Kato Doesn’t Take Flannel Lightly.
For the latest version of “The Anvil,” They sourced a special heavyweight 13oz plaid flannel from Japan, blurring the lines even further between shirt and jacket. This 100% cotton fabric has foregone the usual brushing process, leaving the surface of the fabric as it was when it came off the loom. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Japanese plaid is the tighter, more intricate 5 color patterns. Staying true to our roots, we selected 4 vintage colorways: Blue, Green, Orange, and Navy. This offering is distinct and colorful, but not too bold.
“The Anvil” Shirt Jacket, is meticulously crafted using a 3D pattern. Most tops are cut from two-dimensional patterns. With these 2D patterns, the front is sewn directly to the back. “The Anvil” Shirt Jacket introduces side panels as the third dimension, allowing more control over the shape of the garment. This result is a garment with an impeccable fit.
As always, “The Anvil” Shirt Jacket features vintage-style rounded chest and hand pockets, military-style cat-eye buttons, and lined cuffs.
