Back in the olden days, people wore their pants higher and their jackets shorter. As fashions have changed and waistlines have dipped, many purists have kept these original proportions in their repro clothing, but for those of you who’d like some options, brands like Sugar Cane & Co. are here to help. The Japanese repro experts have redone their standard Type II denim jacket, but extended the size run up to 44 and added 1.5 inches in length to the waist for their American counterparts at Self Edge.
Don’t worry, all the same details in the hardware are there, as is the brand’s unsanforized denim, so you can still shrink it to your heart’s content, but maybe show a little less midriff.
They’re available now for $240 at Self Edge.
