The last piece of the puzzle of our 12th Blue Spell indigo-noir collection. Of course the main trait of this garment piece is its rope-dyed indigo persona, what else? When you see that wale texture, you know you’re dealing with a corduroy fabric. For many years, corduroy was used to make men’s sporting clothing and workwear due to its resilience, easy care, and durability. Side by side with denim, it has an expansive history in the thesaurus of work wear.
Cord fabric that’s made with spectacular rope-dyed indigo yarns. The fabric itself is weighted at a lighter side of 10 oz. / sq. yds. It’s dyed and woven in Japan. Yes, it’s not just any kind of fabric. To make it even more interesting, we got this indigo cord from a fabric mill’s deadstock inventory. We decided to utilize all those deadstock rolls into this garment piece. We’re only able to convert those rolls into (exactly) 20 pieces of jacket. Limited? How about near-extinct?
Same with its older ‘Sashiko’ brother, we utilized our signature Work Jacket Type III as the base pattern. It’s our original jacket pattern inspired by the 1930s denim jacket style. It has a rounded collar style. The jacket has a double pleat on its front placket. It’s equipped with a single big pocket, finished off with Oldblue signature looped-arcuate stitch. For those of you who enjoy a refined detail, you’d appreciate its distinct curved front and back yoke style.
