Classic patterns, equal parts wool and cotton, and a special dusty yellow cast make for a timeless style made special. These are the Antique Cast Shirts.
While we may like the classics, we prefer them to be made just slightly better and fresh. That's the highlight of these new styles. The patterns are timeless, in this case, a houndstooth. Instantly recognizable, it never goes out of style. The freshness comes in composition and color. Equal parts wool and cotton yield the perfectly blend of wearability and texture. Cotton lends comfort, wool lends a subtle fibrous texture for a rugged vibe. Color puts these over the top. Darks are contrasted with lights, but instead of classic white, you get a unique dusty yellow natural. The results is a very cool antique cast. Classics updated and improved.
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.
