At first glance, you might be thinking to yourself, “Oh, that’s neat. Another indigo-dyed wabash stripe shirt.” But don’t be so quick to judge, fellow garment enthusiast — the new Jelado Poker Wabash Shirt has got some interesting tricks up its sleeves (and everywhere else, for that matter).
Constructed out of a sturdy 10oz. Japanese indigo-dyed fabric, this shirt features an all-over discharge print that appears to be the classic dotted pattern known as the “Wabash stripe,” which was borrowed from heritage clothing that could be regularly seen working on railroad back in the day. This shirt, however, would be better suited in a dimly lit basement with cigar in hand, as the pattern is actually made up of playing card symbols!
The uniqueness of the fabric is matched with iron buttons that have been oxidized and will show their age with plenty of wear, and the shirt is finished with chain stitching and triple needle construction, with the run-off intact. Grab a deck of cards and some buddies, and show ’em how it’s done.
