eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons x Brooks Bros Shirt
eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Man x Brooks Brothers Indigo-dyed Chambray Creased Shirt
A Brooks Brothers indigo-dyed chambray long-sleeved shirt as customized by eYe JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARÇONS MAN for the Autumn — Winter 2010 — 2011 season collection. The shirt was crafted by re-working an existing Brooks Brothers long-sleeved shirt originally sewn of premium indigo-dyed chambray (lightweight denim) fabric into an informal slim-cut shirt with a rounded hem.
The shirt features a button-down collar, as originally introduced by Brooks Brothers in 1896, with points buttoned down by buttons on the front of the shirt. The yoke of the shirt is made of coarsely woven 100% wool tweed and lined in a camouflage-patterned light-weight cotton fabric in a dark green and brown colourway. Military-style khaki ripstop cotton and nylon blend fabric inserts are positioned on the back of the sleeves and armpits. The side seams at the hem are reinforced by small, triangular shaped hem gussets made of the same ripstop material.
The lower parts of the sleeves and the patch-type front pocket are made of a lighter-shade washed chambray fabric. The striking effect achieved by use of different fabrics with contrasting textures and colours is further enhanced by triple-stitching the seams in white. The patch-type chest pocket is reminiscent of utility pockets found on workwear rather than formal attire and has a pen hole embroidered in red. Pieces of contrasting white cotton band are applied onto the seams where the collar and cuffs of the original shirt would have been cut so as to make them fit the re-worked cut of the shirt.
The shirt is garment-washed and intentionally creased. The indigo dye has transferred from the main chambray fabric onto other fabrics used on the shirt, which is most readily observed on lighter-coloured details, such as the band on the collar and cuffs, white stitching and the original Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece (a sheep suspended in a ribbon) logo embroidered in white on the chest.
The shirt features original Brooks Brothers-branded buttons throughout and carries dual branding — an eYe JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARÇONS MAN label alongside the original navy Brooks Brothers label with the Golden Fleece logo and the Brooks Brothers established 1818 wording embroidered in gold.
Fabric composition: 100% cotton, attached fabric is 50% wool, 37% cotton and 13% nylon.
