This is one of our favorite jacquards of all time. If you haven't had a chance to snag one of these, now's your time.
This style uses cotton cloth Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC. Deeply saturated fabrics often have trouble bringing out surface detail and texture. Cone managed to create a super saturated indigo shirting that also has tremendous surface interest. We're impressed. This one starts with an absolutely inky blue base shade. It's as dark as we've run to date and gives this fabric a very rich base. The jacquard weave really takes it to a new level. Tiny specks are woven into the surface in vertical lines at opposing angles. The surface almost looks like armor plating, but it's all very subtle. Another win from Cone Mills that we'll be wearing all the time.
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.
