With our ongoing collaboration series with Momotaro Jeans, in this fourth installment we decided to develop an original Indigo Check Selvedge fabric with the Collect Mill for exclusive use on this shirt. We had a vision for the perfect fabric for shirting in mind, but none of the available textiles on the market met our expectations. So with the help of our friends at Collect, we milled this fabric from scratch. Applying the silhouette of a classic Half Raglan Sleeve shirt, the construction is a world apart from your classic Oxford. 

Opting for some truly unique design details on this piece, upon close inspection the subtle detail that makes the biggest difference in the beautiful silver triple chainstitch construction throughout this garment. Even down to the button holes, the distinct and silver threading used in the construction of this piece is something we have never really seen used as threading for this kind of shirt. Other subtle details, like the vibrant red eyelets that provide function on the armpits and the meticulous triple chain stitching on all the seams, yoke and arms elevate the durability of this piece.

We had 3 rolls of this fabric produced, all of which was used in the production of the 57 pieces we produced. Thus it is fair to say, you won't be seeing this exact fabric around again anytime soon.

*Model is pictured wearing a size 40. He weighs 77kg (170 pounds) and is 176cm (5'10") tall.

**After the first wash of this garment, please expect about a 2cm (.8") loss in the chest, shoulder and sleeve. The center back will also lose about 1cm (.4").
