The Tropo has been part of our line for over 10 years as it has a devoted following that love the comfort, ease of care, and the smooth modern look it provides; however, it is not as durable as our other fabrics due to surface pilling. The Tropo is paired with open pockets.
Eyelets are button holes positioned to make your pin placement more consistent and to eliminate damage to the surrounding fabric.
Tailored Torso - Customized shirts are not eligible for returns or exchanges. When Tailored Torso is selected, we will, based on your selection, remove 1 to 3 inches on the round. We begin with zero change at the armpit and taper it down from there to the hem. This means if you take out 1 inch (2.2cm) it is the equivalent of pinching off ¼” from each side. Be careful to give yourself some ease. Fitting it all the way down to your body is not generally a good look even for the die hard fitness crowd.
