For those who are looking for a leather jacket that isn’t your usual top grain, sleek black affair, look no further than the Iron Heart 49-J Modified Type III Split Steer Roughout Leather Jacket. Either worn as casually as a trucker, or dressed up like a leather jacket, this is the kind of piece that makes any outfit. Just look at that split hide’s beautiful texture and that neutral brown tone.
Crafted in Japan by Four Speed, this piece gonna be a little heavier than your denim Type IIIs thanks to that garment weight flesh-side out split leather that it’s cut from, which is fully lined with smooth olive cotton twill. So, like cavemen of yore, an animal hide will keep you warm and protected from the elements, but without all that fur. And this time with expert Japanese craftsmen sewing it all up for you.
Featuring all the excellent details you know and love from IH’s Type IIIs that make them so wearable, like slash hand warming pockets, knife pleats, and metal hardware, the split steer Type IIIs come with really nifty hidden interior pockets that you can throw your phone in, or your comb, weed – whatever your EDC is comprised of.
