Made To Order Sportcoat Japanese Cotton Sashiko

Epaulet x Rochester Tailored Clothing

Working with our signature jacket shapes, you can choose an array of details to create your very own custom sportcoat. Each piece will be expressly made for you by in the USA by the esteemed Rochester Tailored Clothing Co. 

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's exceptionally strong, breathable, and comfortable. With over 5,000 ready to wear Sashiko garments sold, this is far and away the most popular fabric that we've ever offered. 

For our custom program, the cloth is dyed in Los Angeles and then sent to RTC in matched, coherent dye lots. When it's received, its steam pressed and detailed. The final garments are preshrunk, and perfectly matched in color tone when you order a full suit. The fabric will have tiny variations due to the thick pique and dye process, but the overall presentation is very consistent and business appropriate. A Sashiko sportcoat is truly distinct from anything else out there!
