If you want to stock up on timeless, year-round shirting, this is the one for you. A dark navy shade, larger gingham pattern all wrapped up in a highly wearable weight make this a true winner.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The beauty of gingham is in both the contrast of color and the large variety of check size you can find. Get them both right and you have a great shirt. This style starts with an incredibly dark navy shade, likely the darkest we've seen. The contrast between this navy and crisp white make for a good balance of shades and the color combination is born to go with denim. This is also the largest check size we've run (1/2"), which gives the style a slightly bolder appearance. Add in a lighter weight and you have an extremely comfortable garment. This is the type of shirt you want to fill your closet with.
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.
