Mr. Yaezo

Good evening. This is Ikeda.

I hate summer because I get hot .
There will also be a typhoon coming, so it will be even more difficult.
Moreover, the fact that the clothes you can wear are limited also accumulates points of dislike.
I have a birthday coming up, and I can't wait for autumn to arrive soon.

While looking forward to autumn, we are preparing for fall and winter, so let's start with satou.
As for satou, delivery started in July, so it was quietly posted online during the pre-opening period.
Or rather, who is the “Yaezo-san” in the title? I chose this title because I wanted some insight.
That's what I thought when I saw the explanation at the exhibition.

So today I'd like to talk about satou's grandad shirt.
This is a band collar shirt that is an updated version of the 22SS Grandfather shirt blouson that was released during the pre-opening.

Although it's a shirt, the fabric is sturdy and thick, so I think you can wear it like an outer layer.
When talking about the fabric, it is essential to mention `` Yaezo-san '', which is also mentioned in the title.
`` Yaezo-san '' is the man himself who makes the fabric used.

Yaegura - san has been making only this fabric for many years in Kojima, Okayama Prefecture.
Strictly speaking, Mr. Yaegura continues to make only two types of fabrics, plain weave and twill weave, using 40/2 thread.
Of these two types, this shirt uses Yaegura's twill weave .
And it's made from organic cotton.
I felt like I was reminded of Mr. Yaegura, whom I have never met, as he was facing the fabric.
(I was so curious that I looked it up and found an interview article, and I got to see Mr. Yaegura's gentle face.)

The first time I touched it, it just felt good, but when I heard about it, I felt like my senses became much clearer.
I think everyone has times when their senses, feelings, and ways of thinking suddenly change when they hear something in the background, so that's how I feel.

Furthermore, in addition to bleached off color, indigo dyed AI is also available.
Although it was not available at the pre-opening, each piece is indigo-dyed by a craftsman using a dye called ``Jujizome'' from Miyazaki Prefecture, which was also used at the 22nd SS.
As a result, the color is uneven in a good way, making it a piece that you can enjoy changing over time as you wear it.

I've spent a lot of time writing about the fabric alone, but the beautiful silhouette that fills the air when you wear it is also very attractive.
When the temperature drops a little, you can throw it on as a main item, or when you need an outer layer, use it as an inner layer.It's versatile enough to fit any style or occasion .
That's the kind of person I want to be.

The 22SS had a thick belt on the back, but this one has a slightly accented belt, and I can't help but overlap this modest statement with Mr. Yaegura.

Finally, about tags.
``Starting from this season, the tag will include a tag for ceramics made in collaboration with Shibukusa Ryuzukama, a Shibukusa-yaki pottery in Hida Takayama.
Instead of regular glaze, this tag has a water-absorbent glaze applied to the brand logo side.
It has water absorption properties, so you can add your favorite aroma oils or perfumes to it and place it in your room, closet, chest of drawers, etc. instead of a diffuser. ”
I admire Mr. Sato's smart plan.

*Please be aware that if you place a tag soaked with aroma oil etc. in close contact with your clothes, the aroma oil etc. may adhere to your clothes.
*Please handle with care as it may break.

Just like 22SS, we are committed to uncompromising craftsmanship that allows you to feel people's hands, memories, and backgrounds, and we hope you will experience it through our sleeves.
