#189 Japan Steel Blue

Campaign closed


There are some combinations of color that are so striking, you just need to be wearing them. The Japan Steel Blue is one of the finest examples we've seen recently.

This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. A palette of colors that hooks you and just won't let go is the best way to describe this shirting. Steel grey lays the base shade giving it a nicely muted and metalic start. On top of this comes dueling blues: wider navy channels run parallel to bright sky blues. Thin black and white lines round everything out. A classic plaid brings all these colors together in just the right amount to create a look that has just the right amount of ruggedness and formality. A lighter weight and gauzy feel make it supremely comfortable and a better pairing with denim is hard to find. This is one of those shirts that everyone in the office already has a place reserved on.

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.
