Many Japanese denim brands are powerhouses in their own rights, but some have a particular niche in which they absolutely excel. It would be hard to put Studio D’Artisan into such a box with their prestigious 40 year history—but when it comes to indigo sashiko—few do it as well as them.
SDA has a new offering that mixes the ancient art of sashiko with mid-century style outdoor wear. Their 4499 Mountain Parka has all the functionality you’d expect out of your winter-time outerwear, but with a little extra Japanese flare. Heavy-duty metal snap closures, velcro straps, and an adjustable hood ensure the parka will keep your warm and dry when you need it most. And that diamond sashiko stitch will let people around you know you have killer taste.
Available for $375 at Okayama Denim
