|I really love the subtle color blocking.|
This jacket was inspired by Japanese Boro clothing.
I find the utilitarian nature of the garments appealing and the patchwork and repair process fascinating. I did not have garments that need extensive repair, but did have jeans in different stages of life.
I ran across a white waffle robe with a Stanford University logo and thought it would be a good foundation for building a kimono jacket.
I decided to use the jeans to build this Boro inspired jacket by piecing them together on top of the waffle robe.
The circle on the upper back is to hide an ugly a grease stain.
I always try to turn a stain into a feature.
The rugged nature of the jacket called out for a complementary closure so I used part of a man's belt.
