Shirts & blouses.


In the ordinary working life, shirts and blouses for corporate wear and workwear are mostly made with easy-iron and non-creasing finishes. This requires the seams to be extra smooth and even. These garments come under stress during work and then again during professional laundering and ironing, especially the collars, cuffs and button panels. AMANN has found individual and economically attractive solutions for this, too.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation

As a universal sewing thread for shirts we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging. Depending on the shirt fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • for the finest fabrics and non-iron qualities sabac 150 or Serafil 120/2
  • for embroidering logos ISACORD, ISAMET 40 and Serafil 200/2
