There are a ton of camp shirts out there right now, but it’s safe to say none of them are this unique. The fabric Soulive utilized in this special shirt was woven in Japan using a “fukure-ori” (“blown”) weave found in traditional kimono, in which patterns are jacquard-woven into the fabric and then shrunk for a pronounced matelasse three-dimensional character.
Further, the shirt’s beautiful chrysanthemum flower print motif was done by resist-dying, and to take it to the next level, the resit-dying was done with natural indigo, which gives the majority of the shirt the rich, deep blue tone. Made in Okayama, the 100% cotton shirt features the classic open camp collar with top loop closure you’d assume it has, one chest pocket instead of the two (curveball!), a flat hem, and corozo nut buttons that contrast nicely against that midnight indigo tone. If any camp shirt I’ve seen over the last couple of years outlasts the trend, it’s this one. This shirt’s hard to beat.
