Navy Linen Stripe Overshirt
This item is final sale and not eligible for return or exchange.
As the blazer death knell rings, and your blazers move deeper into your closet or into the coffin-like box next to your closet, our linen overshirts are natural replacements. Certainly one can wear solid canvas and solid linen overshirts, but what fun is that? Looking back at 1950s blazer-clad men, you'd find ebullient plaids and patterns, and this should be applied to the modern blazer of today - the overshirt.
This overshirt features a woven, narrow ticking stripe over a navy base. This white ticking stripe gives the overshirt texture and body, the dark navy is good for those out there who want something a bit...darker.
- 100% Linen
- Washed for softness and drapeyness
- Made responsibly in India

What does responsibility mean? People talk a lot about transparency and sustainability. I think the sum is responsibility. For Corridor, this means that we actually work in the factory with the tailors every season to create the garments and ensure the workshops are environmentally certified (ISO 9001) and socially accountable (SA 8000). You can feel good knowing where and how the garment was made.
This garment was a made in 3rd generation, open air workshop with on site day care, garden, paying a living wage to the artisans who made the goods. The workshop is located in Madras, India and melds the new (Japanese sewing machines) and the old (hand embroidery, hand loomed fabrics, natural dying) for a product that is authentic and contemporary. This is a mostly woman operated factory and is partnered with a rehabilitation center for women encountering domestic violence. We work out of the workshop for approximately two months of the year.
