Reproduce the vintage work shirt

A design that reproduces the vintage work shirt made in the 1920s with the original fabric of the flat head. The chest is asymmetrical as a deformed pocket. The left side of the chest pocket is a vertically long pocket as a pocket watch pocket, and the left and right patterns are matched.
The pocket watch case on the left chest is sewn with a single stroke.

10oz denim (old-fashioned shuttle loom)

Uses a light ounce fabric of 10oz. While maintaining the attractiveness of having a white core and enjoying discoloration, the unevenness of the 10oz fabric and the indigo of the special dark color go well together, expressing a unique unevenness and moderate unevenness.
Dot discharge printing has been tested many times for the color of the dyeing and the dyeing condition of the color, and finished so that the appearance of the dots does not become too hard and the texture is natural.

Chin strap

Commonly known as "chinst", it is the strap part attached to the top button part.
It has the role of suppressing the fluttering of the collar due to the wind, etc., and is a detail found in work shirts and overalls before the 1930s.

Cat eye button

A reproduction of the buttons found on shirts before the 1960s, which are called cat-eye buttons because they literally look like cat eyes.
The sewing thread sinks into the dent, which makes it less likely to wear out, making it difficult to remove the button. There is also a hole in the placket for the pocket watch chain to pass through, which is an accent to the design.

Reinforced bar tack

The end of the hem and the corners of the chest pocket are reinforced with bar tack to prevent the thread from fraying. The dark green bar tack is also a one-point accent.

Triple stitch

The main part is sewn with triple stitch winding with 3 needles.
It is stronger than the double stitch of two needles and has a workwear-like detail.

Selvedge unique to shuttle looms

One of the vintage details, the back of the placket is made of Mimi (edge), which is a proof of weaving with a shuttle loom.

Triangular gusset

Triangular gussets are attached to both sides of the hem.
This detail is found in vintage shirts and is said to have been added to reinforce the mating hem.
The flat head is sewn with sufficient strength, but it has a gusset in the sense of design rather than reinforcement.
