A sub-brand of Osaka 5 member, Studio D’Artisan, Orgueil delivers collections taking inspiration from early 20th-century workwear designs. Taking references from an early 1900’s jacket of the same name, the classic Sack Jacket is a mainstay in the brand’s output where different fabrics or production techniques are utilized every season.
This season, the Heian period in Japan takes center stage as Orgueil applies the traditional Japanese dyeing technique of Kakishibu. This time-honored dyeing method uses unripe and fermented persimmon fruits that have been aged for 2-plus years to achieve a range of brown, orange, and beige tones. In this case, the 100? cotton fabric has taken on a tobacco-esque hue.
Made in Japan from 100% cotton, the jacket hosts many a workwear tailoring feature including; a four-button placket, single chest pocket, a slightly rounded single ticket pocket alongside 2 large (also slightly rounded) patch pockets, and 3 button cuffs. The juice is most definitely worth the squeeze here, as this piece can easily be dressed up or down.
