Many people associate workwear with high-quality construction and clothing that meshes very well stylistically. The new Oni Sashiko Coverall Jacket certainly follows it to perfection.
Oishi-San is well known for interpreting American workwear staples through his Japanese dystopic lens. More of a character actor than a leading man, this lightweight coverall will be the most reliable spring/summer jacket in your arsenal. It's designed for work—with plenty of pockets and durable construction—and is understated enough to add some depth to everything from a hoodie to a tee. It has one inner and one outer breast pockets and two lower front patch pockets.
The fabric is woven raising the number of stitches to the limit. In Japanese, Sashiko means "little stabs", reference to the plain running stitch that makes up sashiko's geometric, all-over patterns.
The jacket is made with all the superior-quality ONI details such as copper buttons, copper rivets at cuffs and yellow stitching.
The legend of ONI is alive to this day. In recent years Oishi-San has devoted himself to experimenting with widely varying grammages, rough textures, different indigo dyeing techniques and novelty cuts while always maintaining a very limited production and wielding his experience in denim which now goes back more than 60 years.
