This button-down oxford UES shirt stands out for its unique construction and its fabric, a 100% oxford cotton woven with a light indigo rope-dyed warp and natural cotton weft. The natural cotton weft shows dark-coloured flecks in the fabric, which are plant material, including leaves, burrs and bark. It results in a neppy and slubby touch. The light indigo rope-dyed warp will show beautiful light fades over the years.

The entire shirt is full of superior-quality details and uses an outstanding, highly skilled sewing process with a single-needle construction. Single-needle refers to the construction of an item as being wholly made with a lockstitch machine -which can include flat-felled seams. The counterpart to single-needle is a factory that uses automated equipment, machines that only do one type of seam.

Most factories use a combination of single-needle and automated equipment, but automated machines require sewing operators to be adept at using the equipment as opposed to the multi-step seam completion processes (like felling) that are required with single-needle. Thus, facilities that specialize in single-needle have more highly skilled machine operators than is typical because they must render the same results (or better) without the greater efficiency of automated equipment.

The cut is a modern slim fit.

It is the perfect casual-formal light-coloured shirt to wear with your favourite raw jeans.

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.
