Hey guys!

We're thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with Styleforum.net! We're celebrating our 15-year anniversary by offering our two most iconic jacket shapes in our brand new Rope-Dyed Indigo Sashiko.

Casual "shakets" like these have been part of our collection since 2013. They're versatile piece which are easy to dress up or down. During the course of our photoshoot, we paired them with jeans, trousers, collared shirts, and t-shirts.. just to show the many ways that they can be worn. @LA Guy and Styleforum agreed to this collaboration, as the jackets perfectly bridge the worlds of CM and SW&D. They have a place in every man's wardrobe.

You can opt for the Doyle (chore jacket) or the Field jacket (four pocket safari style) in either Raw Indigo Sashiko or Pumice Washed Indigo Sashiko. The Raw garments a rich deep indigo blue and will fade gorgeously over time. The Pumice Washed garments have been treated with coarse stones to yield a vibrant faded blue color and a stunning patina.This cloth is brand new for us, and this Japanese rope-dyed fabric is designed to fade like a beast!

We have enough fabric on hand to produce approx 150 total units.

Sizes 34 to 48 are available to order. Preorders will be open until Thursday, April 6th, or while our fabric inventory lasts.

I'll keep this thread updated throughout the preorder window. Feel free to ask any questions on sizing, details, or anything else, and I'll be happy to personally answer them.

That seals it...
I'm ordering the Doyle.


Field jacket is a great travel jacket if flying. I have a linen field jacket with 4 pockets like that. I can put most of what I need in them and when going thru security, just take off the jacket.

The field jacket is just a little busy for me.
The Doyle is sleeker.
If shite falls out of my pockets through customs because of no buttons, I'll just buy more.
Because I'm a total baller...

LOL

We do sell a lot more Doyles than Field Jackets, but more pockets = more fades when you have a fabric like this.
It's kind of funny, but I've never been huge on chore coats or field jackets.
Yet, I just ordered one from S&M, and I'm going to order yours as well.
It's been what seems like 3 straight months of 60 degree weather in SoCal. I have never seen a stretch of weather like this.
I'm upping my layering game, and I love the texture and that shade of blue.
Great job on this.

Definitely the Doyle is the go to option if you are like me and dress more casually. And in raw denim. I think that I have an old indigo Kicking Mule Workshop tee to wear with it, so no fear of dye bleed.

Rock out like it's 2007.

Thank you! You're really going to love it.

I actually ran one of the the raw jackets through three different home washes. Even with that, it's starting to fade and lighten quite a bit. I'll get some comparison pics and videos done to show the difference between them.

And yeah... this weather is INSANE. I lived in Vienna for three years and it never rained this much.

Oh and btw... new 60-second video of the four jackets. I edited the video in TikTok so I was able to score it with "Be Thankful For What You Got"


For real, I watched this a half dozen times just for the song.

Hey guys!

We ran some wash tests on the Raw Indigo Jacket. I'm dialing in the shrinkage to ensure that we get our patterns right before any washing happens.

It's rad to see how much fading is evident just after some normal wash and use. In this case, I ran our test jacket through a dozen cycles in my home washer. I'd wash it in cold water and then hang dry it.

Below is a comparison pic between the Raw Indigo, the dozen home wash cycles, and our Pumice Wash.
