An absolute explosion of neps pair with an ultra soft brushed twill base and earthy colors to make classic shirt with huge character. Meet the Brushed Nep Twills.
These start with a plush 6 ounce twill base that's heavily brushed to a fuzzy, soft finish. The feel is perfect to enjoy year-round. The base color is a soft and earthy Coffee brown. It's a color that stands out without being loud. Then, things get absolutely over the top cool in the form of neps dotting the surface at random creating an absolute tapestry of color and texture. Each shirt is different, making these even more special. You rarely find shirting with this level of character and texture. Japan nailed it.
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 knew it was right.
