The Brace Stretch Oxford - Pigment Dark Green

SKU 0018517PDG-S

By carefully studying vintage military shirts, we have infused some of the essential “DNA” of the originals into our quintessential shirt. Being true to Kato form, we wanted this piece to be as comfortable as it is tough, so we used a 95% cotton, 5% Polyurethane fabric that has a bit of give where it is needed.

This fabric has been pigment dyed using the garment dying method. This creates the aged look of the vintage military shirts that are treasured by collectors. The brace features two flap pockets and vintage style Cat’s Eye buttons.

The chainstitch runoff found on the side gussets is an interesting detail and a nod to vintage shirts. Early workwear shirts were made with authentic high quality sewing machines that produced this run off effect when finished. These would usually get cut off in production but would sometimes be missed. Vintage collectors would find these rarities and they became highly sought after, not only for its rarity but because it was a true sign that a shirt is made using authentic vintage sewing machines. We made Kato work shirts following the footsteps of these vintage treasures and the chainstitch runoff is a testament to its quality and heritage. You can choose to wear them with pride or cut them off with no compromise in durability.

95% cotton, 5% Polyurethane

• Made in USA

• The model is 5'11" and wearing the size M.

The color, the build quality, the fit, the details... I love everything about this shirt. Curious how it will look after several washings. I hope they will add more color options in the future. I have gotten already all of the available ones.

Rugged and Classy, extremely high quality

Kato killed it with the Brace, it juxtaposes all the best parts of workwear with class and comfort. It's tough, yet soft and comfortable. It's rugged, yet has a very smart and classy cut to it. Overall just gives off a very 'effortless' style that I love. Can be worn camping or as a casual overshirt, or buttoned up and pass for a nice shirt in the office. I've gotten similar style shirts from various mall brands before for fractions of the price, but I definitely notice the quality on this is significantly higher and will last for much longer. The color options are awesome too.

Own a couple of the Rippers in Double Gauze and while they serve different purposes and I think the Ripper is probably a more versatile 'every occasion' wear, this shirt has been my favorite since I like heavy weight clothing.

Fits TTS - 5'[****] lbs and this fit is spot on.

Amazing shirt

Kato may not have many style’s but the ones they have are executed to perfection. Excellent fit, fantastic color, and as always great customer service. I love the chain stitch runoff, but if I had one complaint I’d say the run-offs were a tad too long. The blue corduroy brace might be the next purchase.

Thanks for the great feedback, Daniel! We're so glad you're enjoying the shirt - we love the color and fit too!
