If you haven’t heard of sashiko yet, get learned. Hyped up by the likes of Kapital and Rogue Territory, sashiko is a Japanese technique for reinforcing fabric using running stitches. The result is a super textured fabric that’s thick and durable – all attributes that we admire.
Now, 3sixteen is putting this hard-wearing fabric to hard work. Their Sashiko Indigo Work Jacket is part of their Iterations series, an ongoing series of unique and limited styles made outside of the typical semi-annual fashion cycle. The jacket uses a mid-weight indigo dyed sashiko fabric cut into a chore coat style. Four pockets outfit the exterior; two chest, and two hand pockets. And once you unbutton the real wood buttons, you’ll find two interior pockets as well.
Slim cut and get it before it’s slim pickings at Snake Oil Provisions for $330.
