Fargo is a shirt/jacket made by the Swedish brand Indigofera. It's perhaps their most iconic garment and they have been making it in different variants ever since the brand was founded in 2007. The Fargo is best described as an unlined shirt/jacket in a clean cut that just keeps going. It is on the large side of the sizing-scale because it was initially intended to be worn as a jacket, so if you aim for a slimmer look you might want to go down one size from your usual preference. Check out the sizing scale below to be sure!
Fargo can be seen as the older brother of Copeland, wich has a similar look but is slimmer cut and has the pockets placed higher up.
This version of the Fargo is sewn in a broken twill fabric, wich means that it is woven in a mixture of right hand and left hand twill. This creates a zig-zag pattern that can be seen easiest on the back of the fabric, and that is characteristic for broken twill. The fabric was invented in order to prevent the "leg twist", a phenomenon that appears when raw denim jeans are washed for the first time. When the fabric gets wet, the fibers in a raw denim twill will start to twist in the direction of the twill, resulting in a side seam that twists around the leg.
Broken twill, however, does not have this problem because there are no continuous twill direction in the fabric, so even if the fibers do twist, they are met by fibers that twist the other way.
Fargo is perfect to wear as a jacket over a t-shirt in warm weather or with a warm wool knit when it gets cold. It is sparingly ornamented, which makes it easy to combine with other garments.
