The BWS-03 MILITARY OVERSHIRT is a versatile shirt silhouette that can both function as shirt and jacket, depending on the season. This makes this overshirt perfect for layering. The design is simple yet utilitarian and takes inspiration from a 60s military shirt style. It features two large chest pockets with rectangular flaps and two handwarmer pockets. The cuff slits are finished with a continuous strip for durability, and the bottom is cut straight.

This fabric is part of our limited edition selvedge program. We’ve partnered up with Candiani Denim to create a series of exclusive pieces. The collection blends selvedge denim heritage and upcycling sustainability. We’ve used a selection of Candiani deadstock and surplus fabrics, to make six garments: a chino, two overshirts, a brand-new type II jacket in two fabrics, and a new iteration of our recent collab with Bonne Suits.

The 12 oz. midnight blue selvedge is a super dark indigo x black denim fabric. Because of its dark appearance (it has an indigo dyed warp and a black weft) the fabric is quite clean and formal looking. However, it has an amazing fading potential because eventually the white core of the indigo dyed yarns will get exposed with wear and wash, creating a super high contrast fading pattern. It might take a bit longer than average, but the end results of these type of fabrics are always stunning.
