Sashiko Sportcoat, Doyle, & Chino Project: Natural, Navy, Grey, Black

Epaulet

This is a preorder project that will ship in approx. 4 to 6 weeks (Natural) and 6 to 12 weeks (Navy, Grey & Black). These items are FINAL SALE and cannot be returned, but we'll do our best to accommodate size exchanges if possible. Items are sold separately ($230-$250 for Jackets, $165-$185 for Chinos). Please be sure to select a size and color for each item that you order. 

Dear Friends, 

The COVID-19 Pandemic is a terrible crisis for everyone, but its effects are falling hardest on the poor and working class. Our local Los Angeles factory is fighting for survival, and we're offering this project as a way to keep them afloat during these times. 

We're offering our Sashiko garments ... arguably our most sought-after items, as part of a novel preorder project that gives back directly to the craftspeople who make them. We've called it Unidos Juntos, or "Working Together." Here's how it works: 

1) Between now and Tues 3/31, you can order a Sashiko Sinclair, Doyle, or Rivet Chino in any size that we offer. You can opt for the Natural (as shown) or select Navy, Grey, or Black for an additional charge. 

2) A workers fund will be established with $20 taken from the sale of each Doyle & Sinclair and $10 taken from the sale of each Rivet Chino. These funds will be divided up and paid to each of the nine craftspeople who produce these garments. This payment is in addition to the regular wages that they receive and will help them out immensely with childcare and other expenses during this time. 

3) This project is relatively simple allowing the workers to sew these pieces at home whist under the current California guidance. Lead time for natural garments will be approximately 4-6 weeks, most likely on the shorter side of this.

The color garments must be dyed at our local dyehouse, which is currently closed, but slated to reopen in mid-April. Provided that happens, the dyed garments can ship around the end of April. But that timeline depends on the State of California, so please understand that it could be delayed further. 

Thank you so much for your support! Let's keep the trade going, keep our workers paid, and get you guys into some incredible new clothing! Please feel free to contact us for personal sizing advice. Our Facebook page is great for quick responses! 

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. 

Read below for descriptions and measurements of each jacket. 

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. 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 Sinclair Sportcoat
The Sinclair is our casual sportcoat which marries refined sartorial details to strong, rugged construction. Like our tailored jackets, it has 3.25" 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. The construction is soft and unpadded, making this an excellent no-nonsense travel companion and a worthy alternative to a traditional canvassed sportcoat.

The Rivet Chino
The Rivet Chino is our signature casual trouser. It has the slim, tapered profile and medium-low rise of a jean, but the traditional pockets of a pant. The shape has two front hand pockets, two rear pockets, and a hidden coin pocket at the front waistband. A chain-stitched rear lap-seam ensures the hard-wearing seam durability of a jean while maintaining the subtle seaming of a trouser. A heavy-gauge brass zipper and freeman-stripe cotton pocket bags finish it off.
