Smoke Top in Plant-Dyed Pink & Green Checked Organic Cotton

$325.00
Size

Undeniably quirky, the Smoke Top lies somewhere between smock top and overshirt, channeling vibes from a 1970's Japanese disco and smashing them onto select men's beachwear of the 19th century. With a straight hem and boxy torso that soberly balance a mildly eccentric collar featuring a unique internal loop-fastening system. Naturally dyed with palash and cherry plum in dusty watermelon hues and then woven into an incredibly labor (of love) intensive checked organic cotton fabric with exceptional handfeel. 

Features button-fastening sleeves, and two interior chest pockets, perfect for secret stashing.

Part of Story's SS20 Gentle Machines collection - limited availability.
