Email sent: Nov 15, 2020 10:44am
We hate to see great fabric go. Our partner mill in Japan just let us know this sweet fabric is no longer being made. The good news: we snagged that last small lot left and sewed it into one of our most beautiful workshirts. This is the BrownXBlack Wool Herringbone Workshirt. Act fast on this deadstock wool.

Japan is creating some of our favorite wools this season. The color and feel are unbeatable and this style showcases that skill perfectly. The herringbone weave really defines this style. It lends the perfect sense of vintage formality. The v-pattern adds visual texture. The contrasting colors of yarn serve to highlight the herringbone weave. This version in rich brown against jet black. Even from afar, you can detect that this is no ordinary cotton twill. You see the thickness, you see the subtle fibrous texture of classic wool. You instantly feel the wool, but it's quite soft and not itchy. That suppleness comes from the cotton blend composition. Sewn into our Workshirt, this fabric takes on a wonderfully antqiue look from the rusty brown color. It's luxury in rugged form. 

BrownXBlack Wool Herringbone Workshirt
Our vintage heather grey heavyweight t-shirt treated to a dye bath to create a fresh set of subtle heather colors. It's a true American icon that will transport you back in all the right ways. Big weight, vintage feel, modern fit. Best of all, it's made in the USA from big weight material to sewing and offered at value you won't find anywhere else. 

If you've ever stumbled on a thrift store with great vintage t-shirts, you'll notice they tend to have a different feel than a lot of what you see in the t-shirt world today. The weight and the hand have a certain toughness and honesty that sometimes gets lost in more modern examples. As raw denim fans, we've never shied away from the challenge of developing fabric over time. Of earning that softness. This is what drove us to make our new Heavy T-shirt. We wanted to capture the spirit of the tougher t-shirts of earlier days. We think we've done it.

Fabric is the star. We use a new burly, triblend, 18 singles jersey. It's old school. Extra heavy and dense, you feel the substance this t-shirt has the second you touch it. The hand feel is also very different. It starts off with a touch of coarseness. You have to earn your comfort like raw denim, but over time it develops into that wonderful blend of weight and suppleness. When you get to that point, just be sure nobody tries to snag it from you because it's a special thing. We switched up the collar construction to a binding style that's set over the body to give it a bit more heft. We overdye heather grey to create a totally fresh set of colors with a subtle heather effect. This is a t-shirt to take pride in.
