Threadsmiths is a company based out of Melborne, Australia which has developed a patented hydrophobic nanotechnology application that repels water and dirt. Early last year, we featured an article on their first product, the Cavalier T-Shirt. Since then, they’ve developed an addition to their product line, the Cavalier Dress Shirt, and sent SSD one for review.
The Cavalier Dress Shirt is a premium 100% white cotton dress shirt complete with mother of pearl buttons, and is treated with Threadsmiths patented hydrophobic nanotechnology application. Like the Cavalier T-Shirt, it comes in a fairly slim fit, so ordering a size up is recommended.
Also like the Cavalier t-shirt, the Cavalier Dress Shirt is great at repelling virtually any water-based substances. Seen above, we’ve covered the shirt in water, juice, and soy sauce. As a reminder, the coating does not work well against oil-based liquids.
The amount of fluid we covered the shirt in is extreme, and also required a couple of minutes in a hot shower to completely remove. Considering the amount of colored fluid that was on the shirt, that’s still pretty impressive, especially since a regular white dress shirt would be all but ruined by that point. Typically, an amount of water equivalent to a large bottle is all that is needed to remove a spill.
The benefit of a hydrophobic and stain-resistant white dress shirt speaks for itself, and we’re eager to see what Threadsmiths will be offering next. The Cavalier Dress Shirt is currently available in White, sizes XS-XXXL. Threadsmiths also offers the Cavalier T-Shirt in White, Grey, and Black for men and women.
