5698 - "Midare Kasuri" Heavyweight Check Flannel Shirt - Red

$ 265.00

Nobody puts in the historical research and effort like the designers at Studio D'artisan. You've maybe seen Karusi fabric in the past, but it is likely you've never seen this style known as "Midare." It originates from a very long period in which dyeing Kimono with Kasuri was very popular (1429-1879). This specific style uses slub yarns to bring out that little starburst string of white you see running both horizontally and vertically. When we see a fabric like this, our alien brains kick into overdrive and we have to have it. Over the past two years, funky fabrics like this "Midare Kasuri" have been the first to go. This pairs so nicely with a pair of black pants that we're having a hard time not taking it home!

    Fit Notes: Most of our Japanese brands are known for fitting small, and this one fits the bill. Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 42 in the pictures, which is closest to a large, and it fits him perfectly. His standard size is medium, so he has followed the "size up once for Japanese brands" rule. Tommy is 5'10," 163lbs with a 40" chest.
