Summer Camp holds a weird place in our childhood memories, equal parts tedium and nostalgia. We always cringe at the thought of 'Arts and Crafts' day and painting misshapen clay mugs that we had made. But all of us remember our first Summer Crush.
She was always 3 or 4 years older (and probably had a boyfriend), but we were completely oblivious in our infatuation. Inevitably we built up enough courage to talk to her, only to mutter "Nice shoes" and walk away in shame.
Our Summer Crush shirt is a member of a group of shirts that remind us of those long, lazy Summers that we had as kids (and wish we could return to now). The Summer Crush is cut from a Summer-weight orange and blue check poplin and features our new Hugh & Crye button-down collar.
is a particular variety that is grown in only a few other places. It is renowned as some of the best in the world. It has an extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric.
Poplin, sometimes called broadcloth, is a plain weave which means the threads alternately cross over and then under each other. This results in a very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel, particularly with higher thread counts. Also, poplins look very crisp when ironed.
