Studio D'Artisan 7.5oz 'Suvin Gold' Kimono Style Loopwheeled Tee (Heather Navy)

Size Guide

Inspired by tradition, made for the future!

Mimicking traditional Japanese methods of clothing construction when making Kimonos, SDA has fused the old and new world to bring us a truly novel garment. Specially developed by SDA, this Kimono style tee is a new way to make a raglan style without any cross stitching. This means the entire tee, including the sleeves, is made from two large pieces of fabric.  No horizontal sleeve stitching under the armpits - one elegant swoop that wraps from the bottom of the shirt to the end of the sleeve! This makes for a super-smooth feeling from the arm and chest. 

For those who don’t know, Suvin Gold cotton is one of the most expensive, quality cottons you can find. When you try it on and feel the fabric, you will understand why.

Thanks to being made on vintage loopwheel machines, the texture is so smooth and has a thick, substantial feel. This 7.5oz fabric is great for people with sensitive skin, its heavier than normal loopwheeled tees but feels very light on the body!

SDA has let the fabric speak for itself here, with a plain and minimal fabric perfectly accentuating the stylish elegance of the Kimono manufacture.

    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.
