Paper to Product: Edition 234

Texture. Rarely can we sum up the magic of a garment in a single word, but texture does the trick for this piece.

The texture comes from a herringbone weave that alternates army and forest green chevrons. Woven into this herringbone are slub yarns that run horizontally across the fabric. On top of that, there is an amazing nep or brushed look that results from washing.

In addition to being a mossy green masterpiece of texture, this shirt is also the sartorial panacea for your closet's chronically high levels of the color blue. This shirt doesn't just go with denim, it actually brings denim to life. The same goes for chinos and if you are lucky enough to own them, our canvas chore pants.

Anytime you are able layer two different and complimentary textures upon one another, you are as they like to say in the menswear game, "killing it." In addition to subtly proclaiming your deftness in pattern layering, sporting this shirt will bring great pleasure to you and also to the semi-jealous onlookers who are covertly studying it. Truthfully, you can't help but to be captivated by this shirt. In all of our years, we've never seen anything quite like it. There is a warmth and depth to the fabric that makes you want to rub it with dumbfounded intrigue. It is soft and structurally substantial. It will endure a beating while complimenting damn near everything but mossy green bottoms and most importantly solves the conundrum of what to wear with your favorite pair of jeans.
