New on Self Edge shelves, the Sugar Cane 1953 Type II Unsanforized Raw Denim Jacket is made of a crispy 14.25 oz. selvedge denim and has all the typical Type II trappings – pleated front, dual breast pockets, and side tabs. It was previously only available in a one-wash version, but with some coaxing, Self Edge was able to acquire a small batch of raw versions.
The craziest part of this is the price. Self Edge cut the price in half from when they had the jacket for the first time around years back, and now a Japanese-made unsanforized selvedge denim jacket can be yours for just $240. Okay, that’s still two and a half bones. But, that’s literally half the price of The Flat Head’s version. Josh (the model) looks angry, but he’s super happy about this. Trust us.
