NUDIE JEANS VINCENT HICKORY STRIPE SHIRT - WHITE/INDIGO
The hickory stripe is one of the iconic American workwear fabrics — if not the most. It was favoured by railroad workers and painters as the stripes would obscure stains. The catchy but odd name is believed to refer to the fabric's hard-wearing properties; because it is ""tough as hickory."" Other excellent details are the cream-coloured threads, and the blue corozo buttons.
And while it is indeed tough, it is compared to denim that's flatter and lighter in weight due to the thinner yarn and flatter 2/1 construction. Therefore, it's perfect for workwear where comfort is of importance.
Nudie have developed this 8.5 oz. 2/1 Z hickory stripe denim by studying their favourite vintage examples. The 2/1 construction gives the indigo stripe an almost solid mid-blue colour. To highlight the indigo blue hue, Nudie purposely made it wider. Which also creates a more pleasing balance between the stripes.
