I have a natural affinity for oversized button-downs. However, there are a few elements of traditional button-downs that I dislike and that I know wouldn't work with our manufacturing process.

Instead, the Long Sleeve Kara Snap Top eschews traditional stand collars, visible buttons, and sleeve cuffs with pleating. What remains is the suggestion of this classic garment and its spirit, but with all the comfort, ease, and simplicity that are the hallmarks of ES clothing.

This long-sleeve, midi-length, snap-front tunic-length top skews masculine, feminine, and everywhere in between. It works in almost any setting—worn to an evening affair or the beach as a coverup. I wanted to capture the timelessness and the nostalgia; a crisp button-down is a constant throughout history and in most people's closets today, but this universal silhouette somehow still has the ability to intrigue. I picture an obscure artist in a billowing tunic with rolled-up sleeves, an eccentric professor with shirttails over wool trousers, or a brilliant writer in a sunlit apartment, clad only in a rumpled shirt with no time for pants.

Medium-duty snaps are sewn inside the placket, so they're invisible. Easy and accessible to open, sturdy enough to not pull apart on accident. Wear closed or open, and fasten as many or as few snaps as you like. Form and function in true harmony!

Named in collaboration with Aja Barber after the contemporary artist Kara Walker, who we envision wearing this style in the studio.

Flax
A neutral to end all neutrals. Our Flax Linen is the undyed, natural color of the fiber. The color can vary from the palest beach sand to uncooked oatmeal with flecks of warm spices to a taupe putty with grey undertones. We challenge you to find a pairing color Flax linen doesn’t bring out the best in.


Black
With the natural variations in the weave of true linen, our Black is anything but basic. Unworn, this forever shade holds the saturation of soot and tar. If you wash and tumble dry, over time you’ll see a bit more fading around the seams, giving a lived-in, favorite tee look.

Olive
Like a drizzle of the nicest bottle of olive oil in your pantry, this shade of our Midweight Linen is a Mediterranean-inspired pop of earth. Wash and dry it for years and it will still retain the most beautiful lichen-esque hue. Pairs effortlessly with neutrals like our Flax Midweight Linen.

Navy
Possibly the cooler little sister to Black, our Navy Midweight Linen is a color of substance. It can read almost black in a certain light, but its true essence is an inky midnight blue. It fades over time, wash, and wear like your favorite dark denim, which makes us love it all the more.

Terra
This savory shade of Midweight Linen is spicy chili oil in fabric form. The bold hue remind us of the magical red clay of Oaxaca, Mexico, but there's also a nod to the slightly softer orange shades of mimolette cheese or cantaloupe. For a balanced look, we often pair our Flax Midweight Linen with Terra, but a monochromatic Terra top and bottom is our idea of a modern power suit.

Ivory
Our not-too-white white Midweight Linen. A shade of white that won't blind you, nor does it get dingy looking after wear or wash. The undertones are very subtle and warm, akin to white rice. Our Ivory reads as crisp and clean, especially with a quick press of the iron. Slightly transparent, we prefer tops and dresses in Ivory.

Long Sleeve Kara Snap Top Highlights

1. The invisible snap closures are easy to use and give the top a streamlined look. Wear this style open as a jacket or snapped up for a true top.

2. A collarless neckline eliminates fuss (and the ever-frustrating make-up transfer!).

3. The slightly a-line silhouette provides plenty of room for movement and ease.

4. A subtle drop-shoulder provides a relaxed fit through the shoulder and bicep.

5. The wrist-length sleeves look great worn down but also roll without adding bulk.

6. The topstitched armscyes and back yolk give this style added durability and polish.

7. A customer (and Liz!) favorite for modest and accessible breastfeeding or pumping.
