This jacket comes to us from WeiXiang Lian of Taiwan who wore it year round for the past 2 years. In winter he wore a windproof jacket underneath this Type II, and in summer he wore it while riding his motorcycle.
What’s resulted are the sort of fades that most denim jacket owners can only dream of. Insane honeycombs at the elbows all the way down to the wrists. Crazy action at the shoulders, roping galore, pocket tears, and even the leather patch has patinated to take on a life of its own. If there was ever a jacket worthy of the Hall of Fade, this one is.
