The Spring Tops Drop

April 07, 2021

Rolling fresh off the production press, we have a barrage of new tops from some of our favs including Japan Blue, Momotaro and Studio D'Artisan. If you are looking to revamp your wardrobe with some new shirts and jackets, look no further.
Kicking things off with JB, their latest proprietary dobby sashiko is indigo rope dyed to perfection.
Dubbing their new fabric the "Dobby Dot", the playful approach to this season's annual dobby release is a welcome change to previous iterations which have seen a more traditional pattern motif.
Combining both an ethically sourced banana stem fibre and Cote D'Ivoire's stellar cotton, JB's new tailored shirt is a testament to the  ongoing mission to innovate the already extensive fabric lineup.
In order to produce the chambray fabric used for this shirt, the banana fiber is blended with Cote d'Ivoire cotton, which harmonizes well with the simple texture. Additionally, using this particular pesticide free, hand-picked fabric gives a positive boost to the dying cotton industry of Cote D'Ivoire, and the JB team have gone to lengths to create a system where a portion of the profits from this model are appropriated to the development fund of Cote D'Ivoire.
Also no strangers to the shirting game, Momotaro have once again come through with an indigo-dyed banger featuring two combinations of dobby sashiko fabric, completed to perfection with the eponymous GTB (Going to Battle) painted lines.
Paying homage to the traditional American prisoner's uniform, this shirt features the large chest pockets which were apparently made with a horizontal opening to make it hard to hide anything from prison guards.
Moving onto jackets, Momotaro's new beige color denim coverall features a lightweight 10.5oz. weight fabric, perfect for those Spring outings.
The pentagon shape flap featured above pays homage to a bygone period where vintage pocket watches were stored inside for easy access.
Combining a classic USN coverall motif with a modern water-resistant canvas fabric this piece features equal parts functionality with a clean aesthetic.
Available in both Olive and Natural colorways, step outdoors in confidence with peace of mind that this fabric is built to beat whatever the weather throws at you.
At OD, we are suckers for a great button-up, but we were especially pleased with SDA's latest venture into the band-collar game.
Opting for the same fabric as their Paisley print bandana, the exceptionally lightweight fabric is exceptionally breathable and perfect for the warmer months to come.
After a long hiatus, we are also happy to bring back SDA's vintage inspired Railroad Hickory stripe shirts, this time in the short-sleeve variant.
Drawing inspiration from 1930s workwear, the hickory stripe shirts were directly inspired by the garments worn by railroad workers of this era.

Each shirt has been garment dyed to achieve the hue of Beige, Gray and Navy that most closely resembles the vintage railroad pieces that these shirts are paying homage toward.

The latest Spring tops drop on 4/8 @ Midnight (JST).
