Hand finished with immaculate precision, the philosopher shirt has been thoughtfully made, no effort spared in its tailoring and construction. Featuring a soft pointed collar, single breast pocket and deep side splits, it has set-in sleeves which taper to a beautiful row of tiny knife pleats at each buttoned cuff. Worn year round, this versatile shirt is equally comfortable at the office, studio, or market, a daily canvas upon which to layer your personal style, or the simplest of answers in a sea of choices: what to wear today?

LJ struthers

LJ struthers clothing is informed by insistence on comfort, commitment to craftsmanship, and the joy of self-expression we can all experience through dress. Life and work in different regions of Japan inspired Leonie to translate some of the traditional principles of Japanese design for an Australian context. Timeless, sculptural silhouettes are ideal for layering, while disciplined lines and simple shapes invites creative collaboration with the wearer. Textiles of extraordinary quality are at the heart of the label, and every style is cut and constructed in Hobart with due care, creating garments to enjoy for years to come.
