our suppliers are an extension of family
We were visiting with one of our favorite suppliers, a family man with 50 years of experience in apparel. We told him we wanted a shirt as light as linen, but durable. We went through swatch after swatch, but weren't happy, so we asked "Is there anything you haven't made but have always wanted to?" He lit up and brought out a cotton / linen / Tencel blend. Right away we knew it was the one - extremely light weight, great drape, and smooth to the touch. We followed up a few weeks later and said we named the shirt after him--Freeman. He responded, "Feels good to be a part of the family."
