With a 14.5-oz fabric, the UES heavy flannel shirt is one of our favorite indigo flannels in the world. A selvedge indigo flannel that has been carefully rope-dyed so you will get amazing beautiful fades.
The 14.5-oz fabric has been woven on old-fashioned shuttle looms in Okayama by UES Denim, creating a rough exterior and a super-comfortable interior weave.
The entire shirt is full of superior-quality details and uses an outstanding, highly skilled sewing process. The main body seams have been rolled and double-chain-stitched, thus producing a strong garment that can be cherished for a long time. The two rounded pockets are painstakingly crafted and the lining has been brushed to obtain an extra-soft feel.
The buttons are made from ivory palm nut with a beautiful gradient tone. Ivory palms are medium-sized-to-tall palms reaching up to a height of 20 m, with pinnate leaves. The "nut" is covered with pericarp, which is removed by animals, They help counter both the destruction of the rain forest and the elephants. For many years the buttons on uniforms worn by U.S. soldiers came from ivory palm nuts. Like so many natural dyes and textile fibers, vegetable ivory has been replaced with less expensive synthetics.
The cut is a modern slim fit.
By using the direct dyeing of colored threads, the colors will fade moderately and you can enjoy the soft ageing from continuous wearing and washing.
