Yes, of course, there is room for another thread-by-thread reproduction of a classic denim trucker jacket, but it’s also important to remember that when these jackets first launched, they weren’t created as stitch-by-stitch copies of their predecessors. If that’s how things went, we’d still be rocking Flintstones outfits.
That’s why this Type II Jacket from Dawson Denim is so noteworthy. It flaunts the slimmer fit of the classic Type III trucker jacket, mixed with the pleats and pocket styling of its older friend, the Type II. Just imagine if one jacket went on date with the other, it went really well and they, well you get the idea.
That’s not where this odd hybrid analogy ends. Unlike a standard denim jacket, Dawson is using an indigo-dyed Sashiko cloth from Nihon Menpu Mills in Japan, British-made corozo buttons — opting out of standard metal, love it — and hidden internal hunter pockets so you can stay strapped with multiple Ipads if necessary.
