Agriculture School Jacket
Jacket style cut after study of a Japanese Agriculture school uniform jacket from the 1930s. Cut in a Beaugan original fabric, which has been woven to reflect the original fabric which was woven from scratch with 4 separate coloured threads, this fabric resembling denim from first appearances, but revealing a more complicated structure and colouring from closer inspection. This was a gabardine that was used in Japanese workwear before the invention and importation of denim into Japan from the US.
This sample features heavily reconstructed/ torn and repaired damaging in from and back to reveal the horizontal yarns unique to this fabric. Also features slight tinting/fading in areas to express a worn in (pre-aged) feel. Five buttons (water buffalo) can be worn as work or formal style lapel. Jacket has two flap pockets at waist, single, outer box pocket at left breast, concealed flap pocket inside right breast, key fob loop at left side.
Made in Wakayama Japan.
