Teaming up with a brand that has 40+ years of creating some of Japan's finest Selvedge garments while using a coveted fabric that we've worked with over the past few seasons and grown to love. Stepping out of our own comfort zone, this dream project of creating the perfect piece of Indigo outerwear allowed us to consider design cues outside the realm of your standard 5 pocket jeans.
Kasezome is the art of skein dyeing, a hand dyeing method by wrapping undyed yarns into a loose coil and dipping them into a vat of Indigo (in this instance). The yarns are dyed to the core while still retaining their original texture, a feat only possible when the yarns are meticulously dyed by hand.
Following our design ethos that makes an OD+ piece unique, we wanted to have something special tucked into the jacket just for the wearer/owner to enjoy.
We toyed around with indigo discharge fabrics, linen & canvas to use as possible lining material for the jacket, but eventually came across a few vintage Sukajan (Souvenir Jackets) during the design process, and the rest is history.
Cue the finest jacket liner we've had come through the doors. We took a Rayon heavy fabric that is usually reserved for Souvenir Jackets (or Sukajan), and had the entire inner of the jacket lined with the subtle, yet supreme, inlay.
Applying a 70% Rayon / 30% Cotton textile to line the entire jacket & pockets, a color best described as sand gold was selected to line this piece. Selvedge details are littered throughout the item, from the locker loop sewn into the inner collar, the Selvedge ID featured on the inner chest pocket, and of course the ID running up the inner side of the zipper. The Zipper pull tabs were custom produced for this piece from a tanned cowhide leather, featuring a contrast gold color zig-zag stitch detail.
