Kings Of Indigo Shotoku Patch Work Sherpa
The Shotoku jacket is inspired by the Japanese craft of Boro. Boro; meaning ragged or tattered, was a style favored by the 19th and early 20th century rural Japanese. Cotton was not common in Japan until well into the 20th century so when a garment started to wear thin, the women would patch the area with a small piece of fabric using sashiko stitching. Over time, the original garment would look entirely like a new one. Kings Of Indigo collected vintage denim from around Amsterdam, meaning every piece is unique. Item may differ slightly from the one pictured.
Oversized and long-line, dropped shoulder, take your usual size or size down for something a little more snug.
