Not a crease. This is what the modern man needs: impeccable style that can take him from meetings and to car or even plane travel. This is what he needs from his outfit. And the result is the non-iron shirt or better, the Travel Shirt: a garment where you can actually feel the results of innovation and research. But not all shirts of this type are the same. How do we know the difference? Just pay attention to how it feels on the skin. A lot of these shirts feel stiff, especially at the front, around the placket, on the collar and cuffs and the seams around the arm. The reason lies in the process that makes the shirt no-iron: these shirts are stitched and then soaked, during the washing process, in a chemical compound, before being dried in a special oven that activates the chemical process that makes it immune to creasing, but at the same time, it also makes the shirt uncomfortable. The front placket (the part next to the fastening) and the arm holes are also completely coated in adhesives and therefore, made rigid and unnatural, to prevent creasing in this area.
There is another method that starts with the cotton fibre, the raw material. This is a gentler, more natural treatment and it is the one that Xacus has chosen for its non-iron shirt, Wrinkle Free. The secret is found in the cotton weave: an invisible network is inserted between the woven threads and it keeps the fibres stretched and extended, thanks to the heat of the wearer’s body. No part of the shirt has been bonded; only the most refined materials are used, such as Supima cotton, which undergoes 36 meticulous processes and exclusive finishes. This means that the garment is always soft and feels good on the skin. The special construction developed by Xacus includes a garment with fewer seams in order to avoid any tensions on fabric that tends always to return to an extended position without folds or creases. The garment is inspired by high-end tailored wear and is still complete with exclusive single-needle seams along the sides, as well as the removable collar stiffeners that are usually not found on cheaply made, non-iron garments. The fabrics preserve their bright, natural colours and polish, but also the versatility and practical wear required by the modern man.
Xacus non-iron shirts have an innovative core that runs along the fibres. To fully appreciate them, you need to do more than look, you need to wear them!
