Fukushima order shirt event
First of all, this shirt is a family-owned business in Fukushima Prefecture that specializes in repairing shirts.
However, she has a track record of manufacturing high-end shirts in the past, and her mother's skills are beyond imagination.
As expected, Sekine, a well-known producer, caught his eye.
Sekine, who is good at it, visited Fukushima 8 times and got the opportunity to produce a few custom-made shirts this time through passionate sales talks.
He's a lovable guy.
Why was he so passionate about that shirt?
-According to Sekine-
A shirt worn by an ironer during a business meeting. That's what inspired me to make this shirt.
I've been wearing it for several years, my stomach is bloated, and the button on my shirt looks like it's going to pop off. Wrinkled and wrinkled.
A nice looking shirt though.
The collar, which is also the face of the shirt, was softly aligned with the best time to see it, creating the atmosphere of the shirt as a whole.
I want someone who can make a collar like this to sew my shirt. That was the beginning of the project for this shirt.
As for the design, it is a dress shirt with a design that has a firm and relaxed fit like a European shirt in the Middle Ages, and the tightening part is tightened.
The shoulder area is set as a drop shoulder, and when it is tucked in, it swells softly.
Take 5 tucks on the cuffs, taper gently from the shoulders to the sleeves, and tighten the cuffs. I expressed my own gentleman.
The design of the collar is a minimal regular color.
According to the seamstress,
"It's not a good shirt if the collar isn't dancing."
The collar, which has been finished with a moderate hardness due to the plush core, sticks to the collar softly as the word says, and when the button is removed, it gently follows the shoulders, and when tied up, it fits gently around the neck along with the tie.
Of course, we used the best fabrics to create this shirt. Thought to find the fabric.
I found a thick shirt fabric woven with an ultra-fine count and created a sample, but I couldn't express the swelling that is the heart of this shirt.
As a result of trial and error, 160-count ultra-fine cotton thread, which is originally used for silk-like supple fabrics, is woven with a low-speed loom in Owari Ichinomiya, which is located in the rich natural environment of the Kiso River basin. We have created a back satin fabric with a solid core inside.
Back satin uses a smooth surface on the back side, which makes it smooth and slippery, and we thought it would be a perfect material for shirts that are close to the skin.
The fabric is thick and densely woven, but by using 160-count ultra-fine thread, the fibers loosen with every wash, making the shirt soft and smooth.
As for sewing, we use 20 to 21 stitches, which is the basics of dress shirts, and we sew slowly over time.
We ask female craftsmen in their 70s, who make a living in sewing in Fukushima, to sew them. We are here.
Currently, we are also active as a repair shop specializing in shirts, and we have a system in place that allows us to repair and replace collars and cuffs even if they are worn for a long time and become damaged.
