Corridor’s FW18 brings a little bit of new and old for us. Returning is arguably one of their most well-known shirts, the Japanese Dot Indigo-Dyed Shirt. Ever the sophisticated shirt with a chic flare, we’d be hard pressed to say that a style of this kind should not be in everyone’s wardrobe. For the new, we are also stocking the Brown Heritage Plaid and the Indigo Blue Triple Check; both of these are custom-milled shirts that are a first for Corridor. As you will notice, the prices on these shirts come in at a lower price point, with Corridor moving a portion of their manufacturing to Madras, India. From their standpoint, they’ve found a team that they could trust and rely on for production of their shirting from the fabric to the finished product. We cannot argue with the two fabrics we’ve brought in as adding substantially to the creativity that this allows them. Naturally questions may arise regarding the quality, and that is something we will always pay attention to. Thus far, we’ve been pleased with the sewing and construction of their shirts, especially at the price they come in at that makes their shirting more accessible.
All that said, the three shirts for this first lookbook feature slightly different aesthetics that we thought would play differently in each person’s wardobe. As such, we visited three different local coffee shops that were well-suited for each individual piece. The Brown Heritage Plaid is the vintage-looking shirt for that heritage and homey look. The Indigo Blue Triple Check is the ‘tweener that pulls on the traditional check pattern while adding in a much-welcomed intricacy in the form of 10 yarn-dyed lines that adds an additional layer of visuals to the shirt. Lastly, the Japanese Dot is the modern shirt that you’ll want whenever you’re looking to dress and impress. Three different shirts for all.
