Buggy Back Airbag Cambric Shirt

Red

USD 101.25 (Tax Free)

Description

The Buggy Back Shirt takes its unusual shape and name from a traditional British Tailoring technique for lining casual sports jackets. Rather than fully lining the jacket, the fronts are lined but the back is ‘buggy lined’ with triangles of lining fabric set into the shoulder seams, overlapping at the centre The Buggy Back Shirt has no side seams- the fronts wrap around and overlap into the opposite side’s back armhole. Large front hand pockets allow the shirt to be pulled down and worn as a jacket. The high back allows easy access to back jeans pockets and can be layered with a T-Shirt or a button down tail shirt.

Always seeking or creating new and inspired cloths, the shirt itself has been cut from a custom cotton woven in England with split faces using the technique used for car airbags.

This piece has been dyed with Red Ochre, a naturally occurring earth pigment with a history that goes back as far as 75000 years. First signs of its use are in Blombos Cave in South Africa where the pigment can be seen in drawing on the cave walls. In the 18th Century, English fish boats had their sales ‘barked’ with a blend of tar, oak bark liquor, fat and red ochre. This was in order to protect the fabric from sea water and had a side effect of staining the sails a deep red-brown: the same colour as this garment.

As with all natural colours, Red Ochre is less predictable than modern synthetic dyes and any colour transfer, inconsistency, irregularity, or fading is a desirable characteristic.
