For over twenty years, the Shiotani brothers Kenji and Kenichi have been responsible for some of the highest quality heritage-inspired denim to come out of Japan. As part of the famed ‘Osaka 5‘, their brand Warehouse & Co. has made a name for itself as one of the prime denim brands which offer incredibly detailed wares inspired by classic garments of the past.
More than a simple reproduction, the attention to detail, production processes, and finishing on the garments is second to none. Famed for studying the thread and core DNA of denim, no stone is left unturned. And that’s very much what we have here in the form of USN Denim Deck Jacket.
Based on a well worn and faded example of an original early twentieth-century US Navy sailor’s shawl collar denim jacket, this version is made from a Japanese selvedge denim, features double patch pockets at the hip, a shawl collar, brass naval buttons and comes in a relaxed fit. So if you’re setting sail or staying in port, or just want a fantastic example of a historic heritage garment, this could be the one for you.
Available for $425 at Standard & Strange
