Regular price3 099 krSale
Tender is a one man brand based in England and the founder William Kroll continues to make beautiful clothes inspired by the history of durable workwear with a contemporary style.
What we appreciate when it comes to the aesthetics of Tender is that the appearance may look simple at first, but William is always adding smart and interesting details to the garments, combined with interesting textiles that feel great to wear. As far as possible all products are produced in England, from the weaving of the fabrics to cutting and sewing.
The Wallaby Shirt type 423 features deep scooped hems and two large wallaby patch pockets sewn into the hem, the kangaroopockets. The placket is reversed to hold the pocket fronts, and the false cuffs are sewn onto the outside of the sleeve panels, interpreting an early 20th Century British Rail uniform jacket.
Tender’s wattle dyed garments are made and dyed in England, using a warm red-brown dye extracted from Acacia Catechu. Acacia wood, also known as wattle, Mimosa, or Catchwood, is a thorny tree native to Australia, India and China. And has been used for thousands of years to tan leather and dye fabrics.
As with all natural dyes Wattle gives a more subtle color than modern synthetic dyes, and any inconsistencies, irregularities or fading are a desirable characteristic.
Douglas is 180 cm long and wears a size 4.
