When we had a chance to grab the Sumi dyed collab collection, we couldn't resist the tee-shirts. They were insistent that these tees were incredible, and they didn't lie. Surprisingly, the best part about these is the fit...and that's wild because the fabric is absolutely gorgeous. We think what makes this tee fit so well is the longer and wider body. We're finding more and more that a little more room is never a bad thing. We have more control when we can shrink something than when we're trying to get it to stretch. For these tees, they've created a very robust material of the highest quality. It's a slub yarn that intentionally creates thinner and thicker pieces to evoke a feeling of hand-spun yarn. The results speak for themselves. They used a count 8 yarn which is super thick for a t-shirt. They did all of this in the hopes that the material will hold its shape after many washes, and they fully accomplished that. For this round, they used different shades of Sumi (Japanese black ink used for calligraphy) to rope-dye the fabric which gives it great variations of black shades. The material is completely made in Japan including spinning, rope dyeing, knitting, and processing at their small mills. They have christened the fabric GYOTEN (暁天): the night before sunrise. The final touch on these is the chunky blue side seams and classic 二 embroidery on the right shoulder.

A variance of +/-.5" is within tolerance.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size large in the pictures. He tried on the medium, and it was just a bit too tight. The large was an absolutely perfect fit. It had a bit of room in the chest and the sleeves were just the right length. We recommend sizing up once to get the full effect of the wider and slightly longer silhouette. 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.
