The special weaving technique alternates between highly twisted and intentionally looser twisted yarns creating a unique dry touch. Our new lightweight natural cotton fabric is custom made in Japan. Pre-washed to fit comfortably the first time you wear this shirt. Garment dyed so that with use it will age beautifully. We made this shirt for everyday freedom. Handmade in Japan.
100% cotton Japan made fabric. With repeated washings it will become one of the softest items in your closet. No fillers or interfacing used in this shirt. All thickness is created with luxurious tightly woven fibers and layered fabric. This is more difficult to make but results in a shirt that will age better. We noticed this is the way 1920s vintage workwear was made and what gave those classic pieces their reliability. Our buttons are completely unbleached and natural shell. Each button is hand shaped to create a unique matte texture.

Original spiral sleeve
Ordinary shirt sleeves are essentially long tubes. When you move your arm, the typical sleeve may flex a bit but still pull at the seam, resulting in limited motion and the risk of ripping your shirt. Stretch fabrics can be used but natural cotton feels so much better. To eliminate the typical stiffness we started with sketches and prototypes made from paper (we love paper). We then worked with an expert pattern maker and craftspeople in Japan to make many samples to get the shirt we dreamed of wearing. This shirt is made in a Japanese workshop with over 40 years of experience.
・After dyed garments have variations in color.
・Straight, relaxed fit.
・Full length sleeves with two button barrel cuffs for adjustability.
・Woven in Japan, this soft fabric is a tightly woven combination of smooth and textured threads creating a unique look and soft touch.
・Prewashed and garment shrunk to shape for exceptional softness.
・Shirt tail hem
・Angled pleats on back along with our original "spiral shoulder" construction for maximum movement.
Our Bodies Are Incomplete
Humans don't have claws or fur, so we need to make up for what’s missing with objects. People are complex and our needs are layered. If the objects we use are well made, they will last longer and we won’t need as many of them. ‘Less but better’, as Dieter Rams said. The tools we touch every day should not only work, but also age well.
Lightweight natural cotton is created in Japan. The special weaving technique applied alternates between highly twisted yarns and intentionally looser twist yarns creates a unique ‘dry’ touch. This weaving technique helps give the fabric a crisp feeling but still allows improved breathability and lightness for comfort.
Learning from Japan
The craftspeople, suppliers, and small workshops found in Japan make things not to be found anywhere else. We are fortunate to work with family businesses that are so focused on their craft. Don’t put Postalco items on a shelf or in a drawer. Their beauty is revealed through daily use. They will help you feel good at home and be ready in a meeting.
