The Muller & Bros. garage shirt is an amazing piece made of rigid 10-oz sanforized Japanese denim fabric with a unique stiff and neppy texture. The nep of this artful fabric produces snowy sprinkles of light-colored highlights that emerge gradually over its surface as you repeatedly wear it.
It is inspired in the delivery staff shirts worn by the workers of Coca Cola, Chevrolet, and others in the 1940s - 1950s. In the early ’20s, work shirts could feature thin stripes or small dots, but by the mid ’20s and onward solid colors were preferred. Contrast stitching in a lighter shade than the body is one unique feature of a work shirt versus a dress shirt. In winter, plaid was popular in the 1940s to 1950s. Most work shirts had two chest pockets with a button-down flap.
As well as its unique fabric, the Garage shirt by Muller & Bros. is painstakingly finished down to the last detail, and its construction meets Japanese standards of high quality, love of detail and perfection. Highlights are its vintage-style buttoned collar, fitted cuffs, double stitching, buttonholes and buttons in the same indigo color as the fabric and its gussets finishing off its side seams.
With a small atelier located in the mountains of Okayama, Muller & Bros. has become a choice brand since the launch of their first collection thanks to that inspiration in American and French workwear, a feature of each one of their garments, and to an incredible obsession with quality, construction and detailing.
