Picture the perfect sunset over the ocean: the light fading, the colors rich and varied but starting to fade. This is what we see in this amazing soft, summer plaid from Japan.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This fabric uses the perfect palette of colors to paint a truly beautiful picture. Rusty red, corn yellow, purple tinged navy and soft cream come together in just the right proportions. Each takes on a well worn, faded patina. They cross each other in channels in a classic plaid pattern. The way the colors harmonize reminds us of that rare sight you see when the sun is setting and you see palette of colors you didn't think was possible to see. Add in a super gauzy feel and light weight and you just might be wearing this shirt while you're watching this sunset. This run of vintage plaids is causing us to clear out our closet space, they're just that nice.
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.
