Inspired by the yukata-shaped chef's coat worn by our friend Chef Antto Melasniemi and the yukatas worn by Toshiro Mifune in his numerous roles as the samurai in Kurosawa’s films, the Antto is made with a lightweight twill hand-dyed in natural Sakon Nakhon Indigo by our Indigo Grandmas.
It has epaulettes on the shoulders which takes it away from its original shape, the underside is in the mud-dyed Dune color, the lapel is stitched with lines for more structure as well as being a nod to the detail on the yukata.
For closure, it has a magnetic snap button on the outside together with an inner metal button and flap to secure the jacket even more. Fabric ties in its own fabric that fall at the side can be adjusted in front or at the back or styled through the epaulette. A slit pocket on the left-hand side is lined with silk. Two slits on either side of the jacket hem with trimmed with Dune-coloured piping.
