KNOW YOUR BASICS: CORE TOPS

Within our Core styles, our design team refers to the garments in various ways. They think about the garments by their way of construction: hand-sewn by our artisans who work out of their homes or machine-sewn by the Bldg. 14 team who works at The Factory.

Or they associate them by fabric type: our signature medium-weight jersey, a stretchy rib-knit, or a flowy lightweight jersey—all made from organic cotton.

To help you get acquainted with our current Core offerings, we’ve chosen to organize our Core tops by their fit—to help you identify a style whose shape and overall design you love. Look for special details in each, like lightweight trims or utilitarian pockets.

If you are looking for a relaxed fit:

The Easy group is our series of lightweight tops made with a soft and flowy organic cotton jersey fabric. The Easy Scoop offers a curved, flattering neckline while the rest of the styles have a comfortable and loose turtleneck. Both tunics feature in-seam pockets and Natalie’s Tunic is made from stretchy rib-knit fabric.

If you want something more form-fitting:

With varying necklines, The Scoop and Rib Crew have the same body fit and are made from stretchy rib-knit fabric with lightweight trims. You can find The Scoop in three sleeve lengths.

The Shell is hand-sewn in classic Alabama Chanin style and medium-weight jersey and available in a crew or V-neck line with a fitted waist. The Soft Knit Tank is from our Leisure collection, has a slim fit, and makes a great layering piece.
