The brand have adapted the ergonomics of the original garment to fit into a contemporary wardrobe. Details include flatweave front and rear adjusters with drawstring at hem and cuffs

TSPTR Dry Goods, so named in reference to mid century dry goods stores that specialized in products such as textiles, ready-to-wear clothing, and sundries. A time when clothing was well made and functional, using quality cloth and trims, when form followed function. Constructed using Portuguese cotton twill. For over a century the world’s finest cottons have been made in the hill towns of Portugal. When compared to other cottons, Portuguese twill is consistently softer, stands up far better to repeated washings without pilling or growing thin.
