UES Indigo Extra Heavy Indigo Tricotine Shirt


Due to its 15.5oz fabric, the UES extra-heavy Tricotine is one of the thickest and most amazing shirts in the world. It is woven using tightly twisted indigo rope-dyed yarns in a double twill, resulting in the sturdiest and most durable shirt fabric we have ever seen.

While using fine-count yarn, UES used an old power loom to create a solid thickness and weave it at a high density to the limit. Due to this, it works as a shirt, overshirt or even as a jacket. It has high rigidity but will soften up with wear and washes.

The entire shirt is full of superior-quality details and uses a unique, highly-skilled sewing process. The main body seams have been rolled and triple-chain-stitched, thus producing a strong garment that can be cherished for a long time. In addition, a piping process was used to obtain a sturdy rolled hem. The buttons are made from ivory palm nut with a beautiful gradient tone.

This Japanese masterpiece features a slim cut and has been carefully indigo rope-dyed so it will show impressive high contrast fades over time and wear.

.UES is a small Japanese label founded by Chuji Matsumoto in 1994. UES comes from the English word "Waste", which means that Matsumoto-San wants you to make full use of each garment for as long as possible before discarding it. It is a small judgement of the concept of disposable wear that is so commonplace today in the world of fashion and from which Matsumoto-San disassociates himself completely.
