True indigo dye is perfectly showcased by a tonal grid pattern in this extra soft flannel from Japan.
Indigo dye shirting is a rare find. To us, Japan is the master of this form and this style is a great example. When you use such a special dye, it's best to let it shine. An absolutely inky dark indigo base is the perfect start. It's the type of blue that you can only get from real indigo. Laid on top of the base is a thin tonal grid pattern. It's a nice compliment and we love how it keeps everything in the blue palette. You couldn't as for a loftier or softer finish to this flannel. It has a volume and airiness that makes it a true joy to wear. Special shirting done Japan style.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
