The super soft Brushed cotton material is the ultimate cosy winter piece. With a pocket and tortoiseshell button detail, wear tucked into your jeans or loose over a t-shirt.
INTRODUCTION The softest material and the perfect, relaxed fit makes The Brushed collection one of WNU’s most comfortable shirts and the ultimate cosy piece to have in the colder seasons. These come in the Boyfriend style, which is slightly oversized, sitting away from the body and just off the shoulders, creating a sumptuously comfortable shirt for everyday wear. The Brushed cotton shirt was created to be easy to throw on with or without thought, as a shirt to be worn every day. To ensure its versatility, we kept the elements of men’s tailoring to elevate the shirt away from exclusively being casualwear and into something that could also be dressed up or confidently worn on zoom calls.
MATERIAL What is Brushed cotton? It is still 100% organic cotton, but it refers to a process that occurs to the cotton. The material undergoes a ‘brushing’, where fine metal brushes carefully rub the fabric to produce fine fibres from the woven yarns, creating extra softness on the surface of the fabric. To make ours Brushed collection, we have brushed both sided of the shirt to keep you extra cosy and ensure the fabric is super soft against the skin. Our blog post Meet The Materials also talks about how we create the brushed cotton fabric for our Boyfriend shirts.

SOURCING Both of the factories that WNU use, for the weaving of the fabric and the creating of the shirts, are located near to each other in a town in Portugal. They were both chosen as following our auditing process they proved to hold the highest standard of ethical working standards. Our collections are all hand sewn together with scrupulous detail, so you know each shirt has personally been made with love (our labels don’t lie!). The shirts are then transported to our warehouse in Kent where our team makes sure every customer receives their order.
STYLING Autumn and Winter weather go hand in hand with the Brushed shirts. Think country walks in the fresh morning air, with the Brushed layered under a coat and your jeans tucked into long boots. Or at home, cosied up in front of the fire with some cashmere socks and a book in one hand. If you want to dress it up – winter is party season after all – simply tuck the brushed into a pair of leather pants and slip on some heeled boots. Don’t pack it away in Summer though! This shirt is perfect to slip on over your dress in those cool summer evenings, or, throw on top of a plain white tee and pair of jeans for the perfect September transitional outfit.
