Classic work shirt styling is elevated here by a beautiful Broken Twill weave. This alternating of left to right threads not only gives a unique pattern and texture to the fabric but also combats twisting in the fabric over time. The yarns are Kase dyed (dipped in a loop) by hand which delivers the variance in depth and hues to the indigo tones. Samurai have chosen the 'Ichimatsu' design for this shirt which is a checkerboard pattern named after the Edo era kabuki actor Ichimatsu Sanogawa.
Elliot wears size medium shirt. He is 185cm tall and weighs 74kg / 6ft 1" and 163 Lbs.
