Reminder on the brand Flag Black
If there is indeed a French brand that has had an acclaimed launch, this is it (we also tested the brand Black Flag with great pleasure).
The trademark was founded by a former lawyer, Nicolas Barbier. It is someone sensitive to a very masculine imagination: the old mechanics to retaper, the freedom of the trip on motorcycle, clothes in raw materials, or even the male icons of old films.
The name of the brand refers to an ideal of wild and authentic freedom (a nod to the pirates and anarchists), although the brand has no political message at all.
This “raw” side of Black Flag translates into using Japanese materials because Nicolas as we appreciate this very special textures and colors.
He wanted to create the clothing brand that he could not find in the shop: this very masculine, simple and timeless cloakroom, with impeccable materials, while remaining easy to match.
That is what we were interested in. We just wanted a casual shirt, piece that we particularly appreciated in his first collection.
This is the starting point for this new BonneGueule collaboration.
A Japanese cotton flannel shirt
Before entering into details in the reasons, we are interested in the matter.
The fabric comes from a venerable Japanese supplier, which exists since 1949 (yes, the Japanese know very well to perpetuate their know-how). For the record, it is a company that began by making furoshikis, these pieces of decorated fabrics that serve to pack and transport various everyday objects…
As a reminder, if the flannel of wool is known by all, cotton flannel also exists. Basically, it is a twill fabric (so fabrics with classic weaves enough) that is slightly “scratched” in order to have that fluffy and slightly fuzzy appearance.
This fluffiness that the fabric does not “cold” contact to the touch, for a material that retains heat a little better than a poplin.
The use of a Japanese flannel is a very rare opportunity on the French market, because as we have mentioned several times, these are very laborious and expensive materials to import. Few French brands are therefore likely to use these materials (except if you can pay your shirt in € 200). It is therefore with great pride that we offer this shirt with this unique fabric.
Note: tissue products from this manufacturer are low, it was not possible to release a large number of shirts. It is for this same reason that the Drapeau Noir coins are quickly sold-out. For the coup we really wanted to order the double …
Details of shirt BGDN-01
As usual, we were very careful about the finishes: there are a few that you know well.
First, no casual shirt without reinforcement swallows (for strength and aesthetics) and last horizontal buttonhole (the latter reduces the voltage on the bottom of your shirt when you luxuriate after the holidays).
We chose a buttoned collar “button down”. It’s a neck often used for shirts in oxford, synonymous with a certain casualness , although it is quite possible to wear it with a knitted tie or wool.
We like this collar because it allows to plait the fabric even on materials rather flexible.
As for the cut, it is simply adjusted, you will not be disoriented.
It has been designed to be worn out of the pants (therefore rather short). We’re really on a casual cut. As for the shoulders, they are very clean and cut very clearly.
Of course the buttonholes are neat and will not let you go after three slightly aggressive unbuttonings (this does not give you the right to violate the shirt by using it as a furoshiki).
A shirt with a tartan pattern
Main characteristic of this shirt: its pattern. This is a tartan which is based on three colors: navy blue, gray, and white.
The tartan is composed of lines of several colors that reveals tiles of several sizes, with lines more or less dark (I hope I am clear …). If you want to know more about the tartan, I suggest you (re) read the article on Kinloch Anderson: the tradition of tartan.
It is interesting to see how a Japanese workshop appropriated this type of Scottish design.Finally, a contemporary tartan with very urban colors emerges. With white lines not too contrasted, and well integrated in the whole, but which structure the silhouette and give a bit of build.
In summary, we really wanted to get a piece workwear and masculine but never cliché of the lumberjack.
Which size to choose?
As usual, here’s a shirt that size very classic way.
I who make the M a little everywhere, it is of the M that me to perfection with this mark (the S is really too small, and the L is too big).
For the more anxious, you have prepared a table of measures, to come on the order page … But really, you do not have to take your head for size. So I insist on the fact that you simply have to choose your usual size.
When will BGDN-01 be available?
The launch will take place this Sunday, January 18 at 14h, via an email sent to newsletter subscribers (and only then publicly put online).
