Short Sleeve Band Collar Shirt in Indigo Striped Kala Cotton
Simplicity in silhouette, transformed by fit. Straight, loose-sleeved arms on a simple band collar pullover drape into an unexpectedly elegant shape, with stunningly laid-back sleeves. The fabric is a plant based indigo yarn dye stripe in the warp, with a variegated stripe in the weft, inspired by antique Zanshi weavings.
Accented with undyed kala cotton binding at the front placket, and mother-of-pearl buttons.
