After uncovering a crisp, cotton faille fabric we’re utterly mad about, we were inspired to create The Asymmetrical Pleat Shirt. A finely textured, 100% cotton woven material, it appears striped–thanks to its beautiful, light gray-and-white ribbing–which incidentally holds a perfect pleat.
Fashioned with a fit similar to our popular Pique Popover, our Asymmetrical Pleat Shirt is a button-down shirt style with mother-of-pearl buttons that extend from collar to tail. Why the name? Could it be that a set of five pleats we added just to one side of the covered front button placket creating a fun asymmetrical detail?
Appointed with a classic point collar and front breast pocket, this boyfriend-style shirt also features 4-inch long, single-button cuffs with a covered sleeve placket to conceal the buttons beneath.
If you carry more weight in your chest, waist, and hips, you might wish to order the next size up. In any case, it’s best to check the “Sizing Details” tab—in The Tool Kit—to ascertain this shirt’s dimensions and determine which size will suit you best. (Fan of the His is Hers Original Shirt? Why not compare the two sizing charts to get a better idea of the perfect fit for you?)
