American work-wear vibes. It's the Cone Indigo Twill paired with our new rugged style.
There are a few key things we like in a shirt for it take on a true vintage work wear feel. The first is indigo dye. It's old-world to the core and the iconic blue it brings out instantly sets the stage. The warp in this twill from Cone Mills has it. To really drive home that denim feel, this one has a crisp white weft. We also love great texture. A streaky grain really brings out contrast and gives the shirt great visual complexity. Finally we want a solid but wearable weight and this fabric's 6 ounce heft is perfect. This is an all-American work-wear look that's usable everyday.
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.
