Layer it with My Favorite Shirt.
This button-down shirt was the challenge that started the collection. Would it be possible to turn to make a shirt entirely from scratch?
What did people do before the invention of the button-hole machine? Before plastic and metal buttons? How would we make these in a forest where neither existed?
Credit goes to the artisans for pulling off their embroidery skills and hand-stitching buttonholes that look like they came from a Saville Row suit. Traditional hand-knot buttons made from fabric cording fit perfectly through the button-holes.
A relaxed fit with dropped shoulders, the wide shirt is cropped for high-waisted pants, and looks great half-tucked in the front for that effortless "Je ne sais quoi" look. Cozy hand-sewn french seams follow the curves of the body.
The exposed fabric selvedge running down the front placket and sleeve cuff reminds you it's the real handwoven stuff.
This is the natural cotton color: raw, pure and unadulterated. Fluffy white fiber plucked directly from the cotton shrub, it's the closest you'll get to wearing a plant straight from the earth.
The original prototype was made for a Smithsonian exhibition and took two years to perfect.
