Get ready for summer with our TRAVELER knit shirts.
Knitted fabrics are elastic and soft.
Both our 46-gauge knits and pique knits are perfect in
hot weather because of their quick-drying properties.
Wear casually untied, or tied up under a jacket for a more formal look.
These knit shirts use very fine cotton-polyester thread for a light fabric.
By blending long-fiber polyester and short-fiber cotton,
the final fabric has the quick-absorbing, glossy properties of cotton,
as well as the fast-drying and lightweight properties of polyester.
Feel dry and comfortable until the day ends.
The uneven surface of the pique knits (often used for polo shirts)
means that the fabric doesn’t stick to the skin.
The pique weave allows skin to breathe so that it is perfect for hot days.
This year, a first for Kamakura Shirts,
a selection of our knit shirts use a cotton-polyester blend.
We also recommend our 100% cotton, Ice Twist range for the ultimate cool dry touch.
Our Knit shirts have been designed to be effortlessly comfortable, whilst boasting a beautiful appearance. Under the guidance of a world-famous pattern-maker, many small adjustments have been made. In order to allow more flexibility in the chest and waist, the front panel has been made larger and the back panel smaller.
Our knit shirts do not require specific care. All you need to do is to place in a laundry net and wash at home. Hang to dry using a clothing hanger and the fabric will need almost no ironing when dry.
As the shirts are made using elastic knitted fabric, you will not notice creases usually found on a cotton dress shirt. Once you arrive at your destination, all you need to do is spray the shirt with some water and hang to dry. These knit shirts won’t leave you embarrassingly wrinkled up even after a long journey.
Choosing nothing but the best, we have carefully selected knitters of the highest expertise in Japan. We have chosen the perfect fabric for each season with the right gauge and right thickness.
