The perfect red-black vintage plaid that just screams old-school woodsman.
Some shirts can truly give you a sense of time and place. In the case of this red-black check shirting from Japan, you're instantly reminded of the thoroughly classic, vintage woodsman styling. It's something about the combination of fiery reds with jet blacks that brings the old school sensation out. A flowing 5 ounce weight makes this one better suited to the modern world, as does the small check pattern. Paired with crisp, raw indigo selvedge this shirt is perfect.
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. Small gusset tabs adorn the bottom hem and 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 new it was right.
