Luxurious comfort from a fleece-like back with true heft, that's the rare sweet spot that these new shirts from Japan perfectly hit. These are the Brushed Back Herringbone shirts.
Some of our favorite fabrics from denim to knits manage to find a rare balance, that of comfort and heft. Think our Super Heavy denim or fleece hoodies. This new shirting manages that same delicate balance and look rich while doing it. The first think you notice are the deeply saturated colors, in this case navy. The surface is made much more complex by a herringbone weave. It adds subtle texture that you don't often get in shirting. As you put these shirts on you notice the real artistry devoted to this fabric. You notice the solid 7 ounce weight follow by the most luxuriously brushed back side which creates a true fleecy feel agains the skin. It's a pleasure to wear.
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.
