Vintage Ivy Needlecord Shirt

*Comes with a specially designed postcard by Graham Marsh.
These warm autumn/winter button-down shirts in white, green, cerulean blue, and navy blue are made from high-quality, Japanese needlecord fabric — a much finer version of corduroy ideal for shirting. The weaving, dyeing, and finishing of the fabric are all done in the Enshu region of Shizuoka Prefecture, where 95% of Japanese corduroy is produced. The fabric is dyed in a drum washer and sun-dried, avoiding the use of standard rollers that can crush the ridges in the fabric. The fabric is then singed with fire, wetted, and then kneaded to create an ultra-soft texture only possible through Japanese manufacturing.

"For a brief period in the 1960s corduroy was everywhere, there were even corduroy shoes. Kamakura have revived this material by making a Vintage Ivy shirt in a very fine, soft needlecord. This button-down classic is available in four traditional colours. Deep navy blue, green, mid blue and white. Get one in every colour, you won't regret it.

-Graham Marsh, Co-Author of "IVY LOOK",
Designer of "Kamakura Shirts Vintage Ivy Collection

In the 1960s, Mr. Marsh, deeply influenced by the jazz and Ivy League look of the time, encountered Kamakura Shirts fifty years later in 2012. The meticulously crafted Kamakura Shirts' Oxford button-downs evoked memories of the Ivy League style of that era. Since that encounter, Mr. Marsh has been consistently designing new pieces every year, and we have been committed to creating products that meet the expectations of those who look forward to Mr. Marsh and the VINTAGY IVY COLLECTION.
