Kakure Selvedge Overshirt
I’m really happy with the lane I’ve found with the overshirt idea; it’s such an easy piece with endless ways to style it. I still have a small roll of the Candiani denim that I used for the Akiko Jeans, so it was an easy decision to make a version with that.
Keeping the theme of showing off the selvedge line, I wanted to make a style that was even more minimal so there’d be a bigger surface area for wear to show up over time. The first overshirt proto I made from a women’s jegging material (I still have it and wear it all the time), that had hidden seam pockets that were held up by the bottom snap on the front of the shirt and sewn into the stitching line of the hem. A few small adjustments to the pattern and I made myself my new daily driver.
