Country of Origin: United States
The Sashiko Doyle has quickly arisen to become the most popular and defining product of our Los Angeles-made collection. May we introduce our newest iteration: a gorgeous Marine Blue overdye with distinctive handsewn panels. Each piece is designed individually, and no two are alike. We're absolutely thrilled to offer this elevated level of craftsmanship!
The patches are all cut by hand, then placed and stitched individually by one our most skilled sewers. The swatches themselves are a mix of chambray, corduroy and twills. The jackets are then dipped into a reactive pigment dye of either Sienna or Marine. The different patches have varying levels of dye absorption, revealing a beautiful variance for each garment. With wear and use, your Doyle will show fading and aging in its own unique and distinct way.
Two open patch pockets sit at the hip. They're doubled against the body, allowing your hands to use them both from the side and from the top. Hidden brass rivets and heavy stitched bar tacks sit at the corners to reinforce them against heavy use. A single exterior pocket and a long interior pocket sit on either sides of the chest.
The sleeves close with a functional single cuff, and can be unbuttoned and pushed up your forearms. The rear is single vented and the soft top point collar cuts a rakish profile whether open or closed. The buttons are natural corozo nut, dyed a gorgeous brandy tone.
This Doyle matches brilliantly to chinos, denim, and trousers. It's easy to care for, effortless to wear, and unmatched in its ratio of quality to price.
12oz 100% Cotton Japanese Sashiko Pique
Also known as our classic pure cotton Sashiko cloth is woven in Japan for use in martial arts uniforms. Known as Dogi (cloth of the way), this fabric has a thick pique weave with well-defined "rice gain" structure. This technique offers three benefits: it allows natural stretch and flexing with movement, it absorbs moisture and stays away from your skin and it gains exceptional tensile strength.. far above a comparable twill weave.
Each Sashiko Doyle is made up in neutral off-white fabric and then dipped into a deep blue indigo reactive dye. The cloth readily absorbs the dye.. gaining a gorgeous and consistent tone and an extremely soft hand. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a particularly nice patina with wear. The dye will tend to fade more on the tops of the "rice grains.." yielding a totally unique appearance to each garment.
