SDA Riffs On Iconic Outdoors Silhouettes With Natural Dyes

Japan is responsible for some of the world’s most significant inventions; from technology and video games to martial arts and sushi. However, one thing that the Japanese do equally well is reinvention, and that’s exactly what Studio D’Artisan has done with its 4544 Tasogare Outdoorsman jacket. 

Taking inspiration from classic outerwear pieces from the likes of US heavyweights Woolrich and Filson, Studio D’Artisan’s Outdoorsman Jacket is a limited quantity piece, produced in either an exclusive Japanese indigo-dyed or akane madder yarn-dyed woven jacquard flannel, depending on which colorway you go for. Designed as a collector’s item, the unique heavyweight fabric is woven as a jacquard using indigo or akane madder dyed yarns at various weights to create a complex and textured check, reminiscent of some of the old-school hunting jackets worn many decades ago. 

The jacket has a plethora of features including a dual-flap front patch chest pocket, dual lower flap front pockets with side entry, back pass-through field pockets, riveted snap pocket closures, a melamine button front placket and cuffs, as well as taped seams and chain stitching throughout. 

The piece comes in blue or red, which I’m hoping isn’t some elaborate ploy to get us signed up for the next season of Squid Game, but I’m down either way.

Available for $485 from Division Road Inc.
