Cut Loose offers casual clothing that’s sewn and dyed to order in San Francisco. They're known for their fabrics, flattering fit, and colors. Born as a t-shirt and draw-string pant street-vending enterprise on San Francisco's Fisherman’s Wharf in the 1970s, the company has grown extensively over the years but maintains an environmental footprint befitting its origins.
Still made in San Francisco, Cut Loose uses dyes that are non-toxic, and they neutralize their waste water so the salt doesn’t corrode the city’s pipes. Fabric tests are repurposed--into scarves, napkins, market bags, even scrunchies--and sold at their factory store. Garments are shipped without hangers or plastic bags, using recycled packaging materials, and even their labeling is minimalist.
Cut Loose garments are a keystone of the Belle Starr ethos and look--casual, quality, earth-friendly clothes that will remain in your wardrobe for years to come. This 3/4-sleeve shirt has a boat neck with top-seam inserts, to narrow the opening, and a slight aline cut for a flattering fit. The cross-hatch linen-cotton blend will be comfortable in warm weather but wrinkle a bit less than linen alone.

Cut Loose clothes skim the body for a fluid silhouette. When a Cut Loose garment “fits,” it simultaneously flatters the figure and allows room to really move. Customers often wear their typical size in more fitted items (those with darts or body-hugging fabrics or a size smaller in less-structured items with “flowy” fabric.
