TROPHY CLOTHING SPRING/SUMMER '21
This week we took delivery of a shirt that we have been really looking forward to receiving for quite some time, the 401 Deluxe Wabash Shirt from Trophy Clothing. Wabash fabric is not uncommon, it's a staple of every vintage reproduction brand's lineup, so where the real difference can be made is in the details, subtle features and overall construction of the garment.
DELUXE WABASH SHIRT
The 401 is a Trophy Clothing classic and has been in production since the very early days of the brand’s conception. Inspired by traditional shirting of the 1930s, the design captures the essence of this era with a high collar, curved back yoke and button-down chest pockets.
The wabash pattern is achieved by bleaching dotted stripes onto the face of the fabric. Over time, as the fabric fades with wear, the contrast between the dots and the dyed fabric becomes less apparent, to what extent, will be unique to each individual owner.
One of our favourite features about the 401 is its intricately designed collar which has a three-point button-down construction, that when fastened creates a super sharp, traditional silhouette.
OD LONG SLEEVE POCKET TEES
These long-sleeved t-shirts use fabric sewn on a machine usually set up to weave a thicker fabric for sweatshirts.
The unique texture in the Tenjiku knitted fabric is achieved using 20 single yarns on the face of the fabric and 30 on the reverse. The left and right yarns are then alternately exchanged at regular intervals during construction to alleviate any skew that may occur after the garment has been washed.
SPORTSWEAR OD L/S POCKET TEE
If you were looking for a branded alternative to the OD L/S Pocket Tee then adding Trophy's iconic 'Sportswear' logo to the back is the perfect solution.
The deep gun black colour tone is achieved by overdyeing the garment post-construction using sulphur dye, a method that will cause the tee to age and fade uniquely.
