One of this season's definite essentials is the Japan White Nep. A beautiful and neppy chambray fabric in a light indigo colour woven on old style narrow shuttle looms at the Japanese fabric mill, Maruwa. This particular fabric has a plain weave chambray construction with uneven weft yarns causing a slubby effect. A technique called loom chatter has also been applied during the weaving process causing the loom to literally shake as it weave which enhances the characteristics of the fabric as it leaves white neps of fibre sticking out of the surface of the fabric.
This top of the line garment is made in their slim shirt model, Ragnar. Designed to rest close to the body for consistency of comfort and is intended for normal layering. Featuring a button down collar and a centre front closure with horn imitated buttons made in Portugal. It has long sleeves ending in button cuffs, a single chest patch pocket with flap, extra space over the shirts back yoke and clean side tabs at the hem.
