To be honest, the Instagram page of Andamen Life caught my attention at first. Apart from being perfectly aesthetic, I was pleased to open their posts and see some comforting earthy tones of apparels. In short, they define themselves as ‘Modern India|Contemporary Styling| Affordable Luxury’. Would it be partial to say that I was instantly sold?
As I wore the tee, the quality of the unadulterated 100% certified Supima cotton was understood. According to the brand, ‘This tee is spun into a 50’s yarn – two times finer than a regular tee.’ More about the tee is mentioned at the end of this post. The lightness of the Shacket did not stop it from providing me warmth in the cold december mornings of Jaipur, Rajasthan. According to the brand, ‘The shackets have the design aesthetic of an overshirt with the right amount of quilting that gives it the warmth and comfort of a jacket.’ In other words, ‘It is the perfect overlayer to bridge the gap between summer and winter’.
About the tee: Presenting a fabric so soft, luxurious and brilliant you won’t believe it doesn’t have silk. Unadulterated 100% certified Supima cotton. Spun into a 50’s yarn – two times finer than a regular tee. And constructed into a double knit rib – the smoothest construction possible in a knit fabric. To finish, the final fabric gets double dipped in bio enzymes and topped with a silicon softener, achieving an ultra fine hand. It’s pure luxury, outside and in.
About the Shacket: We’ve created our shackets to have the design aesthetic of an overshirt shirt with the right amount of quilting that gives it the warmth and comfort of a jacket. It is the perfect overlayer to bridge the gap between summer and winter.
The Andamen shackets are constructed from luxuriously soft, natural fibers so that they remain breathable and very, very snug.
