Nine Live's Kalamazoo Sashiko Workshirt is truly a piece of art, but one meant to be broken in. The geniuses over at 9L guided three fabric scientists on this proprietary sashiko to get the exact tension and texture that gives just as much as it takes. Of course, indigo-dyed afterwards. Indeed, it's as clean as it looks. All the while being as bad-ass as can be. Call it a shirt, jacket, workshirt, overshirt, or shacket, it's all of those and more.
Note: Runs slightly small, recommend most folks size up one from your typical shirt size; unless you are on the small end of your size and have a shorter torso.
Model: 6'0'' and 175 lbs. wearing size L for a tailored fit - neither too slim nor too baggy. Model also prefers sizing up to L for the additional length.
