Wilson is a T-shirt made by the Swedish brand Indigofera. It is inspired by the 50's and the time after the war when a pocket on the t-shirt showed that it was now socially accepted to just wear a t-shirt, a garment that strictly had been worn as an undershirt up until then. It is made from Supima cotton in a fabric that is thick, yet feels cool to the touch due to the long cotton fibres used.
Supima cotton is a word comprised of "superior" and "Pima". Pima is a variety of cotton that has extra long fibers, and Supima is a non-profit organization from the US who promote North American grown cotton.
So what does extra long cotton fibers do to the finished product? In order to make a fabric the cotton fibers are first spun, causing them to twist around each other to form a thread and the longer fibers that are used, the stronger the thread is. A cotton fiber that is longer than the industry average fibre is the basic and most important ingredient in the creation of a long-lasting garment, as it replicates the raw material used to make garments before fast fashion was a thing.
