Momotaro Indigo 'Patchwork Styled' Workshirt

Inspired by the vintage Japanese ‘boro’ kimono, this piece is deeply rooted in both Japanese workwear and history.

For a more refined look this one has been skillfully jacquard woven with varying patterns, rather than the layering of patches. This makes for a completely tonal look that will age consistently throughout to a bright indigo shade.

With classic work shirt style pockets and chain stitch run-off, this is a practical design for daily use. The contrasting wooden buttons have tasteful elegance, and will gradually patina.

If you are after a modern style work shirt with traditional Japanese inspiration, this is the choice!
