Japan Blue’s 14.8 oz. WWII Denim Jacket Has a T-Back Design

It is crazy to think that a period of dramatic rationing could produce a garment that is still celebrated today but the WWII-era Levi’s Type I continues to make waves with one of its latest re-incarnations being released by Japan Blue. Their new 14.8oz WWII Denim Jacket takes the denim jacket back to the 40s at a fraction, of a fraction, of the price of an original in this condition, if you could even find one.

Using a Japanese 14.8 oz. raw selvedge denim slowly woven from 100% Texas cotton on vintage machines,  you’re treated to a slightly rough, irregular texture – replicating how denim of this time would have felt. With details like a 5 doughnut button placket with parallel pleats, flap-less left chest pocket, and a cinch ’round back, you have all the details you need for a good time. But it’s the discernible ‘T’ back panel construction —typically only seen on larger sizes — that will really get the vintage heads going. They might even try to ‘off the back’ you for this as you walk by. And thanks to its grand-indigo yarn-dyeing method, you already know the fade potential is out of this world. So where it often, wear it proud, and wear it to shreds – or at the very least try your hardest.
