We certainly enjoy our checked shirts, but now it's time to literally go big. This is our first buffalo check shirt and we're starting with a classic.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Checked shirts just work. We can't get enough of them. One area of this style we haven't ventured into before is the extra large check. Many people call it a buffalo check, but whatever name you give it, we like it. This version takes on a monster gingham look. Extra dark navy checks define the color, while crisp white provides nice contrast to brighten the overall look up. The color palette is a great denim companion and the lighter weight makes it ready for spring and summer. It's time to start your large check collection.
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.
