If all the heritage clothing manufacturers in the world went to high school together, The Real McCoy’s would be the straight-A homecoming king. The Japanese masters of mid-century clothing have proven themselves in all three arenas of repro clothing: militaria, sportswearia, and workwearia. Their latest release falls in the last camp and bears the mark of their Joe McCoy sub-brand.
The shirt itself is made of a 7.5oz. rope indigo dyed denim with a redline selvedge id. It comes completely raw and unwashed so expect a bit of shrinkage on that first laundry cycle. Not one to skimp on details, this shirt has the period accurate bells and whistles like triple-needle chainstitch runoff, selvedge gussets on the hem, an extended tab collar, and resin cat’s eye buttons.
Let them take you to school for $255 at Blue in Green.
