On the heels of his recent Wolf Jacket release, the one-man brand, Ande Whall, has decided to revamp the previous offering in a way that’s perfectly fit for fall. Denim jackets are an undeniable classic and always in style with a variety of washes and variations. The previous Wolf was a fairly standard denim jacket from the New Zealander, whose numbered “Special Roll” releases are well-covered here on Heddels.
Hand-made by Whall himself, this version of his jacket features a corduroy yoke and cuff linings. The fabric is a beautiful walnut six-wale corduroy that’s reminiscent of fall and classic workwear. To top it off, the yoke and pockets are lined in blue and white star printed cotton and the two-piece collar has been changed from a rounded design to a flared tip version, giving the whole garment a strong vintage vibe.
Like in the previous Wolf, the natural indigo dyed blue selvedge line denim from Okayama, Japan is 13 Oz. and has been washed once to reduce shrinking. Details like the body-slimming back pleats, open pleats at the shoulder for ease of movement, hand-felled seams, and single-needle construction throughout carry through to this edition as well. Whall has no problem staying true to his ethos of using tried-and-true construction methods to “create new classics.”
