Inspired by vintage saddle blanket patterns, full of rich earth tones and supremely soft - these are the new Japan Saddle Blanket Jacquards.
Boldly patterned shirts require great execution or they can end up being a bit too wild for our taste. Today Japan shows us how to do it the right way. This mill starts with a great inspiration in the form of vintage saddle blankets. With this in mind, it uses a jacquard weave to embed a bold horizontal pattern into the fabric as opposed to just a surface level print. The detail and intricacy is high, showcasing the beauty of the jacquard technique. Wide channels, thin dotted lines, retro to the core. Base colors are earthy and rich, this version in a slightly red-tinged brown (redwood). Pops of color add to the vintage look and brighten up the shirt. Finally, each is heavily brushed for supreme comfort. The perfect companion for your favorite denim.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
Buttons downs that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced at $175 to $300. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
