Big weight perfectly balanced by a flowing loose weave and bold vintage colors - these are the all new Japan Rustic Twills.
Japan has a devotion to honoring historic American icons. Selvedge denim is the most obvious example, but its craftsmanship and ability to capture vintage American styling extends to shirting fabric as well. The Rustic Twills are a perfect showcase. Each starts with a rugged 8 ounce base. This weight has become our go-to when we want a shirt with true substance that's still highly wearable. The big weight captures a rugged vibe of earlier days. The counter balance to the weight is a loose, open weave twill. This weave imparts a wonderful level of softness and movement that makes these shirts easy to wear and fit well. The supple big yarns further enhance comfort. Finally, the classic plaid and bold retro color palette is spot on - this version uses an earthy mustard brown combination. Pair these with raw denim and you're good to go.
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.
