When Edward VII popularized the Glen Check it definitely wasn’t in a jacket like this one. The Pure Blue Japan Glen Check Type II Jacket is a wacky take on the classic outerwear piece that brings some pattern to the mix.
It bears the resemblance of a Type II in many ways: pleated front, dual chest pockets, and waist adjusters. They even use indigo to dye the yarns of the fabric which will result in fading over time. But, rather than a traditional twill denim, they used several different shades of rope dyed indigo yarns to form the classic Glen Check pattern.
If you’re feeling bold enough, you can pick up this atypical Type II for ¥27,000 or about $225 over at Pure Blue Japan.
