Paper To Product: Edition 209

Sometimes you're feelin' blue and we don't blame you. It's the most versatile color. We often wear blue shirts with indigo denim as a nice alternative to black on black.

These prints will naturally pair with our khaki or olive chinos, but because of their deep indigo hue they knock it dead with dark denim. Better yet, they deliver that touch of whimsy that is oh so necessary when pairing dark blue with solid color bottoms. Just a little bit of playfulness in pattern goes a long way, and these two prints are perfect for year-round wear.

We have a strong affinity for these two because it's the same base fabric as the beloved Indigo Star Jack. For three years now, the Indigo Star Jack has been one of our best selling shirts because the slubby cotton fabric is incredibly soft and substantial yet airy. Moreover, the printing on all of these shirts is carried out by a mill in Japan that has a long history printing traditional Japanese textiles.

Printed in Japan on Japanese milled cotton, designed with a modern fit and sewn by hand with single needle french seams in San Francisco, this product represents the pinnacle of modern day craftsmanship.
