Japan Blue Jeans - Banana Cotton Cote d'Ivoire Type II Jacket - Indigo

So we've been obsessed with Japan Blues Jackets after experiencing the Type 4 Ivory Coast piece. This one is quite a nice change-up. Being a Type II, it's a little more minimalist by nature. We're talking two, smaller chest flap pockets and no hand warmers like intended. This can be worn as a mid-layer in the colder months or a final layer in the spring/fall. The banana fiber is what really did it for us here. It gives the item a natural, non-forced snowy look that happens from all the loose banana fibers. What you achieve is instant texture gratification. We're also talking immediate softness! No stiff starchy beginnings on this piece. Just smooth sailing into Spring. These are fitting just a little different than the type 4 version, so pay close attention to the size chart. 

This fabric is ethically source. Banana trees are usually harvested then burned yearly. This saves those trees to be turned into fabric, one 1.5-2 times longer staple than cotton. They worked tirelessly to mix this fiber with their Cote d'Ivoire denim.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 40 or Medium in this piece. Like the rest of JBJ, this is slim but no more than usual. We have been seeing people size up one in this jacket. This thing has been rinsed so expect minimal to no shrinkage (especially if you beat it up and stretch it out first). This piece is a bit shorter than the 13.5oz modified type 4 version of it.

Studio D'Artisan - "Amami Dorozome" Heavyweight Check Flannel Shirt - Brown.

The last time we saw this flannel it was dyed with Kakishibu. We didn't think that could be topped, but you know how much we love mud. Amami Dorozome is an age-old process done on the island of Amami-Oshima in Japan. It's a blend of mud and vegetable oil that creates rich earth tones in a washed-out, well-worn pigment only achievable through this process. In a traditional cotton check pattern such as this, it shines its brightest. We didn't get our hands on this personally last time, but we aren't going to let this one slip through our fingers.

Studio D'Artisan - 15.5oz Black O/W Sashiko Denim Jeans - Relaxed Taper.

These guys keep one-upping the Sashiko game every year. We didn't get a chance to see these in person, but we're so glad we picked them up. They are so much better than we could've even imagined. At first sight, they look like a denim pant lined with a hickory stipe screen print. Then, we got close up and realized it was the vertical sashiko creating that line work. The hand-feel after the one-wash is beyond soft, but they're still packed with so much color you're still going to get those incredible highs and lows in the knees. The great part about sashiko is you get varied high points throughout the garment that catch wear in a different way. The inspiration for sashiko garments derives from the Japanese sashiko which never truly died. They would use pieces of the last garment to create the new, hand stitching throughout. Well, they've taken this concept and created a modern work of art. They've used a combination of No.6 warp and No.5 weft yarns on specially calibrated Jacquards looms. Their hope is to replicate the Sashiko stitchwork of the kimonos, and we'd say they've accomplished that pretty damn well.

Iron Heart - 13oz Military Serge Western Shirt - Brown.

The only thing that could've improved this serge western was a new color. This one was originally called Mocha Brown, which we think is very suitable. It's this rich color that suits this now iconic shirt. It used to be that we rarely saw green from Iron Heart, but now green is a staple. So, we've been super stoked to see khakis and browns rearing their pretty heads. You can't go wrong with the western cut, unless you don't size up, as it has some absolutely gorgeous details. We love the yokes and Permex buttons the most on these beauties.
