Made in Los Angeles
The Sinclair is our signature unconstructed sportcoat. Crafted in our popular Japanese cotton Sashiko, this piece is garment dyed for a rich jet black and softened to be exceptionally comfortable on the first wear. It's wearable year round and works as a versatile outerwear piece on mild days and a great layering piece on colder days. It's effortlessly dressed up with a collared shirt and trousers or worn casually with a t-shirt and jeans.
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. 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. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a nice patina with wear.
Each Sashiko Sinclair begins its journey as a stiff, neutral white garment. It's plunged into an organic reactive dye bath for about 48 hours.. allowing the pigment to entirely soak through its distinctive "rice grain" texture. The soft drape and comfort of this final product cannot be overstated!
The Sinclair marries refined sartorial details to strong, rugged construction. Like our tailored jackets, it has 3.75" lapels and an elegant front which can be styled as a 2-button or 3-button stance. And like our Doyle jackets, it has a functional sleeve cuff and two-way front patch pockets. This allows for endless variations in styling, and a versatile piece which looks just as good with a tie and trousers as it does with a t-shirt and jeans.
The construction is soft and unpadded, making this an excellent no-nonsense travel companion and a worthy alternative to a traditional canvassed sportcoat. 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.
The sleeves close with a functional single cuff, and can be unbuttoned and pushed up your forearms. The back is single vented, and all interior seams are fully finished and taped for durability.
