The Minimalist Jacket is hand printed, hand cut, and hand sewn by one man in his Brooklyn-based workshop. You see, Tony Shirtmakers is a bit of a ruse. The name may lead one to think that Tony is the head honcho, and that he has a legion of hands under his command, but in actuality he handles all duties on his own. Shout out to Tony. It’s a much more grueling road he’s on, but he’s able to ensure the quality is to his standards, which is a reward in and of itself. It’s got his name on the tag after all.
While they say this denim jacket has a “retro” look, it actually touches on a handful of current tastes. With a boxy fit that stops at the waist and sparse detailing—other than two oversized snap pockets and a handprinted abstract geometric pattern—this is a piece that rests not so far from the center of the current Venn diagram of menswear. Though screen printed denim hasn’t made its way to our Fade of the Day inbox quite yet, we’re waiting patiently at our keyboards.
Available for $355 at No Man Walks Alone.
