The Utility Shirt has always been a looker, but this new USA-made edition ups the ante with a neppy Japanese cotton that’ll add some one-of-a-kind nuance to your roster. Whether you’re stepping up your workday fits or you need something extra rugged for the garage, the ‘shop, or the studio, The Utility Shirt’s tailored fit and meticulous double-needle construction will take you far.


This 6.5-oz. cotton comes from Kuroki Mills, which was founded in 1950 and remains one of Japan’s most renowned textile mills to this day. It has a rich, neppy texture—which means some of the fibers protrude slightly for a unique three-dimensional effect—that’ll add some serious impact to any shirting lineup. This edition of The Utility Shirt is built right here in the USA.
