Just as chefs care about their ingredients, we care about our material Cotton is known as “short-fiber” material, as the fiber length is usually under 25mm. We use extra-long stable cotton from China’s Xinjiang region for our 200/4PLY shirts, with a fiber length of 35 mm or more.
Ultra-fine thread from extra-long staple cotton “200/4 PLY”on the label refers to the thinness of the thread used for the fabric. This special thread is made by twisting four extra-fine yarns of 200 count threads. The delicate, high-density weave of this thread creates a one-of-a-kind fabric.
Unique Coloring + Elegant Gloss = Beautiful Designs The 200/4PLY shirts take advantage of the excellent coloration properties of cotton, combined with the glossy silk-like texture created by using ultrafine yarn. The colors and patterns are all original designs for Kamakura Shirts.
Mother of Pearl ~Natural Shell Buttons~ The natural shell buttons are made using “Mother of Pearl”, a material found in the inner shell of pearl oysters. Each pearl button has a unique shine and luster, adding a little luxury to your everyday shirt.
Now available in our new "Manhattan Model" “The shirt everyone has been waiting for…” The Manhattan Model was created by Norimitsu Shibayama, Chairman of the Japan Modelist Association. Collar, body, sleeve – every detail is lavished with attention. ※Some shirts are not the “Manhattan Model” and use different sewing specifications.
