This is our 5th Japanese cotton jacquard and we think it's a surefire winning addition to your closet and at $99 it is the most radical value.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We love classic compositions that tweak the details to create a totally different look. That is exactly what this jacquard weave manages to pull off. It starts with a base we all know and love- a yarn dyed, classic chambray weave. A dark navy warp is contrasted by a crisp white weft, giving you a timeless look we never get tired of. Things take a much more interesting turn, with a polka dot pattern woven into the fabric. The dots take the white weft color and lend nice texture to the fabric surface. It is still classic, yet modern- it just works.
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.
