We love our slubby shirting material, but we usually find it only in great chambrays. The Slub Plaid is a rare twill with amazing texture and pattern.
This style uses cotton twill cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Textured shirting is some of our favorite and hardest to find. Chambray is where we expect it, so when we found a pattered twill like this one we jumped on it. This one starts with a great color palette and pattern. A muted, faded navy blue base starts it off with a vintage look. On top of that base is a complex plaid pattern with both wide and narrow channels in crisp white. Very thin red lines give it just a hint of additional color. The slubiness takes it all to the next level. Intense grain is present throughout the surface which adds great texture. It's an amazing package wrapped in a fabric that feels extra soft. This is simply a special shirt.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. The length hits just right so it looks great always. Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style. A traditional button down collar is secured with two side buttons and one back and has a nice soft roll.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. A finely folded locker loop sits over a box pleat on the back yoke. 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. An angular chest pocket completes the front. Our cuffs are double button with rounded corners.
