The design source of Short Shirts Jacket is the "60s Utility Shirt," a classic of US military vintage. It features a large square pocket on the chest and firm cotton back sateen fabric.

The high-density cotton back sateen fabric used for this item adds a pinch of modernity and elegance to this work- inspired item.

The entire processes from fabric processing to sewing of the Short Shirts Jacket, along with this season’s Denim Shirts and Work Trousers are done at a factory in Okayama Prefecture.
Okayama is one of the leading denim production areas in Japan. Many factories in Okayama are good at finishing delicate fabrics and sewing high-density fabrics.
Even though the heavy fabrics is used as the material, the rounded sleeves and deformed pattern of the Short Shirts Jacket are also beautifully realized with techniques of Okayama.
The fabric used for this item has been certified as "Kurashiki Dyeing ®︎", which is a safety certification for textile processing, and is certified by the Japan Textile Association (JTSA).
That shows us the fabrics are subjected to on-site inspections or verification of certification by documents regarding the inclusion of specific harmful substances.
The dyeing method used is highly safe even by global standards.
In addition, by conducting all processes from finishing the textile to production in Okayama, we are able to reduce carbon dioxide emissions during transportation.
We choose to make our products locally in order to realize the philosophy of leinwände, as well as the design and silhouette.
