The Sawtooth Denim Shirt 8oz Japan Selvage Denim


( / )

Our mission at Brave Star is to constantly seek out unique weaves and dye processes made in small batch runs. The selvage denims we gravitate toward emphasize the beauty and color spectrum of rope dyed indigo. This is a new 8oz quality from Kaihara that we picked up late last year. The rich indigo color is obtained with mercerized yarn. Mercerization is a costly extra step in the production process but the results are well worth it. A mercerized cotton will have a rich lustre, softer hand and much better color uptake than unmercerized yarn. What that means for the denim head is a super dark indigo that will have unlimited potential for high contrast wear. Because of the soft hand feel this is easily a daily wearer no matter the climate or region you inhabit. This would be a strong contender for the next Redline Rally if anyone is considering fading a shirt versus a jacket.

We wanted to combine a modern, tailored look with enough proportion to fit most body types. The mid -section has a slight contour for shape and to eliminate excess fabric in the tail. The length hits right at the low hip with enough of a tail to tuck but can also be worn untucked. Sizing:
