East Meets West with Blue Blue Japan’s Sakura-Strewn Western Jacket
Blue Blue Japan doubles down on the blue-ness in their new Western Jacket, just as they do in their name.
The indigo-dyed cotton sateen jacket is all kinds of Johnny Cash goodness and stays true to an iconic (if niche) jacket style. Snap closures, a cropped fit, and an elasticated rear hem bring the yee haw you’re looking for. It’s hard to see right now, but there’s a whole other level of indigo hiding on the surface of this natural indigo-dyed sateen. There’s also some sakura flower embroidery to spice up the ensemble, which will surely pop the longer and harder you wear the garment.
With all the indigo in all these different materials, you can expect a great variance in fade time and type as you break in this sweet jacket. All that adds up to plenty of blue with tons of nuance.
Available for $595 at No Man Walks Alone.
