulder. This sets the front and back parts of the shirt at an angle to each other, making a large boomerang-shaped panel. This also means that the grain of the fabric is pushed onto the bias down the body. Cuttin this way makes the Boomerang Shirt slightly stretch with a very satisfying bounce to the pockets.
This piece has been made from Tenders interpretation of the classic welsh stripe. Named for the even spaced patterned wooden fabrics traditional worn in wales, this is an 25 dips indigo dyed cotton and ecru cotton as a plain weave calico. It has then been dyed in England using dye naturally extracted from Juglans Nigra, The Black Walnut. The first recorded use of this dye dates back as far as ancient Rome, where it was used as hair dye and re discovered across medieval Europe. Artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Van Dyke have also used inks made from concentrated walnut.

Tender is a British company, founded by William Kroll. Following a secondment in Kojima learning the denim trade, William brought back his experience and created the brand calling on the traditional skill set of the British craftsmen. Tender has its roots in antique workwear and machinery, especially from the Great British Steam Age. The important face of Tender is the nurture which is put into the clothes; in their research, design, manufacture and wear. Tender products are designed to be worn hard with the respect of the strong provenance and stories that are found within the garment.
