The quality of the fabrics used: the strength of Opalona shirts
The Opalona shirts are the result of original styling, a strict choosing of fabrics and careful design. The styling was done in Paris, fabrics, buttons, labels and garment are made exclusively in Europe.
It is on the selection of raw materials used for making shirts qu’Opalona shows his true skill. In addition to cutting and other details that characterize a shirt is the quality of the fabric that makes the beauty of a shirt. Therefore, Opalona uses only high quality fabrics, easy to board, bringing comfort and held over the washes. The vast majority of fabrics used by Opalona is 100% cotton, some models are made of linen or cotton stretch (80% cotton, 16% polyamide and elastane).
All cotton fabrics are selected by Opalona double twisted and titration of 80, 100 or 120 in the warp and weft thereby imparting high quality to the fabric. The two-ply, as opposed to merely devious means 2 son of cotton (instead of one) are twisted before weaving for strength, density and flexibility. This type of weaving makes the shirt more resistant over the washings and pressings.
The titration of the wire is a measure for assessing the fineness of the yarn used to make the fabric. The higher it is, the more the fabric is thin, light, compact and durable.

Test & Opinion
When I found the shirt, I was really surprised by the quality! Personally, I find it ridiculous to pay a crazy price shirt claiming that the quality is better … For € 45, you have a fitted shirt 100% cotonen twill fabric, no less! FYI, the twill is distinguished by fine diagonal lines. It is a flexible fabric, slightly silky and slightly thicker, which makes ironing easier 😉 Note the meticulous finishing with round buttons, cuffs “Musketeers” and a spread collar with two buttons. Otherwise, the shirt falls perfectly thanks to its slim fit either at the neck, shoulders and sleeves lengths. A beautiful discovery that deserved to look above 🙂
