Studio D'Artisan - Sashiko Denim Type II Jacket - Indigo O/W
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 jacket lined with a hickory 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 indigo you're still going to get those incredible highs and lows in the elbows. The great part about sashiko is you get varied high points throughout the jacket 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.

Fit Notes: This jacket could be considered trim, but we actually find them to have plenty of room. Tommy is wearing a 40 in the pictures. The only thing you might want to be cautious of when buying your true size is the length. Tommy is 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest, and typically wears a North American Medium.
