With summer well on its way, we can finally start wearing blue shirts again. In the Fall and Winter, I’m always wearing jeans, but once things warm up, I’m bound jump into khakis and fatigues, both of which handsomely complement a good 0l’-fashioned indigo tee.
This collaborative tee from Okayama Denim and Loop & Weft is, of course, deeply indigo-dyed. Not only that, but the tee is cut from a broad stitch knit fabric. Broad Stitch is a non-mechanized knitting method that needle punches indents into the cloth’s face in a randomized fashion, creating a crazy three-dimensional pattern.
The pattern might seem a little strange, but it breaks up the tee and makes for a more comfortable, breathable fabric. The garment-dyed t-shirt uses a four-needle flat seam machine to get achieve vintage-inspired details we love.
Made in Japan, this slim-fit, once-washed tee is a shoo-in for your summer wardrobe—and, as with any indigo purchase—it’ll be looking even better in six months’ time.
Available for $125 at Okayama Denim
