A shirt that instantly takes you back in time in all the right ways. From color, to texture to pattern, this is a true throwback style masterfully woven in Japan. These are the 20 Year Twills.
There were always a few garments our parents wore that captivated our attention. It was usually because they possessed a certain style that we associated with them. They were usually worn hard for years and years to the point of near disintegration. They were softened by time and service and were seared into our memories from a young age. This is what inspired the 20 Year Twills. Color is what first draws you in - a perfectly paired combination of bright and muted colors - emerald and navy. Each a vintage call back. Next comes the almost chunky plaid patterns. They present a rustic and rugged layer to highlight the great color combinations. The feel and texture is equally impressive. A loosely woven twill creates a flowing fabric that feels as if it's been worn for years. There is even subtle surface pilling, lending additional texture and aged character. These are simply special shirts that bring an earlier memory up to today's standards.
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.
