Big weight ticking stripes straight from Japan. This rugged style combines a vintage workwear look with a composition you can break-in and evolve over time. We're offering a superb value to round out the package.
Many of the shirts we offer have luxuriously soft structures right on day one. Those are great to have in your collection. However, sometimes we like a shirting style you can put some work into, not unlike a great raw selvedge denim. This ticking stripe from Japan offers you exactly that opportunity. It starts with a slightly starched, 9 ounce base. This is serious heft for a shirt fabric. You can see the nice creasing that forms as you wear it and move. It will soften up with time and mold to your body. Next comes a vintage, thin white ticking stripe with a contrasting base color. This version has a unique black and olive yarn that creates a very unique green shadow effect.
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.
