WOLF BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT - BLACK DABU DYE OXFORD CLOTH
Before those two brothers' Seaport shop became an Italian department store selling outsourced non-iron everything, they made the industry standard Oxford buttondown, here in the US.
Big. Heavy. Unimpeachable.
My father lived in those. This is an ode to him, not them.
The gutsiest Oxford we could find, dyed in the traditional Dabu method. That means this was fully painted in mud, dried, cracked then hand dyed. An exceptionally irregular process for an iconic shirt. Finished off with our hand-embroidered sun at the left side seam, to show that we make these pieces overseas for craft and beauty's sake.
Proudly made in India because they don't do this anywhere else.
Karim is 5'8" with a 30" waist and wears a size XL.
These run true to size but, like most things, look better when you size up (as we have on Karim).
