The 50/50 Cotton/Polyester Blend is butter-soft. Made from manual old-school looms in the good ol' U.S. of A., the texture of the weaving and weight really speak to the craftsmanship of the shirt. Looking at the blind stitching at the hem, you'd think each shirt was hand sewn; a very subtle detail that is worth the extra attention. The cut at the waist of the shirt is neither trim/athletic nor boxy. It's slightly tailored, but still wearable for everyone. The same goes for the cut of the arms. Regardless of which Popeye you are (pre- or post- spinach), you'll like the cut of the sleeves.
