The world of vintage denim jackets can be cut-throat. Highly sought after, a classic denim jacket with those quintessential cool details makes it a compelling choice for any wardrobe. If you’ve thrown up your hand in despair on your last vintage shopping trip, have no fear, Kiriko is here.
We’ve highlighted Kiriko’s top-notch fabric hi-jinks a couple of times here on Heddels, but this particular jacket is especially noteworthy. They’ve taken a classic Lee Riders jacket, famous for its trademark cowboy-appropriate slim fit and zig-zag stitched placket, and kicked the whole thing up a notch with unique fabrics. These gorgeous Japanese fabrics really elevate the piece, bringing it from the realm of the workwear basic to the more avant-garde and fashion-forward. These embroidered sashiko fabrics will also age nicely, creating a patchwork of varied patinas that will have the other denim fanboys foaming at the mouth.
Each Made-in-USA piece is one of a kind and they’re available for $350 from Bridge & Burn.
