All the right details in a denim from Japan that can work in the warm weather and go all the way through winter. It's the perfect match for our authentic Workshirt style. The value makes it tough to pass on. The Japan Feather Denim Workshirt.
We like the garments we invest in to get a lot of use. Usable in warm weather. Good in the office. Nice to go out in. A style that works in the colder months too. To hit that sweet spot you need all the right details in place. This denim from Japan does that. A 6.5 ounce weight means serious wearability in warm weather and comfort on day one. The fine yarns reveal a subtle grain that allows the color-on-white composition to show through. You get the classic denim appearance, with a level if refinement from the smooth, tighter surface. The colors are rich, which enable nice versatility. The touch of stretch means even more comfort. It's all here.
There are a number of construction details that define our workshirt. The first is ample triple needle work with a classic chain stitch runoff. Triple needle is a specialized stitch not found on a standard button downs and that serves as the heart of any good work shirt. Ours gets triple need flat felled yoke and side seams with chain stitched bottoms. We also allow the side seam chain stitch to “runoff” the end giving you three chain stitch ends on each side. We bar tack to ensure the runoff can’t compromise the security of the side seam. The second detail is double chest pockets. We keep ours a bit cleaner, without flaps, but use button closures and double bar tacks in each corner for added strength. The left chest pocket gets the addition of a small pen slot. The third detail is side hem gussets. It’s a small functional element and looks absolutely great. On our selvedge styles we incorporate the selvedge on the bottom. Finally, we love the chin strap. Ours is small enough to be tasteful while still reminding you of the work wear roots of the garment. We created new custom Corozo buttons specifically for our work shirts. Overall, this is one of our most intricately constructed garments and one of the most costly to produce.
Our workshirts will be available in our Classic and Slim fits. The main differences in details between our workshirts and our other shirting come down to construction - no back box pleat, and differently shaped side scoops. The Slim fit has a more tailored body as compared to our Classic fit. Chest and waist come in to provide a more fitted option. Details are in our fit guide now.
