Retro style plaids with true character. From the perfectly soft feel, to the big slub yarns to the spot on colors. These are the Retro Slub Plaids.
Shirting with real presence can be hard to find, but we know it when we see it and touch it. This fabric hits all the marks. It starts with soft yarn and a loose weave to create a sense of having worn these shirts well for years. That soft yarn is extra-slubby, and on full display as it adds an organically irregular, vintage look. Completing the throwback style is a big, chunky plaid pattern which brings together retro color combinations. Pick your favorite selvedge denim, boots and you have the perfect shirting match.
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.
