Polka Dot Woven Shirt

Last February, we introduced the  Japan Line-our premium line- reinterpreting two of our flagship room at exceptional Japanese materials jean Kurabo and selvedge chambray shirt Maruwa.

Sincerely, we never thought you were going so welcome.

We were so happy to see that, like us, you were sensitive to Japanese creative work in fabrics and textures!

So we thought it was going to remain a simple test, the success of this small line led us to enlarge, so we welcome a second shirt Japanese material …

Why a “Japan Line”?

We have a lot talked about the importance of the materials, their texture, their hand … and it must be said that the Japanese are excellent in this area.

This line was created for one reason only: to share and transmit our passion for beautiful materials .

You discover unique fabrics work, confidential weavers, but with real value once the clothing worn!

And as a reminder, I wrote in February:

“Are we going out the other Japan Line clothing in the coming seasons? Quite honestly, we do not know, because everything will depend on your home. We will see later…”

Well, it is with some emotion that I write this article. A sense of excitement at the idea to present this new play, but also gratitude.

Because if you had not been so curious when the first wave, we could not recur today. You have been as passionate as us, and for that, thank you.

Here now the shirt:

The material: woven cotton Japanese manufacturer Kuwamura

Like many Japanese weavers, Kuwamura is highly confidential (the famous Japanese textile secret!).

This is the biggest competitor Maruwa, but we finally know quite little about them.

Each time, it’s the same thing: I have to return the Internets to find crumbs of information…

In research force (thank you Google and its French-Japanese translator), I discovered that its history dates back to 1928.

? Kuwamura is then centered on the export of fabrics, especially with the US. Will follow a period of hiatus during the Second World War until 1947.

Upon reopening, Kuwamura decides to do with old trades Jacquard its spearhead … That’s about all I can tell you about the company, which describes itself as “a specialist in the creation of tissues cotton dyed son based on Japanese designs”.

This time, we wanted something very natural, with a look a bit vintage. It was therefore facing a white cotton cloth, but we wanted her to have still something more, a little detail that is not found much elsewhere. Thus the idea of navy blue pea we came.

The pattern is discreet enough not to ask any assembly problem, but it provides an interesting and subtle twist to an outfit. However, it was unthinkable that the peas are printed in all-over (of all the stuff, note); woven or nothing!

What is wabi-sabi?

The wabi-sabi is a pillar in Japan’s approach to aesthetics, which can be summarized by”praise the imperfect beauty”. Geoffrey has repeatedly mentioned in his articles.

This results on this tissue: its appearance a bit rustic, relief created by the embroidered polka dots, waves on the back … So many little elements that give its character to the shirt!

Cutting and finishing of the spotted shirt Japan Line

As usual, we went on our usual cut, it is exactly the same as our oxford shirt. It is essential to maintain the ease, especially in such beautiful materials!

We also wanted an intermediate length, or to bring it back out of the pants.

As usual, the last buttonhole is horizontal to better distribute the tension in the abdomen.

To keep a collar with the holding, we opted for our usual system button-down  : a small button is sewn on each tip to keep in place.

The buttons are  mounted on tail: as you know, is more robust.

There are however new, as we headed towards polyester resin buttons. To be honest, we wanted to see some other things that our buttons wood or nacre.

Alexander again proved his sense of detail with a very soft tone, which remains harmonious with the rest of the shirt. This allows to play with a little less opaque than usual buttons.

How to maintain it?

I invite you to be careful if you do not want to alter the beauty of the material, its uniqueness requires good treat  :

  • Wash at 30 ° maximum,
  • No dryer.

How to choose your size ?

The format is very classic, just take your usual size! I know I say this every launch, but it’s that simple. I recall that the pea jacket of Japan Line has the same section as our oxford shirt.

Wearing a polka dot shirt?

There’s really no problem with this shirt, you enfilerez spontaneously. Let’s see some inspirations at vintagenowtrending.com!
