Sashiko Japanese Cotton Suits, Sportcoats, Trousers, & Doyles

Sale price$1,095.00
Shape: Custom Sportcoat


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, it's 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 biz-caz approprate.
