Doyle Jacket in Rope Dyed Indigo Sashiko Pumice Washed
This Pumice Washed garment goes through a three stage process for aging. It's washed with coarse stones, bathed in an enzyme soak, and then treated with silicone. The result is an authentic light blue patina and gorgeous tonal variations at the seams. These pieces are soft, comfortable, and completely pre-shrunk.
Compared to the raw Indigo sashiko, these are radically more colorfast, and any indigo bleeding will be minimal. It's a perfectly aged and broken-in piece.
Milled in Japan, our 13oz Rope Dyed Indigo Sashiko is a comfortable year-round cotton that's designed to fade beautifully with use.
Considered the best method for Indigo treatments, our rope dyed yarns are twisted into thick ropes and plunged into repetitive cycles of dye and oxidation. This method saturates the outer fibers but leaves a natural "core" on the inside. As you wash and wear the garment, the surface dye fades, and the inner core shows through, yielding a rich 3-dimensional patina.
Its 13oz weight is on-par with the typical denim jacket, and this makes an excellent outerwear piece on mild days and a layering piece on cold days. This indigo dyed fabric is machine washable.
The Doyle is our loving homage to the classic French work jacket. Starting with the minimal and utilitarian shape of the original garment, we upgraded the fit, construction, and fabric to create a versatile piece that can be worn as an all-day smart casual garment.It's easy to care for, effortless to wear, and unmatched in its ratio of quality to price.
Two open patch pockets sit at the hip. They're doubled against the body, allowing your hands to use them both from the side and from the top. A single exterior pocket and a long interior pocket sit on either sides of the chest. The sleeves close with a functional single cuff, and can be unbuttoned and pushed up your forearms. The rear is single vented and the soft top point collar cuts a rakish profile whether open or closed.
Japanese 13oz Sashiko
Our classic pure cotton Sashiko cloth is woven in Japan for use in martial arts uniforms.
Known as Dogi (cloth of the way), this fabric has a thick pique weave with well-defined "rice gain" structure. It allows natural stretch and flexing with movement, it absorbs moisture and stays away from your skin and it gains exceptional tensile strength. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a great fade with wear.
Made in Los Angeles
Each Doyle is made by a handful of skilled operators at our Downtown Los Angeles facility. Every piece is cut and assembled by hand, and their proficiency is evident in the love and care taken with every garment.
