Judging by the characteristics of the cotton variety it is likely either an heirloom or natural hybrid. It is primarily the cheap shorter staple cottons that are GM’ed. Actually, some of the super soft hairy cottons used in high-end flannels are tree cotton. If it is tree cotton then there is zero chance it’s GM and an excellent chance it is completely organic.   Edit: Yep, looks like they use Tevis: http://www.teviz.pt/en Nice stuff...
Just found this company called Vermont Flannel. All their clothing and accessories are cut and sewn in the USA from the finest European flannel. From what I've read, the finest European flannel(specifically the flannel from Northern Portugal) is made from a special variety of cotton with nice super long hairy resilient fibers. Supposedly the characteristics of the cotton resists pilling, adds durability, and enhances softness. Some flannels become uncomfortable after just...
PuraKai just started a new campaign on Kickstarter. They are making new shirts and beanies made from recycled plastic bottles. Click Here to see the campaign. Here's a cool graphic:   This is a very legit company that makes nice clothing.  
Neil Young is very involved with this issue. Word on the street is that he won't buy GM clothing, strictly organic which is nice to be able to do. He also spreads much love for sustainability and local agriculture. His new album, The M0nsanto Years is really great and worth a listen.     By the way, here is something really cool. PuraKai is a company out of San Diego that makes organic clothing from extra long fiber cotton and now some other materials as well such as...
Hi themotochic! I would be careful with this one. People are getting burned by some of these start ups that over promise and under deliver... Perhaps even by the same people starting this brand. Try Iron Heart for motorcycle jeans; expensive as hell, but they are some of the best jeans money can buy. Extra long staple cotton, super duper heavy selvedge fabrics, softer than baby kittens, hard as nails, crazy nice details, hidden rivets and the like… The 555 cut is said to...
Those are White's Bounty Hunters in natural Chromexel.
technovox, you might want to check out Iron Heart's IHSH-33 and IHSH-76… JP prices are essentially same as Gustin per weight, but Iron Heart is constructed to a much higher standard and is all extra long staple cotton.   IHSH-76 stands on it's own:
John Smedley is a British company that has been making some of the worlds finest knitwear for over 200 years using the best quality natural fibers available. Here’s a great video about John Smedley’s manufacturing process:   Buying a John Smedley product is not just about purchasing a piece of fine knitwear, it’s an entire experience which is delightful and thoroughly engaging. For me the process went like this: visit the John Smedley website, do some research,...
Finally got one of these shirts  John Smedley’s Sea Island Cotton T-shirt Review: Fabric: The shirt is a nice loose knit fabric that a nice loft to it and outstanding breathability for the summer. I would characterize the fabric as mid-weight. – Cotton: Sea Island cotton is the #1 finest quality variety of cotton in the world. This (http://www.kaitoumen.co.jp/cont-en-02-02.html) explains the many unique qualities of sea island cotton.    ...
Love these Japanese made 1965 Archival Reissue PF Flyers. They feel much sturdier and better made than even my old American converse. The thick canvas and cotton laces are great and I really like how the toe slightly curves up. Tagged size 10 and fit about like a 10.5.
