Livid Martin Japan Sashiko Sky Jacket
The new Martin denim jacket by Livid is an extraordinary one. The jacket is named ‘Martin Japan Sashiko Sky Jacket’.
The fit of the jacket is inspired by the classic Trucker jackets. It’s a subtle and clean look jacket. What makes this jacket a true wanna have is the fabric. The fabric is a light blue soft denim fabric featuring a white Sashiko stitching. Sashiko, which means literally ‘little stabs’ is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching technique from Japan. Traditionally they used this method to reinforce points of wear or to repair worn places or tears with patches.
The stitching is done in a squared pattern and runs entirely over the fabric as an all-over. The twill is a typical denim 3 x 1 twill and is woven at the Japanese Nihon Menpu mill.
Details Of The Jacket
The fabric is 13oz and sanforized. It’s woven on a wide loom in Japan. For the Sashiko stitching they used high quality poly core cotton thread which is very durable. The jacket has two exterior welt pockets. The closure is made with silver YKK donut buttons. They made the jacket in a very limited run of 26 pieces only. The production of the jacket is done at Vieira & Faria in Portugal, so European made.
