Denim Shirt (3 Year Wash)


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


Founded in Tokyo Japan in 2005, FDMTL has established themselves as one of the premier brands of Japanese denim, particularly for their boro and sashiko work. A truly Japan-made brand, all manufacturing, down to the sewing and the fabric, are done entirely in Japan. Everything FDMTL makes is designed with the little details in mind, and a lot of little details at that. From the sashiko fabrics to the aging, wearing, and repairing of each piece, FDMTL wants everything they make to tell a story about how it came to be.

This denim workshirt been given FDMTL's 3 Year Wash treatment, so the fabrics have been washed down to an incredible softness from day one. FDMTL's aging process is slow, deliberate, and by their own admission, not efficient. The work is done incrementally, giving each finished piece a very naturally worn look. The development of each garment's look comes through trial and error, using the washing, distressing, and repairing to give every piece its own unique expression. 

Primarily sewn up in a washed, 100% cotton Japanese denim, this shirt has two chest pockets, as well as patchwork reinforcements sewn on in a variety of other 100% cotton, washed, indigo-dyed Japanese fabrics. There's also a bit of sashiko reinforcement on some of the more faded areas of the shirt.

A simple denim shirt with a non-traditional shape. Cut with wide, dropped shoulders and a relaxed chest, it's a comfortably roomy shirt that looks and fits best when worn untucked.

Fits true to size. No shrinkage expected with cold wash & hang dry.
