The Studio D’Artisan 5680 Western Shirt in Charcoal is a limited collection piece, produced in an exclusive 8 oz. Japanese Kusaki-Zome Dyed Denim to be an all-natural, style forward heritage collector’s item. Kusaki-zome natural dyeing has been passed down since ancient times in Japan, and this Sumi version originally used for calligraphy ink utilizes an extract largely composed of charcoal soot and ash from bark and wood-burning. This all-season, medium weight Japanese milled denim has a uniquely saturated and mildly distressed color, only achievable through this natural, bio-degradable yarn dyed process and is heavily garment washed for softness and to create a stable fabric that will quickly evolve with a personalized patina. The Studio D’Artisan Western Shirt has a classic slim fit that works for various body types, and signature details are elevated from vintage originals like curved front and back yoke panels along with matte black snapped flap front chest pockets, front placket, and cuffs. The SDA Kusaki-Zome Charcoal Sumi Dyed Denim Western is completely chainstitched throughout along with felled seams providing durable, old-world provenance to enable a journey into the ancient past by way of present styles, transported to you by a standout 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.
