The best way to make an already superb palette of vintage blues and oranges even better is to use indigo dye. Japan knows exactly how it's done and this style is the perfect example.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. If you haven't noticed, we're a bit taken by plaid shirts that have a true vintage vibe. It always starts with just the right combination of colors. Ocean and deep navy blue contrast with brighter vintage orange and crisp white. It's almost an old-school Gulf Oil palette. The blues come from indigo dye which means they'll wear-in nicely over time. The feel of this shirt is flowing and open, coming from an unusually loose weave. Picture this with a worn in pair of denim or a super light chino and you have a great match.
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.
