Studio D'Artisan - Sashiko Denim Vest - Indigo, Kakishibu. Well, we decided to start off with a bang for our intro into the world of Studio D'artisan. If you know us well, you know how well we love Kakishibu (especially when it's mixed with Indigo). Add sashiko into the mix and you can call us finished. This fabric has our ticket. It's everything we love in Japanese manufacturing. Kakishibu dates back to the time of the Samurai nearly 900 years ago. This particular process has often been referred to as the sun-dye because it gets darker when exposed to light in the dying process. This round, they've gone with a crowd-pleaser. Indigo warp and kakishibu weft in a sashiko woven pattern. This fabric will be sought after for all time. We love the way it looks up front but may love the way it looks even further down the line. You can see some of the electric blues popping already from the one wash. We can only imagine how beautiful it will be with months and years of wear.

Fit Notes: Most of our Japanese brands are considered to have a small fit. These in particular are built to be close to the body. That being said, Tommy stuck to his true size of a 40, or medium for the pictures. These vests are built for layering. If you're worried about the tighter fit, it's always smart to size up. Tommy is 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest.

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.
