This beautiful band collar shirt is constructed from a 5oz Japanese Indigo Wabash. It features a slim silhouette and all the iconic classic workwear details such as the double-needle chainstitch runoffs and the workshirt pocket detailing. The buttons are made from brown resin in a small traditional Japanese workshop.
This style of shirts originated with the invention of detachable collars. Detachable collars were popular in the 1830s and were designed so that collars could be washed separately from the shirts they attached to, meaning less frequent laundry days. Who wouldn't want to do less laundry? While detachable collars haven't had a revival, band collar shirts - the base that detachable collars were designed for - are still fashionable today.
