Every season Tender Co. deliver us meticulously crafted garments combined with unique natural dyes. This season, the British label utilises two specific colours Prussian Blue, and Yellow Ochre. Prussian Blue is an indigo-like dark blue pigment traditionally used in paints, and blueprints of yesteryear, and even an antidote for heavy metal poisoning. Yellow Ochre is a heavily hydrated iron oxide natural earth pigment, when used as a dye gives us a rich mustard powder finish to the garments.
The Type 944 Lined Folded Morning Coat comes over-dyed in Prussian Blue. Crafted in England each jacket is cut from cotton canvas, woven on an ecru warp with a twisted red, white and blue weft. The body of the jacket is fully lined with a Loomstate ecru wool blanket material.
The Type 440 folded pocket shirt comes to us in both Prussian Blue, and Yellow Ochre dyed wool-cotton barber stripe. Crafted in England from a woven cotton calico with tonal weft stripes of ecru wool that is inspired by traditional barber poles. The front panels of the shirt are folded back to form wide pockets curved and bound with custom-made ecru cotton bias binding, and then riveted. Perfectly paired off with the Type 944 Coat.
The subtle stripes continue with a trio of Yarn Striped Reverse Terry Socks. Coming to us in a natural un-dyed Ecru, and over-dyed Prussian Blue, and Yellow Ochre. In all honesty, the best socks you’ll ever slide your feet into, the Type 007 socks feature a tonally striped rib shaft knitted from ecru cotton, and ecru mohair yarns, core-spun with nylon for durability.
