A cousin fabric to the Japan Blue & Tan, one look at this shirt and it screams classic.

This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. When a shirting fabric nails pattern and color, it stands out. Of the hundreds of fabric we review frequently, this one immediately stood out. Reds and blues in plaid always make us think classic. Maybe New England vintage even. Where ever you place it, you always want one in your closet. The colors start with deep crimson and bright red. Great contrast comes from crisp white while cooling purple/navy a pastel blue round everything out. The real gem is how the pattern works all these colors in harmoniously. It's a small check base where each color is dominant vertically. The reds weigh most heavily, with the blues receiving their own channel while white is throughout to balance everything out. This fabric is lighter weight and super comfortable. This is simply one of those fabrics you can't wait to wear.

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.
