We told you we had exciting news, and the folks over at Instagram are ready to blow the whistle. Master craftsman, mad genius, and loyal TGS friend, Michael Masterson was featured today on everyone’s favorite photo blog, and needless to say, his work never ceases to impress. Check out the full article below or by clicking the link!
MASTERSONs are coming soon to the shop, the one and ONLY place you’ll be able to source his limited edition, totally exclusive, handmade selvage shirts. Info@trovegeneral.com for inquiries / @trovegeneralstore for real time updates.
Michael Masterson, who has spent the past 3 years making clothes by hand, is embarking on his latest venture—Masterson’s, a limited-run batch of US and Japanese selvedge denim and chambray shirts—and bringing his Instagram followers along for the ride at @mastersons.
“I have a collection of over 25 machines, most more than 50 to 70 years old. It takes a lot of finesse and dexterity to keep the machine and stitch working properly,” he says. “Instagram is a quick and easy way to share the production process with people during a busy day. And I think it also helps give people an idea of the time that goes in to producing these shirts.”
To get a peek at the process, visit @mastersons. Because of Masterson’s limited production capacity, they will only be available through Trove General Store.
