Made in South Central Los Angeles
This is the best casual shirt that we've ever made. It starts off as a beautiful PFD (prepare-for-dye) twill from Japan's Kurabo mill. It's 100% cotton, 5.7oz in weight, and it has a subtle slub texture to the weave.
Using an indigo reactive dye, this shirt is tied off and plunged three times into the color bath for a deep and vibrant blue tone. The bright ivory stripes are the original undyed tone shining through. Each piece is dyed entirely by hand for a beautifully varied and irregular pattern. No two shirts are the same!
Each Chainstitch Shirt has our signature athletic slim fit. It has a compact unlined spread collar that cuts a great profile when worn open. Its side seams are secured with a long continuous "chainstitch" line of thread - which is unparalleled for strength and finished with a functional gusset. The sturdy double-track placket is closed with genuine corozo nut buttons. One patch pocket sits on the chest. The mid-length tail allows you to wear the shirt tucked or untucked.
All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one seam at the armpit to the other. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Sleeve" is measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff. "Length" is measured from the base of the collar (where it attaches to the shirt) to the bottom of the tail.
