The angsty cowboy never has to walk alone again with the introduction of Freewheelers‘ 14 oz 507RB Type 2 Jacket in Black. Perfectly positioned as a repro of a garment that never existed, the Black Type 2 is based on the iconic but short-lived 50s-early 60s Levi’s model known for its boxy fit, two chest pockets, and double pleats. And so seeing as this black edition was never made and overdyeing an indigo original would be a wild move, vintage enthusiasts and heritage heads will both tip their Stetsons to this unicorn.
With a selvedge fabric made on vintage machines, look forward to pleasantly rough, authentic texture while fading that black sulfur-dyed warp and plain cotton weft to grey perfection. Featuring enamel-coated rivet buttons and a deerskin leather patch, this alt-reality vintage grail comes in a slim fit, is made in Japan, and has red selvedge ID throughout. So whether you’re trying to bring a new flavor to a Canadian tux or gain a refreshing perspective on the khaki denim relationship, with Freewheelers’ latest offering, you can add a timeless edge to any outfit.
