This is the first time that ONI has produced a Hickory workshirt. This beautiful piece is based on the classic Hickory fabric popularized by American railway workers at the turn of the century. The indigo and white hickory stripe is an instantly recognizable fabric, both iconic and vintage.
The Old Hickory shirt features a regular cut and a button-down style. The construction is top-notch, with triple chain stitching along all the shirt, and chain stitching runoffs (the trail of chain stitched threads that dangle from the side seam) are a sign that the maker is leaning into that vintage appeal. Cut them or keep them—the choice is yours.
The legend of ONI is alive to this day. In recent years Oishi-San has devoted himself to experimenting with widely varying grammages, rough textures, different indigo dyeing techniques and novelty cuts while always maintaining a very limited production and wielding his experience in denim which now goes back more than 60 years.
