Studio D'Artisan "Amami Dorozome" Mud Dyed Western Shirt

Size Guide
The beauty of traditional Japanese mud-dyeing with Western styling!

SDA's latest offering showcases the amazing mud dyeing techniques originating from the Amami-Oshima islands north of Okinawa. This ancient dyeing process called "dorozome" dates back over 1000 years, using the unique dye properties of the mud and trees native to the small islands! This process, performed by highly skilled Japanese craftsmen, results in a garment-dyed fabric that is truly unique! The cotton fabric has been slowly woven using vintage machines to produce a subtly irregular texture. With time the deep earthy brown colour will age to a soulful look!

This shirt features classic Western shirt styling, with black stone snap buttons on the placket and sleeves, twin shirt pockets and the characteristic Western shirt panel design on the chest and back yoke! Chain stitching has been used throughout for enhanced durability so you can enjoy the beauty of ageing for many years to come!

If you are looking for a classic Western shirt that combines expert craftsmanship and ancient Japanese dyeing techniques, then this is the shirt for you!

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:
