The Rite Stuff offers a small, yet well-considered assortment of ethically made-in-Japan garments using traditional techniques. When they offer a new garment it’s because they’ve been able to get it just right and take the needed time to do so. They’ve consistently moved from strength-to-strength as they’ve expanded the collection, and their latest, the Atlas Work Shirt, continues their streak.
Crafted with one of the last remaining salt & pepper selvedge chambray fabrics made in the world today, this one being a robust 6.5oz. cotton version milled in Japan, the shirt is filled to the brim with 1930s details such as a neckband tab (aka chinstrap), a period correct thread gauge with chain stitch runoff, a thin back yoke, continuous cuffs, and urea cat’s eye buttons. In continuing with the promise of the entire range, the piece is ethically made and includes a signature by the worker who made it. Not bad, not bad at all.
Available for $160 at The Rite Stuff.
