Japanese tastemakers Tanuki are making marks in the denim world with their contemporary take on traditional raw denim. For Tanuki, fabric plays a crucial role in the brand’s sartorial process, alongside modern sensibilities in the silhouette and heritage-inspired garment design.
In this case, we’ve got the Yoroi Heavy Canvas Utility Jacket clocking in at an astounding 25 oz. ‘Yoroi‘ translates to ‘armor‘ and this heavy-duty beast is definitely going to give you some protection. It’s pre-washed and specially treated with environmentally friendly enzymes which will soften the fabric and ease the break-in process. With an olive warp and weft, the Yoroi is going to have a unique denim evolution and fantastic fading properties.
Based on a classic work jacket silhouette with some modern tweaks, if you’re looking for a canvas companion that is going to outlast your next car, this is likely it.
Available for $365 at Tanuki
