Benson Plaid - Black
Freenote - Benson Plaid - Black
Ewww wee, this version of the Benson is pretty. My goodness, these colors do it for us. The only way we can describe the weight of the Benson is by comparing it to the UHF from IH. It's honestly the only thing that compares. It's a gorgeous heavily brushed Japanese plaid. Each year, they bless us with a new variation, and I have to say my friends...this is the best one yet. Last year's were bold...we'll give them that. But, this year is a color that everyone can get on board with. A black base never steers us wrong. And you add in that rusty-colored accent piece to create a fantastical marriage, the likes of which we have yet to see this season from our friends at Freenote.

Fit Notes: Ryan is wearing a size small in the pictures. He's typically a small in North American brands. Freenote has an American cut that extends to this Benson. You should have room to layer if you go with your true North American size, or if you size one down you'll get a more slimming fit. Shop owner Tommy wears a small in almost all Freenote garments. He's our standard fit model and weighs in at 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest measurement.
The only thing that could've improved this serge western was a new color. This one was originally called Mocha Brown, which we think is very suitable. It's this rich color that suits this now iconic shirt. It used to be that we rarely saw green from Iron Heart, but now green is a staple. So, we've been super stoked to see khakis and browns rearing their pretty heads. You can't go wrong with the western cut, unless you don't size up, as it has some absolutely gorgeous details. We love the yokes and Permex buttons the most on these beauties.
We felt very lucky to be a part of this limited edition "Year of the Rabbit" release. These were right up our alley with special little touches throughout. They really went above and beyond with the theme, starting with the rabbit mosaic. You have to look close, but you'll see little guys in an arctic colorway forming the GTB stripes. The hair on the patch is a really nice touch as well (it's not rabbit). There's custom details interworked throughout, including printed "Year of the Rabbit" pocket bags and jacquard liner. The interior is bonkers. There is of course all of Momo's standard, but incredible details. But, the capper has to be the peaking Rabbit laser engraved on the front coin pocket. It was a total surprise to us, and a happy one at that. The fabric is also an icon. The 13oz really shines with this one-wash treatment and is full of micro hairs and texture. We're so excited to be one of only two stores in all of the US even offering this denim! It's a rare one, that's for sure - we were only allowed to buy 10 pairs.
We've been looking for something a little wider than the narrow taper, and we've found just that. This Wide Straight, also known as the classic straight is just the thing to break you out of your slim jeans. We started our initial run of Momotaro with 16oz denim due to the texture, but again and again, received requests for the 15.7oz. This is Momo's iconic "Vintage Label" denim. The lore about its fading potential is heard far and wide
For our initial run with this denim, we went with black battle stripes to make the denim a little more subtle. Due to requests, we had to bring back the black stripe in this 15.7oz fabric. We've seen fades on these down the line, and we can't bring ourselves to move on from the black. It'll be something we're always drawn to. The black will sluff off more naturally with the denim, and from what we now know, will stand out nicely against a heavily faded pair. This is crocking that makes perfect sense.
These are truly gobsmacking. They knocked us off our feet. It's everything that gets us and all of you excited. We've had so many requests for Sashiko fabric in the last few months and this might just be the perfect pair. Our signature black battle stripes have been added to this pair making them a rarity in the denim hunter world. You'll also notice copper rivets as this is the standard 5-pocket model...it's just a basket weave fabric vs twill. They also piped the busted outseam to give them a super finished look when cuffed. We can't overstate how gorgeous these are and we hope they stick around long enough for you to snag a pair.
We've been on the hunt for a good turtle neck for years, and my goodness did we find it. When we tried this on, we forgot it was pima. We knew something was different about the fabric but didn't check the contents until this very moment when we started writing the copy. That's what we find when we're dealing with a fabric that is high in quality - you feel the difference right away. We've seen pima come down the line in many forms, but nothing this thick with the ability to have a stand-neck collar. It's our favorite cotton for a reason. It's luxurious and so soft to the skin. We think these are an incredible addition to any wardrobe needing a shake-up and a staple at the same time.
A knit-like high-neck shirt made from high-quality Spanish Pima cotton. Although the fabric is tightly packed, it is thinner than a sweatshirt and features the smoothness and softness of the thread, making it comfortable to wear. It is easy to match with various styles of outerwear and can be used as an inner layer in autumn and winter. The cotton material makes it difficult for static electricity to occur and can be washed at home.
