After seeing a photo of Steve McQueen at a car race wearing a similar shirt, we fell in love. The philosophy behind the 'Sin City' shirt is: total rebellion.
The name "Sin City" refers to Las Vegas, the city of sin.

Linen is a cellulosic fibre derived from the stem of the flax plant. Flax fibres are much stronger and shinier than other textile fibres, producing fresh and absorbent fabrics.
Flax fibres are considered raffia fibres. Raffia fibres are fibres collected from the phloem or inner bark of the plant. Fabrics made from raffia fibres are generally very strong and durable fabrics. Other fabrics made from raffia fibres are hemp and ramié (ramie).
Linen fibre has a high tensile strength and elongation, is brighter and silkier than other natural textile fibres, and is a hygroscopic fabric, i.e. it tends to absorb and release moisture very well.
Linen wrinkles easily and it is precisely because of this characteristic that the fabric and the look acquire a touch of refined ease.
Finally, it is an organic fabric by nature, and therefore environmentally friendly.
It is an ideal fabric for hot summer days, but to avoid damaging it in the washing machine, it should be washed at a maximum temperature of 60° for whites and no more than 40° for colours.
