Of All Trades
With the level of plaid in your closet set to reach eye-popping levels, it may be time for a new trick. Naturally, we’ve got one in mind.
It’s time to reacquaint yourself with jacquard.
It’s a weaving trick that lets you work bumps and ridges straight into the cloth, resulting in seersucker-style ventilation. You may have seen the shinier silk version on ties or some of the world’s flashier tuxedos, but we’re thinking of something a little earthier.
This Engineered Garments shirt puts a simpler fabric through the same intricate weaving to end up with a texture that looks like something you might have seen onstage at the Fillmore East in 1971. Not a bad place to find inspiration.
