The Japan Jacket. Sculpted. Drapey. Architectural. Cropped. Finished with linen bias trim. This version is heavy linen that I've shibori-dyed in deep blue-blacks.
Dear Reader, Please bear in mind: I have never been to Japan. This is a "Japan" Jacket in the spirit of Kenny Shopsin's Egyptian Burrito.
"I said, 'An Egyptian Burrito is a burrito, and inside is sort of what Kenny thinks Egyptians might eat.' " — Calvin Trillin
