Bugatchi launches Men’s white fashion dress shirts

New for the 2008-09 Fall/Winter season, Bugatchi launched several white cotton fashion dress shirts, priced from $105. Each shirt has a different feel and a different fashion look. CEOgolfshop.com has selected three of them to sell in the online store. All are long sleeve and each has a different hand feel.

The Bugatchi long sleeve fashion dress shirt AS3223L44 has enough style you can look great without a jacket. The fabric has a 3-dimensional textured diamond pattern and is made with 99% cotton, 1% elastine, with a regular soft collar. The AS3221L42 100% cotton Bugatchi long sleeve shirt with spread collar uses stitching in a paisley pattern to create it’s design effect. The pattern appears white or shimmery (inverse) depending on how the light hits it. The Bugatchi fancy dress shirt AS3225L44 is made with 100% cotton. The fabric uses squares in a symmetrical fashion pattern that varies in appearance from grey to white with lighting. The fabric is somewhat shimmery and has a satin like feel. It has a hidden button down collar.

What is Tencel? How does it compare to other Bugatchi fabrics?

TENCEL® is Lenzing Fibers’ brand name for lyocell. A major break-through was made with the development of the unique nanofibril structure of this fiber. TENCEL®, made from wood pulp cellulose, offers a unique combination of the most desirable properties of man made and natural fibers: soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool and as absorbent as cotton. Quite simply a “break-through” fiber.

The Bugatchi Tencel shirt introduced for the Fall/Winter 2008- 2009 season feels at least as soft as their high modal rayon content shirts, maybe even softer. It’s definitely a lightweight fabric. There is some stretchiness to the shirt, but minimal.

Lenzing calls Tencel® environmentally friendly and a good choice for people with sensitive skin. However, process of dying the fabric may include treatments with chemicals that could affect your skin. CEOgolfshop has never received any negative customer feedback about any Bugatchi shirts. In fact, most customers rave about how the shirts are the best they have ever worn,

Tencel garments are often recommended as good for travel because they pack light and retain their shape. Many Tencel® pieces are machine washable; though you should follow the label’s instructions for specific wear. If washed in cold water, Tencel® garments shrink about 3% with the first washing, but then won’t shrink in future washes. Tencel® also dries quickly, so drip-drying it may not take long.

The Tencel fabric compares favorably to silk shirts as well. Most people like silk for the hand feel. The Tencel shirts have a superb hand feel, but also are easier to care for and probably hold their shape better in varying weather, especially high humidity.

When will silk shirts be in stock?

We’ve had problems getting adequate inventory of quality silk shirts for all 2008. Our retail buyers should always advance order adequate stock for their operations- four months advance is standard.

For our consumer buyers, I anticipate limited stock becoming available from September to December. Your best option is to sign up for our email list. We’ll certainly be sending out a notice as soon as we have it available.

As an alternative, I highly recommend stock # 1508. Our customers love this shirt which is in stock in plenty of colors and sizes, and the fabric is one of the nicest you’ll ever wear. No exaggeration!
