As an homage to Jules Dassin, the blacklisted and recently-deceased director of the 1960 film Pote Tin Kyriaki (Never on Sunday), Self Edge's newest concept shirt is a reproduction of the same shirt the protaganist, Homer, wears toward the end of the narrative.
Made of 9-oz black denim from Cone Denim's White Oak collection out of North Carolina, the western style shirt features vintage deadstock buttons, hand stitched button holes and alternating blue and white button holes on the cuff to represent Greece. (The movie was filmed in Piraeus Greece in 1958.) Pocket flaps incorporated in the pattern add subtle detail finished off with button accents. All in all, it's a great everyday shirt.
