Fabric Type : 100% cotton unlined, single-ply, Japanese sashiko fabric. This fabric is woven on specialized jacquard looms to recreate traditional Japanese sashiko fabric. This base fabric is woven with indigo color cotton fiber in warp and weft yarn, and then has been running-stitched with tonal thread on base fabric. Sashiko (little stabs or little pierce), a Japanese traditional running stitch technique, is originally used to reinforce fabric, but was also highly valued for its decorative beauty. Sashiko fabric is known for its unmatched durability, and is widely used in protective gear for Judo, Kendo, and Aikido arts. This fabric has an uneven surface and ruggedly texture from cotton fibers. It combines the toughness and the natural softness for comfort. And this jacket is washed once for the fashionable vintage feel and look. Pre washed, minimal shrinkage. And the fabric will develop a comfortable feeling and continue to get softer and cozier through repeated wear. And the more you wear, the more sahiko fabric will fade beautifully. Suitable for spring or fall.
Placket type : 5 buttons on front opening. The front buttons are made of antiqued black coated metal buttons that have been processed to look like the paint has peeled off in places for the fashionable vintage feel.
Storage : This jacket has two exterior pockets. Two external patch pockets on the lower front section of the jacket. And the upper pocket corners are riveted for extra strength.
Cuff type : Single button cuff. Cuff slit with bartack stitch reinforcement.
Pattern Type : Plain (Solid color).
Sleeve Style : Set-in sleeves.
Sleeve Length : Long sleeves.
Other details : Momotaro Jeans tag applied to lining. Buttoned side tabs (Both sides of the hem come with side button adjusters, allowing you to cinch the shape).

This jacket has a straight back yoke and two large back panels with a centre seam. Since this item is indigo-dyed, it's prone to crocking, or color transfer, so wear (and wash) it with dark colors till it's worn in.
