Good evening. This is Ikeda.
I want to travel for the first time in a while.
Recently, we have been seeing a lot of news about the increasing number of people traveling to Japan.
I wonder when I can go.
I also have a strong desire to go somewhere, but lately I've been finding it difficult to find the right time to take a break because I have so much freedom with one surgery.
We still have a lot of AW deliveries coming in.
We are in a situation where the yen is so weak that we cannot afford to travel overseas, so we will continue to operate our business with the dream of traveling domestically.
With memories of my travels in mind, I would like to introduce you to the sotogi fatigue jacket, which arrived yesterday.
Sotogi slacks was introduced in yesterday's ``Zubon'' , so please take a look if you have time.
The sotogi fatigue jacket is based on the fatigue jacket that was released in SS22, and was designed with the image of the blouson that the designer's grandfather wore on his travels.
This also creates a good atmosphere.
Even though it is based on the fatigue jacket, it has a somewhat melancholy look on its face.
Although it is based on the 22SS Fatigue Jacket, there are quite a few changes in appearance, and I think the design is easier to wear.
Some people may have felt that the 22SS uses quilting, which gives it a strong individuality.
On the other hand, 22AW has a monochromatic fabric that feels more minimal.
Like sotogi slacks, the rounded three-dimensional pockets are impressive.
I think the nice thing about it is that it doesn't have a flap, so it doesn't make too much of a statement.
Also, the 22SS was characterized by a thick belt at the waist, but the fact that it has strings may also be an element that makes it feel minimal.
This string is called `` Kongouchi Kumihimo '' and is said to be used in agricultural work and construction sites.
I thought it was a name that would tickle Chuuni's heart, but when I looked it up, it seemed like I had never seen it before.
Maybe it was used at an agricultural university.
And the button usage is excellent.
I think just using wood buttons can create a nice atmosphere, but here they are wood buttons with a lacquer coating called ``Shunkei-nuri'' from Hida Takayama.
It's a detail that makes you feel like an old man, but also something fresh.
The slanted buttonholes also give it a satou feel.
It has a loose fit, so although it's not that thick, I think you can wear it even in winter depending on the innerwear.
The darts on the sleeves have been updated from the 22SS to create a three-dimensional look.
The fabric is the same as sotogi slacks, so it's easy.
The outer material is made of a dense yet supple fabric woven in Bishu, and the lining is made of ``Yaezo-san's twill weave'' made from Kojima's 40/2 organic cotton thread.
It is said that you can feel ``Japanese'' elements such as the Kongo-uchi braid and lacquered wood buttons, ``traditional'' elements that give you a sense of elegance and warmth, and ``memory'' and ``everyday'' elements that feel familiar and close to you. The points make you feel that this is the first item that is unique to Satou.
Wear a Satou item that will make you want to think back on your past journeys or think about where your future journey will take you.
