SHIRT CARE GUIDE

"We need to be looking at the lifespan of an item of clothing… As a conscious consumer you don’t want clothes that lose their fit after one wash, you want to invest in stylish wardrobe staples that are good to the planet and will last for years without a huge price tag."

– Pip, Founder of With Nothing Underneath.

One of our key values here at WNU is making you, our customers, the perfect shirt. From the very beginning we knew that everything we made had to be both timeless in its style whilst standing the test of time. It is not just about producing a more ethically made item, but also about ensuring that when looked after properly, that product will last a lifetime.

But how can you care for your shirts so you can wear them every day, time and time again? Please see below our different fabrics and how to care for them.

How to wash:

Machine wash on 30°C or below, on a regular cycle, using a liquid detergent, such as one of Kair’s Signature Clothing Washes, together with one of their Signature Fabric Conditioners.

 

How to dry:

Hang to air dry after a quick shake, and to ease the ironing effort, always hang on a hanger. Avoid direct sunlight if you can, unless the fabric is white, and never tumble dry.

 

How to iron:

Iron on a medium-high heat (we would recommend 150-200ºC) preferably while slightly damp, with the shirt turned inside out, for a crisp but smooth to touch finish. Release wrinkles by steaming.

Hemp


How to wash:

Machine wash on 30°C or below, on a gentle, low spin cycle, or hand wash. Wash with a gentle, protective detergent, such as Kair’s Wool, Silk and Delicates Wash, and for extra protection use a mesh laundry bag if machine washing.  

 

How to dry:

Air dry on a flat surface, or a hanger. Do not tumble dry as the heat and agitation can damage the fibres.

 

How to iron:

Linen and Seersucker: The relaxed, crumpled texture of washed linen means ironing is completely optional. If ironing, use a high heat (max 200ºC), and steam or use Finishing Spray to release lingering creases.

Hemp: The relaxed, crumpled texture of washed linen means ironing is completely optional. If ironing, use a high heat (max 200ºC).

How to wash:

WNU’s Silk shirts are very special and as such, we always recommend taking to your local dry cleaner.


How to fold:

In place of folding your silks, hang them on padded hangers. If you need to transport them, while travelling, for example, we recommend using a clothes cover.

 

Top Tips:

Avoid dry cleaning bills too frequently by spot-treat where necessary, and freshen up with some Finishing Spray to release any wrinkles.
