Some palettes just scream vintage. This tonal blue and white shirting from Japan did just that and our Rugged style makes for the perfect companion.
The use of color is what instantly drew us to this shirt. The soft tonal blue squares define the block plaid pattern. Surrounding the blues is a crisp white make everything lively. It looks like a pattern and color that could stand the test of time for generations. The slightly more casual detailing on our Rugged style serves as a nice contrast to the lighter weight, classically woven fabric.
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.
