Takumi Ripstop Jacket

Work jacket for gardeners, craftspeople, bodgers and flaneurs of all persuasions

More Information

Takumi* of all types – even the non-practicising kind – we have just the uniform for you.

The inspiration for our Takumi suit comes from the ubiquitous poly-cotton work suits owned by all self-respecting, vaguely practical Japanese men and women. Fixing a bike? Pruning a Cryptomeria japonica? Saving Tokyo from an enormous, radioactive monster (see any one of the 32 Toho studios Godzilla films, where similar suits feature heavily)? Every task is made easier and accomplished more professionally if you’ve got the right clothing. We wanted to channel this utilitarian spirit through the textile-making expertise of our Kojima workshop to create something practical, long-lasting and stylish.

The Takumi Ripstop Jacket is loaded with functional details, including two snap-close breast pockets (each with their own pencil slots, freeing up your ears), a further pair of slanted pockets on the hips, adjustable waist cinches, snap-close cuffs, a two-way YKK zip and a few subtle Niwaki-fied details including the exterior Hanko label and a red popper at the neck.

The real star is the material: based on a highly sought-after vintage fabric – that used for U.S. Army Jungle Fatigue from Vietnam-era onwards – this lightweight but very strong 9.5oz ripstop cotton starts off crisp, dry and firm. Over the years it will soften while maintaining its strength and integrity, settling in to become a durable, soft and highly personalised item of clothing.

Woven, dyed and designed in Japan for Niwaki.

*Takumi / 匠 means craftsperson or artisan, but you can wear it to the pub if you prefer.
