RRL‘s latest would make your granny proud: the limited edition workshirt reads like a dizzying mashup of quilting bee / denimhead / textile historian.
The 100% cotton fabrics include wabash, polka dots, chambray, gingham, stripes, and stars for good measure. And because they are actually stitched-together patches, rather than a printed trompe l’oiel, the seams will wear down for an extra-aged look in no time. The fabric combinations are based on a quilt from the 1890’s, and their diagonal assembly adds an extra layer of visual pizzazz.
A point collar, buttoned placket, shell buttons, two chest pockets, and buttoned barrel cuffs finish things off.
Only 150 are available – find yours on the RRL site for $595.
