Once again, Japan shows us true master of yarn and composition with a supremely soft, rainbow nep twill - this time in a bright concrete grey color.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. When we think of fabric as art, it really needs to be special material. Japan, like no other country, is able to transform a classic material into something much more special. It always starts with a tremendous foundation. This is a simply one of the softest twills we've ever felt. The combination of a light 3.5 ounce weight and brushed top and bottom surfaces makes this fabric one you won't want to take off. It's flowing and supple. A light grey warp and white weft combine to create a cloudy concrete shade. Here is where things get truly amazing. Dotting the fabric surface are a rainbow of colored neps. Reds, yellows, blues and greens. It's not overpowering, but certainly visible enough to know you have something really special on your hands. This is the type of fabric we live for and that instantly has to be part of your shirt collection.
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.
