Hong Kong’s CLOT wanted to create a special garment which could effectively transcended eastern and western culture to create a united garment. The by-product of this achievement yielded the CLOT Royale Western shirt. In recent memory, the Japanese market has often taken the Western shirt and reinterpreted it as their own. For CLOT, the problem lied on how CLOT could create a product that could cater to the local market. Traditional Western shirts often utilize a denim yoke. To give the product an inherent Chinese feel, CLOT went the route of silk on the yoke. The use of silk is accompanied by careful selection of the flannel design and detailed buttons. In the end, CLOT managed to offer an updated and elegant reinspiration on timeless classic. This shirt is set to release at Juice on Thursday, October 18th with a price tag of $1,780 HKD (approximately $230 USD).
