Our Sashiko Doyle jackets have proven to be the most popular and beloved products that we've offered in years. Worn casually or formally, they work effortlessly with everything in your wardrobe. At this point, it's safe to say that the Sashiko Doyle is THE crucial Epaulet piece.
Using heavyweight cotton Sashiko from Japan, each piece is cut, sewn, and dyed from start to finish at our facilities in Los Angeles. The result is a unbelievably comfortable piece of outerwear with remarkable texture and color depth. It's ideal for the cooler nights of Fall... but soft enough to wear as a layering piece in the Winter months as well.
As always, it's made from start to finish in Los Angeles.
For this preorder project, we're offering both our Natural Undyed cotton sashiko, and four dyed colors at a $20 premium.
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. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a particularly nice patina with wear.
The Doyle Jacket
The Doyle is our loving homage to the classic French work jacket. 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.
