The Momotaro SJ191 Jail Pocket Shirt is a vintage-inspired piece produced from an 8 oz. sanforized and washed Japanese Selvedge Denim utilizing 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 Jail Pocket Shirt has plenty of considered elements that turn back the clock like the rounded pub collar with a throat latch, oversized patch chest pockets with side entry on the top half perfect for storing and accessing devices, and a lined button front placket with concealed buttoning halfway down, which are all paired with design-centric construction details like 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 highly 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.
