Vintage corduroy with a twist. These are the Bias Corduroy Rugged Shirts.
We've come to appreciate the retro character and iconic look of corduroy. The depth and texture it yields is a great complement to any 5 pocket or shirt. It adds interest without being over bearing. Here, one of our favorite mills in Japan took a new approach on the style. Deploying a special dobby weave, it created a bias corduroy. The wale is rotated 45 degrees creating a unique diagonal, chunky twill appearance with great texture. The base is a soft 7 once cotton. Paired with our Rugged shirt style you have the perfect raw denim companion.
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.
