Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Momotaro MS044DS Work Shirt is a vintage-inspired piece produced from an 8 oz. sanforized and washed Japanese Selvedge Denim using hand cultivated, long-staple 100% Organic Zimbabwe Cotton. With an indigo dyed warp and tinted charcoal weft over natural core yarns, commemorated with the brand's "Going to Battle” painted sleeve stripes, this piece will develop subtle fading patterns with repeated wears and washes. Using a work shirt pattern with a standard fit, this piece is perfectly proportioned in length to be worn untucked for modern, heritage-styled grit. The Work Shirt has plenty of considered elements that turn back the clock like the point collar with dual buttoned throat latch, a flap front buttoned chest pocket that pairs to an open patch buttoned chest pocket with pencil slot for storing various tools of the trade, all paired with design-centric construction details like a lined button front placket, contrast double and triple chainstitching with inseam run-off, a selvedge line side gusset, and internal felled seams with bartack reinforcement throughout. Representing one of the most esteemed Japanese producers in heritage, this hardwearing Momotaro combines celebrated propriety selvedge denim, precise craftsmanship, and refined reproduction with modern elements to yield a timeless mainstay in any wardrobe that is special when new, and only gets better as it becomes one's own.
