Kapital Linen Wool Wabash SHA-KA-JKT
Kapital is gonna Kapital, which is another way of saying they wear their influences on their sleeves. Or everywhere.
While their influences are fairly wide — and admittedly sometimes need some serious decoding — their SHA-KA-JKT takes its cues from Native American culture, the pioneering of the American west, and traditional Japanese garb. Not a bad combo at all.
Kapital pairs a Wabash-print indigo fabric with a more contemporary cut in this iteration of the Japanese Noragi shirt-jacket. Wabash is the name of the tribe that sold detailed and altered workwear to the white men working hard labor jobs, like laying train tracks, in the 1800s. The interior of the piece has a large “day in the life” illustration of a Native American setting that, most likely, pays homage to the Wabash tribe’s time-honored print — a consistent force in the world of menswear for over 200 years.
Otherwise, it comes outfitted with an open front and plenty of layering potential all winter long.
Available for $798 over at Pancho And Lefty.
