This Type-II jacket from Momotaro is cut from an impressive, 100% cotton sashiko fabric. Traditionally used for Kendo and Judo uniforms, the fabric boasts a substantial yet soft, broken-in hand. This is down to Momotaro’s ‘Ochazome’ green tea dyeing technique. It's a time-intensive process that not only softens the fabric but also imparts a subtle, tan hue and an unmistakably vintage look. The tea itself comes from Shimoyama’s tea rooms in Japan’s Okayama prefecture. Each jacket comes with a sachet of their tea so you can try it for yourself.

Elliot wears a size 40 jacket. He is 185cm tall and weighs 74kg / 6ft 1" and 163 lbs.
