This rare plaid from Japan uses a color removal technique to create a uniquely weathered appearance. We've never seen shirting quite like this before.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. A lot of shirting material comes through our office, but this style was a first. The basics: it's a large check pattern twill weave fabric. The twill weave adds nice interest to the surface and pattern. The feel is incredibly flowing and supple. A deep navy is contrasted by bright canary yellow. If it stopped there we'd already love it. The rare part is the the finish. A discharge printing techniques serves as a unique weathering tool. It removes color and makes the entire surface look faded and distressed in a very natural way. This is a technique we've never seen applied to a traditional twill in quite this way and it's winner. The overall look is one of a shirt you've worn and worn hard for years. This is a must get 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.
