Momotaro - Sashiko Type II Modified Jacket - Indigo
Crazily enough, we think we ordered this jacket many years ago and it never went into production. At least if memory serves us correctly, that's what happened. We never forgot about it, so when it rolled back in for pre-production we had to scoop it. We loved that it was a blueberry blue version of the jackets we've seen in the past. It has such a gorgeous royal blue, or natural indigo feel to it. And the GTB stripes are just the right saturation. The wash process has definitely knocked down some of the color. But have no fear - these will still fade incredibly well. They've just given you a bit of a head start and in the process made a jacket that's a lot less volatile with an incredible drape. Oh, and we didn't even mention it's sashiko!

Fit Notes: We find these fit pretty slim. Normally Tommy wears a 40 in Momo's type ii for the shoots, but decided to give himself a little more room and go up to a 42 on this round. It gave him much more of a comfortable fit overall in the shoulders, length, and body. We would highly recommend sizing up once. If you want a classic, slim fit type ii look...go with your true size. Tommy's typical Japanese size is a L or 42 and M or 40 in North American brands. He is 5'10", 165lbs with a 40" chest.
