Denim shirts are useful. They will solve virtually any wardrobe-related dilemma that comes your way. Like, having-a-sibling-who's-a-contractor useful. And the most useful kind of denim shirt is Western, which you'll probably want in a medium-to-light weight for maximum versatility. So here is, in our opinion, one of the best Japanese options.
TCB reproduced the iconic sawtooth shirts from the 50's when the western style and dude ranchers were in full swing.
The sawtooth flap pockets and the eye-catching back yoke are the famous features of the shirts from this era. In reverence to the vintage, for the lapping seam, TCB uses a 7/32 inch seam width and the buttons made of white shellfish.
The cut for this dude ranch shirt has been modified to fit into your urban wardrobe!
The same fabric as the TCB Ranchman shirt. An 8.5oz indigo denim with some irregularity on the surface. The cotton used for the denim fabric is grown in California. The denim is woven by vintage looms very slowly for the natural unevenness.
TCB (which stands for Two Cats Brand or Taking Care of Business) is a Japanese label founded in Kojima by Hajime Inoue in 2012. It specializes in reproductions of the classic American denim icons produced from the 1920s to the 1960s. Among his garments, we can find some of the highest-quality reproductions we have ever seen, made in his own workshop on sewing machines more than a hundred years.
