Our long-awaited partnership with Post O'Alls has finally come to fruition. As we transition into a Post Heritage version of James Dant, one that doesn't shirk the traditional ways of manufacturing but accepts newer, more contemporary silhouettes...it only makes sense to work with a brand like Post O'Alls. Since its origin in 1993, this brand has been taking iconic American silhouettes and giving them a little extra. In the more recent past, this started to translate to a more modern form of garments. In a world full of "perfect fits" they were offering roomy silhouettes that drape perfectly but don't have to stick to you to look good. It may not be what "Post Overalls" stands for, but we like to think of the "Post" as meaning "after" and the "O'Alls" as meaning heritage. They've evolved beyond the ideals of traditional American menswear into a genre of their own.
One of the first items on the list that drew our attention was the Chinois. The question was collar or no collar. Well for this first round, we opted for the collarless version which felt a little more fun for layering. This is a fusion of vintage French China and pre-war French Workwear. This is going to wear like your favorite French chore coat but with all the styling of a kung-fu shirt. Those micro monkey knots are such a beautiful, functional addition to the piece. And the fabric is to die for. It's super lightweight with that nice vintage hand-feel we all look for in a well-worn cotton piece. We think this is one of the most versatile items in their lineup as it can be worn as a shirt, outerwear, and cardigan.

A variance of +/-.5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: As with most Post O'Alls fits, these are on the roomier side. From a majority of Japanese brands, Tommy is not able to wear mediums...but this fit with even a little extra room. For us, that is the intended fit of the brand and how we would choose to wear nearly every piece. The arms have extra room in the opening and the length is spot-on to wear with a straight-cut pant. We would recommend sticking with your true size unless you're looking for a trim fit. Tommy is 5'10," 175lbs with a 40" chest, and is wearing a M in the pictures.
