I normally use this space to encourage reckless behavior, both because it’s my default setting and also because my recklessness enjoys company, but I’m torn in regards to this Sassafras Transplant Jacket. I understand that Lost & Found explicitly advises against doing dirty activities in a jacket this white, but if you’re spending good money on an outer layer this vulnerable to discoloration, you’re kind of choosing chaos and I’m prone to advise leaning into it. Like if a gust of wind can stain your shit, why be precious about it? I’m not advocating for flopping around in the dirt or taking a coffee shower or whatever—don’t be weird—but I am very much advocating for letting Life decorate this awesome blank canvas of a jacket.
Made in Japan from a 100% cotton fabric done in a pure, unstepped-on Columbian white colorway, this perfect layering piece comes outfitted with all the trappings of a good gardening jacket— like a point collar, a snap-button front placket, dual-entry oversized patch pockets at the chest, more patch pockets at the hips, snap-button cuffs and a straight hem—while looking a lot like your favorite white oxford. In other words, it’ll go with everything.
It’s not cheap, however, so maybe don’t garden in it. Or do (and send us the results).
Available at Lost & Found for $395 CAD (~$328 USD)
