Rare Japanese Selvedge Sashiko fabric perfection paired with our workshirt style makes for a truly special garment. Meet the Sashiko Selvedge Workshirt.
We recently ran our first Sashiko style in a 5 pocket. We knew we were just scratching the surface of this historically significant technique. Now we have another absolute stunner. The inspiration for this style is the traditional Sashiko sewing style. Used as a functional sewing technique for repairs and for decorative effects, Sashiko is respected for its handmade style, prominent stitching and patterning effects. This version starts with a saturated and vibrant medium indigo blue base. A Dobby weave is deployed to recreate the prominent Sashiko stitch style. It takes the form of a patchwork of small cross over stitches and grids in tonal dark indigo. All this detail lends tremendous texture and depth to the fabric that you rarely find. The complexity comes together wonderfully. Even more special is the selvedge composition. This will be one of your most unique workshirts.
Several construction details define our workshirt. The first is ample triple needlework with a classic chain stitch runoff. Triple needle is a specialized stitch not found on standard button downs and that serves as the heart of any good work shirt. Ours gets triple need flat felled yoke and side seams with chain stitched bottoms. We also allow the side seam chain stitch to “run off” the end giving you three chain stitch ends on each side. We bar tack to ensure the runoff can’t compromise the security of the side seam. The second detail is double chest pockets. We keep ours a bit cleaner, without flaps, but use button closures and double bar tacks in each corner for added strength. The left chest pocket gets the addition of a small pen slot. The third detail is the side hem gussets. It’s a small functional element and looks absolutely great. On our selvedge styles, we incorporate the selvedge on the bottom. Finally, we love the chin strap. Ours is small enough to be tasteful while still reminding you of the workwear roots of the garment. We created new custom Corozo buttons specifically for our work shirts. They’re a deep navy shade with a slightly domed top and two holes for securing. Overall, this is one of our most intricately constructed garments and one of the most costly to produce.
Our workshirts will be available in our Classic and Slim fits. The main differences in details between our workshirts and our other shirting come down to construction - no back box pleat, and differently shaped side scoops. The Slim fit has a more tailored body as compared to our Classic fit. Chest and waist come in to provide a more fitted option. Details are in our fit guide now.
