This heritage plaid hails from Thomas Mason, the first name in fine shirting since 1796 (their fabrics have been a long-time favorite on London's Jermyn Street, the acknowledged shirt-making capital of the world). Originally produced over a century ago, this pattern was brought back to life by our design team after visiting the British shirt maker's archives in Italy. After combing through their library of over 200 historical prints (some dating back to the 1700s), we hand selected this plaid for its standout pattern, which feels just as fresh today as it did when it was first designed. Recreated exclusively for us with the same attention to detail that you expect from Thomas Mason, this limited-edition plaid can only be found here at J.Crew. Slim fit—a trimmer version of our regular fit that's cut more narrowly through the body and sleeves.
