Heavy, supremely soft twill from Japan is tough to beat. Add in a vintage color palette and brushed back for an amazing feel and it's that much better.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. When we find shirting fabric that is both substantial and incredible supple, we know it's going to sew to an amazing shirt. This style has it all. It starts with truly vintage appearance. It's slightly faded reds, royal blues, whites and washed out yellow that give it a decades old look that we love. At 7 ounces, you could imagine this fabric being bulky on, but it's just the oppposite. A loose twill weavy give it flowing drape and brushed back makes it intensely soft. This is substantial shirting with all the details dialed in perfectly.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. The length hits just right so it looks great always. Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style. A traditional button down collar is secured with two side buttons and one back and has a nice soft roll.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. A finely folded locker loop sits over a box pleat on the back yoke. The front placket is also pleated, made the right way, using a true two piece construction. The feel is more substantial and the effort higher, but it's the right way. An angular chest pocket completes the front. Our cuffs are double button with rounded corners.
