Taking a somewhat random approach to the ageing process on this piece, each shirt will be slightly unique as several stages in the distressing process of this shirt are done by hand. The details like the white thread, triple chainstitched construction throughout this piece, embody the luxury production methods that was once the norm in garment manufacturing many decades ago.

Paying homage to the traditional American prisoner's uniform, this shirt features the large chest pockets which were apparently made with the horizontal opening to make it hard to hide anything. The rounded collars are a feature Momotaro added to give the garment a more casual feel. In keeping with the traditional style of the shirt, large brass buttons are used.
