Here we have Roy's third shirt release, using the most exotic fabric thus far. This shirt is made of a natural indigo-dyed denim produced by Japan's famed Collect Mills which specializes in older dying techniques and using natural indigo dye. The fabric's weight clocks in at 8oz per square yard, meaning it can also be used as an overshirt.

This new shirt has a more rugged feel and look to it compared to Roy's past shirts, much of that is attributed to the triple-stitched body, heavier fabric, and the simple solid aluminum cat's eye buttons used.

One of the details we personally love is the busted selvedge seam up the back of the shirt, over time you'll have jean-like train tracks running up your back. Also, Roy has this wild machine that's able to do a stitch that melts our minds, it's meant to be an invisible hemming machine but to us it looks like a crazy fabric perforator. He's used this machine to hem the front placket of the shirt which also hides the button backs from your body when the shirt is worn. The gussetted side seams have two layers of fabric accenting the gusset, the denim for durability then the selvedge ID of the deadstock Cone selvedge chambray peaking out behind it for the natural selvedge accent.

This is a versatile shirt with an impressive shade of blue due to the natural indigo dye that's going to age well with regular wear and washings. We can't wait to see what these shirts look like after six or twelve months of wear.

Disclaimer: These shirts are made of sanforized denim, when washed the fabric will shrink ~1" in the length and ~1" in the chest. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size.
