Hentsch Man Unveil New Collection
One of our favourite brands, Hentsch Man has created a new, limited edition line of shirts, available now.
Launched in 2008 by childhood friends Alexia Hentsch and Max von Hurter, the brand had the sole mission to create the perfect white shirt – the holy grail of menswear if there ever was one. Since then, the brand has grown, each season presenting collections that offer a diverse and casually tailored selection of garments that would suit the modern gent in a host of scenarios.
Cast your mind back to London Collections: Men in June this year when the Hentsch Man presentation (one of the strongest of the season) featured lounging gauchos donning lightly coloured chinos, printed shirts and straw hats with cigarettes, beer and battered Converse. Whilst the brand has grown, the original values of good tailoring and price remain at the core.
Shirting and print are very much the bread and better of Hentsch Man so a limited edition of shirts does not come as a great surprise. The mini collection is inspired by Japan and consists of four pieces, on which the prints and indigo colour are reminiscent of summer kimonos.
The shirts have all been indigo dyed, block printed and created in 100% cotton which turns the Japanese kimono into a timeless Western shirt. The dark shades and casual fit make them a great autumn/ winter shirt.
Print and getting print right has always been integral to the brand. The limited edition shirts feature a variety of prints which include a small floral design, a wave pattern, a classic check print and our favourite of the bunch – the sombre navy blue drop print variation which looks like tiny little white polka dots.
