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.
The "Traditional" Classic Fit
Collar
To create a traditional feel, the curve of the collar pattern has been reduced. The new pattern employs a lowered neckline to create a relaxed look when the collar is opened.
Body
Compared to the slim fit, the sleeves and body have been kept spacious. By preserving the size of the back panel, together with bringing the side seams forward, we have incorporated the essential ideas of traditional British and American tailoring.
Sleeves
The special characteristic of the Manhattan Model is its sleeves that naturally point forward. The curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket, which in turn means the cuff of the shirt sleeve and the jacket are parallel.
Details
To preserve a traditional look, the shirt has a wider front and sleeve plackets, and also features a wider stitch width in comparison to the Slim Fits. The sleeve plackets employ double stitches to keep this taste. Inspired by the Ivy League style, only the yoke has been narrowed.
Pocket
The pocket has been placed slightly slanted on the shirt so that it will appear straight when worn. As an added Ivy Look detail, the stitch on the pocket is straight. (*Button-down shirts only.)
The Essential Elements
The finest quality materials
It is often said that the best chefs are relentlessly demanding about their ingredients. It is the same with master shirt makers. We pay meticulous attention when selecting the yarns that make up our fine cloths, just as if they were the freshest catch of the day. Most of the yarns selected for our fabrics have a minimum 80 cotton yarn count (2-ply), ensuring the most exquisite feel. We also frequently use 100 and 120 yarn count cotton, and have launched a series of sumptuous fabrics using an unprecedented 300 yarn count cotton.
The superior single needle
Our shirts are finished with single needle stitching, which is regarded as the sign of the finest quality shirts. Although it takes twice the time to sew compared to other common stitches, by rolling the edges inside the seams, the finished product has a smooth touch to the skin.
Buttons and intricate interlining
Shell buttons are the hallmark of luxury shirts. Buttons carved from natural shells each have a unique sheen, adding an understated but unmistakable sense of refinement. The selection of interlining needs to be carefully considered to achieve the ideal structured yet organically flowing form. We only use non-fusible interlining, in order to achieve a natural-looking soft touch to the collars and cuffs.
Precise patterns, beautifully cut
To achieve the best fit and hang, a skillfully prepared pattern is essential. In our search for the ultimate fit, we create an ideal balance between the dynamic of the fabric and the seamster's individual technique, redrawing and adjusting the patterns to perfection. It is through the precision of our patterns that we are able to achieve the subtle profile and flattering silhouette of our shirts. Beautifully cut panels are then elaborately stitched together by seamsters of the highest skill and dexterity.
