We've been looking for a contemporary brand to fill this big hole we feel we've had in our lineup...and it was right in front of us. A company that takes heritage manufacturing techniques and turns them into shirts like this is everything we've ever wanted. Each time we put on a shirt, we think "Why doesn't everyone do it like this?" There's no better feeling than that, and honestly, there might not be a better feeling than the tees from Jackman. These are a bit lighter and comfier than the heavy-knotted Dotsume tees. The best we can compare them to is the fluffiness of a hemp tee.
These are pocket T-shirt made from USA Cotton, which is mainly produced in the cotton-growing area of the Mississippi River basin in the United States. Air spinning, which prepares fluff with a length of 13 mm to 33 mm into yarn by centrifugal force, creates a crisp texture. You'll also see the most traditional Baseball uniform pocket design. W stitching, the shape of the pocket mouth, and the larger size are all typical details from the 1890s until they completely removed them. The gusset on the bottom of the pocket is a special specification that is meant to reduce sweat from moistening the inside of the pocket.

A variance of .5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: Tommy is wearing a large in the pictures. As of late, he's been going up to large from Jackman even though he can wear a medium. The large generally fits better with looser-fitting pants so if you aren't wearing slim jeans, you can likely size up once. If you prefer a slimmer fit, you may want to stick with your true size. Tommy is 5'10," 175lbs with a 40" chest.
