Flannel season has arrived in some parts of the world, and the UES just entered their contender for heavyweight champion of the flannel. Coming in at 14.5 ounces of dizzyingly beautiful fabric—in three different plaid colorways—it’s a fitted shirt suitable for almost any degree of autumn chill you can throw at it, even just chillin’ at home playing video games.
Your lumberjack cousins are gonna be jealous of this Japanese-milled flannel, woven in Okayama on vintage shuttle looms exclusively for UES, you won’t find this rough-hand, soft-weave interior at Target. Nor will you find these shapely flap chest pockets, the inside brushed so you can put your most delicate/important of possessions, like your face mask.
The handsome ivory palm nut buttons are harvested by animals from palm trees, and made into buttons, the process of which helps counter the destruction of the rain forest and the lives of Elephants. Sustainable details are where it’s at. From thread spinning and dying to manufacturing, these are all made in Japan, the new flannel capital of the world.
