The Slim Fit
The shirt pattern has been improved by making the front panel larger and the back smaller than our previous slim fits. For a slim appearance and fit, the waist point and back darts have been lowered too.
The pocket has been placed slightly slanted on the shirt so that it will appear straight when worn. As an added elegant detail, the stitch on the pocket is triangular. (*Button-down shirts only.)
The smaller 9 mm diameter top button complements the sharp look of the collar. To match the elegant feel of the new model, the front placket, sleeve placket, and stitch width have been narrowed.
The sleeves have been made slimmer, and point forward naturally. The curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket, which in turn means the cuff of the shirt sleeve and the jacket are parallel.
Kamakura Shirts Commitments
We use 100% natural cotton fabrics. Most of our fabrics have a minimum of 80 cotton yarn count to ensure the most exquisite feel.
Shell buttons are the hallmark of luxury shirts. Our natural shell buttons possess a unique sheen. They have a beautiful natural glow and are easy to button on and off, compared to the plastic buttons.
The balance between the front and back sides, the inner winding form of the collar that wraps around the neck, and the swaying design that matches the natural arm position are based on the techniques of Japanese artisans. In addition, we have pursued a sharp and elegant appearance by using a small first button, a thin sleeve placket and front placket.
The best quality shirts will place an indulgent 18 stitches, while we go a step further with 21 stitches, attained by the culmination of experience and the result of outstanding needlework.
