A fresh take on Eco-friendly shirt made from deadstock. Charles the designer upcycles to create this Eco collection. Inspired by the Northern Thailand’s clothing, he repurposes a button-down shirt into this new every day classic. The asymmetrical front and chest pocket is a nod to its predecessor.

  • Straight hem can be worn half tucked, all tucked, or untucked.
  • 57% Cotton, 40% Polyester, 3% Spandex.

Very cool summery shirt!


I am ridiculously and annoyingly sensitive to fabric textures and fit, so I often stick to Uniqlo for that. However, their clothes unravel easily and they're just not as well made. And then I got this. It is the most comfortable, most stylish piece of casual clothing I've ever worn. Besides being eco-friendly and chic, it fits my androgynous aesthetic and sensitive comfort needs. 100% highly recommended!

Why ECO Collection

Waste and overproduction are major problems in the fashion industry. The environmental impact on our planet is the opposite of gentle; as a designer, this does not sit well with me.

I view sustainability as my personal responsibility. Instead of producing more styles this year, I have looked inward and directed my attention to what I can do with my current stock. Therefore, I gave myself a challenge to create.

Made in San Francisco, please join me on this journey of how I took a button down shirt and transform it into an Eco Collection
