04-010 - Sashiko Vest - Indigo
Momotaro - Sashiko Vest - Indigo
We were super stoked to see our favorite sashiko fabric in a vest. This piece is quite a bit more contemporary than its hunting vest counterpart. The piped pockets and sleek design ensure that. This baby looks great over the top of a tee shirt or your favorite flannel. The big draw for this fabric is how it pops. It's much brighter than the coverall to start and will continue to fade with time. That royal blue is out of this world.

A variance of +/- .5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: This was the same situation as the coverall. It's not quite as roomy, but a vest is meant to be closer to the body so it's a little trimmer fit. Tommy is wearing a size 40. Overall they fit great with a light layer underneath. Shop owner Tommy is 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest.
We've been watching from the sidelines for a few years now. We have to admit, shorts were never our forte. But, we've broadened our horizon a bit in the last year and we've become shorts connoisseurs. We could no longer deny that our favorite brands were making shorts just as well as they make everything else. These have a super unique pocket design where the front gusseted pockets nearly mirror themselves as back pockets. It's got the modern flat black coated feather nickel button and an elastic waist for extra comfort. This comes very in handy with a raw denim. They feel stiff up front like a brand-new pair of jeans, but they're so easy to slip on because of that waistband. These will fade with an incredibly shadowy look. We know some guys are going to make these pop with blueberry blue in just a few months, and we can't wait to see it.
9oz Fatigue Shorts - Alpenflage Camo
We've been watching from the sidelines for a few years now. We have to admit, shorts were never our forte. But, we've broadened our horizon a bit in the last year and we've become shorts connoisseurs. We could no longer deny that our favorite brands were making shorts just as well as they make everything else. These have a super unique pocket design where the front gusseted pockets nearly mirror themselves as back pockets. It's got the classic feather nickel button and an elastic waist for extra comfort. We clearly have a bit of a problem with camo (we can't keep our hands off of it). And this is the most unique camo we've seen to date. It's full of unexpected colors and busyness that it almost becomes a plain. That's how we look at the wildest patterns. You can wear them with anything because they become their own amorphous thing.
This is a first for us. Karl has modified the "Field Shirt" slightly for this short sleeve version, but it still holds true to its origins. The major differences are the chopped-off sleeves and the more uniform pocketing. It still has a boxier silhouette and a pen slot in the left pocket. They've also used those iconic black catseye buttons. The fabric is for sure the star of the show. This selvedge twill is as buttery as buttery gets. It has a nice tight weave for a smooth finish that feels extremely luxurious. They've also given us those little pokes of selvedge ticker in the side gussets and on the placket. This shirt kind of ties it all together. It's a bit of what RGT has been known for, for so many years. It's a gorgeous piece to add to any collection.
Our favorite silhouette is back in some gorgeous new fabric. The service shirt is Karl's interpretation of a CPO. It's somewhere between a shirt and jacket leaning more towards the outerwear side with those hand-warmer pockets. They've also gone with the touch of snap buttons vs traditional buttons and holes. It's a really versatile piece that surprises us year after year. This frog camo is a funky cotton/poly blend that's very soft and lightweight giving it a shirt hand-feel. The other fun part is that it's a selvedge, and you know they're gonna give you those little pops of ticker on the placket. This variation has a bit of a crinkled look to it which we think comes from the way the fabric was printed/washed. It has a used/faded look that we really dig. Frog camo has always been a shop favorite, so this was a yes from the starter pistol.
5oz Oxford Shirt Floral Linen - Grey
It's definitely that time of year when linen comes in handy. It's a super strong fiber with a ton of breathability. The real star of the show is this insane floral print. The color palette is vastly vibrant yet easy to digest. The grey is slightly more subtle, but the contrast is even more impeccable on this one. We really enjoy the way the white acts as a perfect springboard for the color, yet the base of the shirt is still considered to be a navy/royal blue. The "Oxford Shirt" is beautifully simple with just a left-hand pocket and minimal construction throughout. These babies are wonderful summer companions.
