Studio D’Artisan Indigo Sashiko Vest

Here we have a true ‘new classic’ piece, inspired from timeless design.

This vest design originated from the 1930s and was very popular with hunters for it’s super functional design! To breath new life into the classic, SDA have created a modern reprise using their slim fit aesthetic and special grand indigo dyed, sashiko knitting fabric which is slowly woven on vintage machines! With wear the sashiko fabric will age beautifully and gain a totally unique look! With it’s riveted cinch back adjuster and soft dobby fabric lining it makes for a super comfortable, elegant fit! 

Why not bring some ‘real gentleman’ styling into your outfit!?!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
