With the silhouette of a big retro bowling shirt, the Greetings Shirt is a boxy fit, oversized button up. Featured in white with hand block printed stars in washed blue, burgundy, and violet — a technique in which a block is dipped in an ink, and used to stamp a pattern on the fabric. This is a pretty simple concept when using modern inks, but when working with natural dyes the chemistry and technique is entirely different and often confusingly complicated to the uninitiated. Precious namesake "mfg" hand embroidered below the singular left chest pocket, and gradual button colour gradient of black-blue-white from the neck collar down.
Fall/Winter 2022, "Try Try Try" sees STORY again tinkering with natural dyes (including hues derived from soil, plants, and berries) and demonstrating the breadth of its artisan craftspeople's painstaking craft with a lush spread of time-consuming creations.
