Spellbound "Aged" Selvedge Chambray Long Sleeve Workshirts


In our recent shipment from Spellbound's S/S 2011 collection, we received a series of well crafted work shirts and button downs. Spellbound garments feature a high level of Japanese craftsmanship and today we will examine the "aged" slevedge chambray work shirts.

Domingo, the company behind Spellbound, own and operate vintage triple needle sewing machines which date back to the early 1900's. Only a few of these vintage machines are still in operational condition today, not to mention actually being used to make garments. These machines are capable of a very narrow triple needle construction which provides superior strength and subtle design details creating beautiful garments. Spellbound combines this triple needle construction with quality fabrics creating well-made garments that will with stand time.

The chambray fabric used is made on vintage shuttle looms and selvedge details can be seen under the placket and along the vents. The fabric has been pre-washed creating the natural wrinkled look and a soft feel.

Triple needle stitching can be seen along the shoulders, arm holes, and through the garment.
