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 like about 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 Bridge Pocket Square Tail Shirt is based on the type 422 Square Tail Shirt made by Tender previously, with large pockets bridging the front panels and caught into a reversed placket at the front, and the seams at the side.

This version of the Bridge Pocket Shirt is dyed in Chlorophyll, from the Greek for green leaf. A pigment that was first isolated in 1817 by Pierre Joseph Pelletier and Joseph Bienaimé Caventou. It quickly denatures (as when vegetables are overcooked) to become khaki or brown with that it is quite a difficult pigment to obtain. Chloropyll imparts a delicate green, softer than mineral dyes such as viridian or verdigris, and cleaner than mixed greens like those derived from turmeric and indigo.

The fabric is a 100% cotton woven in England. Belisha beacons were introduced to British pedestrian road crossings in 1934 by the Minister of Transport Leslie Hoare-Belisha. They consist of a flashing yellow lamp at the top of a striped black and white pole. Belisha Stripe fabric is woven on an ecru cotton warp with wide bands of ecru cotton and Japanese indigo-dyed weft yarns, matching the proportions of a Belisha beacon. The indigo yarn will fade and bleed as the garment wears in and is washed, softening the stripe edges.

The garment has been washed to prevent it from shrinkage and it makes the pigment come to life in the most beautiful way.
