1950-1960 Vintage India Ink Dyed Pure Irish Linen Indigo Dyed  Cord Stripe Fabric  Made Double Breasted Work Jacket






Irish linen is synonymous with luxury linen and is a sign of the highest quality.

However, the cultivation of flax, the raw material for linen production in Ireland, ceased more than 60 years ago in the 1960s, and the spinning of linen from flax ceased around 1990.












Originally, Irish linen was made by spinning flax, which was cultivated in Ulster in the north of Ireland (Donagal and Tyrone, where Herdmans was located), into yarn and weaving it in Ireland.

Nowadays, Irish linen is mainly made from flax from France and Belgium, spun into yarn in China and other countries, and woven in Irish Linen Guild member companies and their authorized mills (often outside of Ireland).











And so the curtain has fallen on the “real” Irish linen, which no matter how much you want it or how much money you put into it, you just can’t get it again.














In such a situation, discovering vintage Irish linen from the time when “real” Irish linen was still being made must be the only way to get what you can never have, no matter how much you want it.











Irish linen” was a valuable export for Ireland, which was economically exhausted after the Great War and its withdrawal from the British Commonwealth in 1949, in order to earn foreign currency. However, at that time, Irish linen was only a fabric for general use with good quality and texture, and was not particularly expensive. This fabric is a dead stock of fabric exported to France at that time.











This cord stripe fabric is woven by combining two fine Irish linen yarns dyed in indigo for the warp and one thicker yarn spun in a melange of indigo and raw silk, resulting in a piqué-like appearance of warp stripes. A wonderful and special combination of genuine Irish linen dyed with indigo, which no one can make anew.











The fabric is then roughly dyed with India ink to create a complex and deep shade of black to charcoal to medium gray and indigo blue.











As the fabric is worn, it grows with the changes, with the indigo color under the India ink and the white of the center of the yarn behind it appearing on the edges and wrinkled areas where it is worn.











1.2-1.5mm fine hand stitching on patch surrounding collar. All the buttonholes are hand-worked. Dry handwork that is completely different from the warmth and simplicity of the hand. But the expression created by the natural disorder creates a taste that cannot be created by a sewing machine.











The red linen hand stitching on the back gutter is also a stylish accent.











Based on the prototype of the double-breasted work jackets of the 1930s and 1940s, this work jacket has a curved line at the front and rearranged sleeves.













フランスのワークウェアは、テーラーワークを基本としたパターンメイクと縫製を基本とし、「 ファッション 」と対極の位置にあるはずの「労働着」を超えた存在です。

French workwear is based on pattern making and sewing based on tailor work, and is beyond “work clothes” that should be at the opposite position of “fashion.











The front turnover is also stopped by a hand-stitched arrangement.











The rounded, flat pattern around the collar has a unique look that symbolizes old French vintage.











The cuffs of the cook’s work jacket, lengthened to serve the function of a pot holder, are a wonderful balance of chic folded accents and curvaceous construction.











A smart and powerful look with a row of closely spaced buttons. The rhythm of 19 buttons and buttonholes in a row.










アンティーク生地で包んだreinforced buttonの並ぶ前身頃のfacingは、表から見えませんが、なかなか趣のある姿。

The front facing, lined with reinforced buttons wrapped in antique fabric, is not visible from the front, but has quite an atmospheric appearance.











The buttons we chose are the most popular vintage buttons and were used on French hunting jackets, where one button is about the price of 1-1.5 big macs. Dogs, horses, deer, boars, foxes, and wolves. Vintage animal relief buttons with a mixture of hunter and prey.











From the small 16mm size, various materials and motifs of various animals are randomly selected and sewn all over the place. The buttons, with their slightly peeling paint and dull color, are imprinted with the same traces of time that have been etched into this fabric.











Buttonholes are also all hand-stitched.











Linen hand stitching on sleeve outseams and side seams.











The rustic cotton broadcloth lining has just the right amount of tension and wrinkle, and the rustic look of the yarn is appealing.











The hem of the lining, with its deep turnover and hand stitching, swiings without stopping at the body and is light around the hem.Linen hand stitching on sleeve outseams and body side seams.











The hand-stitched wrinkles are also beautiful and soft because of the handwork.











Pockets are lined and hand-stitched to create a rounded and gently three-dimensional pocket.











It is a garment that fascinates people who have values that are never created on paper or digital screens, and who are not confused by trends, brands, or prices.
