Truly luscious is the only way to describe this indigo dyed fabric from Japan.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. There is no shortage of great plaids, but some stand out. The colors on this version are so stunning we had no choice but to show you. It starts with dye. This a rare shirting that uses indigo dye which means it will age beautifully over time. That dye is put to amazing use to develop a tonal blue palette. Large intensely deep navy is beautifully contrasted by lighter royal blue, both from indigo dye. These colors are brought together in a window pane style plade with the navy forming the base and the royal defining the pattern. There are nice variations in channel thickness from extra thin to thick. A lighther weight and supple hand round it out. This is the type of shirting you just don't find anywhere else.
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.
