OLOF MK-1C - Long Outer Shirt
The Olof design has its origin in the timeless Swedish night shirt, but has been completely re-thought in fit, detailing and fabric qualities, making it a lot more refined. It’s used as home wear, summer wear, vacation wear or simply as a long shirt over pants with a nice knitted sweater or a jacket.
The MK-1C really takes the tradition of an around-the-clock shirt to heart. Like the farmers and counts that used to simply get out of bed and tuck their night shirt into their pants and get on with the day. As we do not agree with using the very same shirt to sleep/lounge in as wearing out we have developed this shorter version, which is excellent to wear with trousers or jeans, still maintaining a nod to the long nightshirt.
Our designs are completed with renowned Swedish pattern makers and all our samples are created by our preferred seamstresses in Stockholm, also known for making custom clothing for the Royal Swedish Opera.
Packaging and quality control on each individual garment happens at our facilities in Stockholm. The boxes are made by hand by Mr Gunnar of Norrmalms Kartongfabrik (EST. 1916)
The Olof MK-1AB is named after the first Millkeeper on record at Boda Mill in Sweden, where he lived and worked 1680-1710.
The high-quality cotton is an 80-count 78gsm2 true melange fabric, woven from 3 different yarns of very thin long-cotton fibers. Each Melange yarn is un-evenly dyed to give the fabric its understated variation and elegance.
FIT, SIZING & FEATURES.
It has a simple straight cut that is loose enough to feel comfortable but slim enough to look elegant and fitted. The pocket is especially designed to fit your reading glasses, no phones. Our sizes generally follow established S, M, L, XL traditions, but please visit our size guide for more exact help.
The fabric loves to be ironed, over and over, and brings it back to its out-of-the-box feel. We prefer washing hand-wash (machine wash) at 30 degrees to keep the garment fresh. For drying we recommend drying flat or hanging.
We usually try to ship the next business day after order has been placed. So it should only be a matter of days before you have your shirt in hand, obviously a little dependent on where you are in the world.
