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.
The Type 434 Buggy Back Shirt has been cut from ecru cotton calico dopple striped with 25 dips ringspun indigo cotton weft, custom woven in England.
This piece has been dyed with Indian Black, which is derived from a naturally occurring iron oxide from India. This pigment has been used in the west since 77CE and is thought to be the original source of lamp black and India ink.
As with all natural colours, Indian Black is less predictable than modern synthetic dyes and any colour transfer, inconsistency, irregularity, or fading is a desirable characteristic.
Model is 5'11" and wears size 2/S
