Tokyo-based Burgus Plus creates ‘ultimate basics’ with a clear nod to the great designs of the past, Hinoya’s house brand aims to reinterpret these garments in a way in which only Japanese denim culture knows how.
The 1928 Heavy Duck Jacket takes style cues from the Levi’s Type I and Type II jackets of the 1920s-50s and has been re-interpreted using a heavy duck canvas in a military olive drab shade. Usually reserved for workwear, duck canvas or ‘cotton duck’ is an incredibly hard wearing and protective fabric due to its strength and durability. The jacket is made in Japan and features a single left chest pocket, cinch back adjuster and buttons produced by Button Works Co.
Coming in at under $300 for a made-in-Japan denim jacket which has a subtle twist on the classic, this is going to wear well and develop a great patina over time.
Available for $286 from Tate and Yoko.
