Our latest project here at Sillage takes another step in the right direction as we shift our focus more and more to incorporate the concepts of sustainability and up-cycling into our core beliefs. The collection releasing this upcoming Saturday will consist of vintage U.S. military uniforms re-worked into one of our iconic silhouettes – the 2B Jacket.

 

After carefully sourcing a small collection of vintage military uniforms, we cut the uniforms into square patches and then sewed them together to create sheets of patchwork fabric. From there, we then had our artisans in Tokyo re-work the patchwork sheets by hand and had them cut, assemble, stitch, and sew the different sections of the sheet together. Afterward, the clothes were then sent to our factory in Okayama for the buttoning process.

 

No two jackets are the same, and each one will be numbered by hand by a good friend of the brand Naoyuki Yoda.

 

***This is a product made through the process of up-cycling used/vintage fabrics. Because of the nature of used/vintage fabrics, some pieces may show signs of fraying, dirt, scratches, fading, etc. Please be aware of this before you purchase anything, thank you.
