A rare example from the master in Japan. A functional weave for toughness made truly rare with the addition of indigo dye. It's just a work of fabric art. It starts with ripstop construction - purpose built to resist tearing by incorporating reinforced threads into the weave in a grid pattern. You see that subtle grid in this fabric and know it's ready to do it's job. It also lends a textured pattern and slightly modern look to the shirt. The beautiful cobalt indigo dye makes this shirt. Stunning color, subtle texture with real function.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. The front placket is also pleated, made the right way, using a true two piece construction. The feel is more substantial and the effort higher, but it's the right way. A rounded chest pocket completes the front.
