Many people associate workwear with high-quality construction and clothing that meshes very well stylistically. This ONI heavy Oxford 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 heavyweight coverall will be the most reliable Autumn 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 pocket and two handwarmer pockets at the waist.
The fabric is slowly woven. It is a heavy Oxford but it just feels even lighter and softer than you'd expect due to the low tension weave and the "Tempi treatment" (the Japanese one-wash process). Also, the colour's so unique due to the sulfur dye. You can expect great fades quickly, and the khaki tone will age nicely.
The coverall is made with all the superior-quality ONI details such as copper buttons, copper rivets at cuffs and features a top-notch construction.
Overall, this unique piece is a wardrobe essential for its durability and versatility.
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.
