this yarn-dyed plaid is pretty interesting - at least in the way that Corridor makes it. individual cones of cotton are dyed with natural indigo. these cotton yarns are loomed together with a clay tone to create the fabric. the shirt is then sewn and washed to bring out the contrast of the natural indigo - making each shirt unique. sometimes the indigo has a hyper-masculine bent, but this shirt manages to walk the line of both understatement and overstatement.
