Here’s another one for your post-plaid arsenal: a little trick called Ikat.

This cotton button-up from Burkman Brothers just arrived at Odin bearing a new far-flung fabric trick. Ikat is a pre-loom dyeing process you don’t find much in the states anymore, but it’s used in traditional weaves from Bolivia to Uzbekistan. The result is one of the more interesting patterns in stores, just exotic enough to keep your wardrobe cosmopolitan.

We knew all that world-traveling would pay off at some point.
