About a Shirt
Since its inception in the 1950’s, Façonnable has been renowned for its special edition shirts. Unparalleled craftsmanship. Singular design. Personal style. These are the hallmarks of our special shirts.
Beginning today, we’ll tell you the story behind each one.
WE BEGIN WITH SPRING’S PATCHWORK
Patchwork, the piecing together of different swatches of fabric, dates back to the 11th century when the technique was used to create durable bed quilts. From its humble beginnings hundreds of years ago, we find the homespun fabric in all manners of fashion.
Just like a quilt that is meticulously sewn together, our blue, gray, white and striped cotton patchwork shirt represents authentic, handcrafted style. It recalls a shirt that’s been lived-in, enjoyed, and tenderly put back together. We’ve done the work for you. All you have to do is to wear it, preferably slightly untucked.
