Japanese sashiko stitching has evolved massively over the course of a few centuries. Once a decorative way to reinforce and repair homemade garments that needed to last, it’s now just another way to make us drool over garments, like Rogue Territory‘s Indigo Selvedge Camp Shirt.
Last summer saw Rogue Territory deliver a sashiko hawaiian shirt, and they’re back this year with a smarter button-up, made from an indigo-dyed cotton that features a hypnotic, grid-like sashiko pattern. Slim-cut, short-sleeved and lightweight, this shirt is a good option for flexing at the family BBQ in the warmer months. And details like horn-buttons, chainstitch run-off and selvedge-detailing on the hip-gusset all add to the charm.
