Sometimes you’ll encounter a piece that looks utterly bananas on the rack, but winds up being perfect once you throw it on. And anyone familiar with Studio D’Artisan has likely experienced this fashion phenomenon. The brand has never shied away from humorous, chaotic takes on classics, many of which just seem to work once you put them on.
The newest such piece from Studio is their Kasezome Sashiko Jacket, which takes cues from classic Wrangler jackets, but goes the extra mile. First of all, the 14 oz. 100% cotton Sashiko fabric has been made from painstakingly hank-dyed yarns, which will give it a ridiculous amount of depth and nuance. In another homage to classic Wrangler, the pseudo-trucker style jacket is given pleats, but in order to make it their own, SDA added a faux-fur shearling lining.
The three front pockets add a great vintage vibe and plenty of storage space to boot. The jacket can be had in dark indigo or a washed, lighter color and though both look great, there’s really something special about the lighter colored version – must have something to do with that gorgeous hank-dyed sashiko!
The ensemble is rounded out with black SDA buttons and a deerskin patch.
