orSlow - 1950's Type II Denim Jacket - Two Year Wash orSlow's Two Year Wash fabrics are among the best denim washes we've ever handled. The TYW jacket isn't just stoned-washed in a big batch, but individually attended to in order to ensure all details are accurate and natural - notice the unique fading on the elbows, for example. The 1950's Type II Jacket is orSlow's take on the original 507xx (Type 2) denim jacket introduced in 1953. The 507xx was famously worn throughout Hollywood by musicians and movie stars (now would be a good time to go watch Badlands starring Martin Sheen) which launched the denim jacket into a fashion icon forever. orSlow pulls no punches on this one, making a historically accurate and easily-worn jacket that harkens back to one of the coolest eras of American fashion. Like a well-fitting leather jacket, it's hard not to feel cool in a well-worn jean jacket.

Fit Notes: The orSlow Type II jacket runs small by our standards - this is majorly in part to its short hem. Ryan is shown here wearing a size 2. He his 5' 9", 140lbs, and slender. If your shirting size is typically a medium, we would go for a size 3 here and use that as a guide for the sizing up and down the scale.

Freenote - 15oz Avila Slim Straight Denim - Blue/Brown.

It's been some time since we've had indigo denim from Freenote, and we couldn't think of a better introduction than this blue/brown. If you know anything about our preferences, you know we love an earth-tone weft. Well, it doesn't get any more earthy than this. The brown on these is deeper than any we've seen from persimmon, turmeric, or catechu dyes in the past. It's a true mocha-colored brown that we think makes for one hell of a stylistic denim. The contrast between indigo and brown is a lot less harsh than that of a traditional jean, and this makes for a better-looking cuff in our opinion. It's also right in our sweet spot for weight. We really dig anything between 14-16oz. It has the perfect amount of crunch to give you all of those wonderful lines around the legs without being so hard to break in. This is the fabric we've been waiting for Freenote to work with for years!

Freenote - CD-4 Jacket - Black.

When we saw this fabric, even via catalog images, we knew we had to have it in the shop. It's such a unique twist for the guys at Freenote that lends to a more contemporary look. If you're like us, you'll think this baby is waxed up front. Crazy enough, it's not. This is a double pigment dyed fabric from Japan that gives off the look of a waxed piece, without all the upkeep of a waxed piece. It has a nice crunchy texture to it that even feels waxed in person. We couldn't believe our ears when they told us about it at a recent show. It's lined throughout the body with Alpaca and the sleeves have this gorgeous burnt orange satin. This thing is truly luxurious. It's so warm and looks so damn good. It functions like an N-1 at about half the price!

Freenote - Jepson Sashiko Plaid - Indigo.

The Jepson is a known staple at this point, but their ability to make it look new with every release is pretty astonishing. We said that last time but they've done it again. A mix of sashiko and plaid is almost too much to handle. It's a classic 2 pocket shirt that can be worn with almost anything. It has so many layers to explore right now, and even more, will expose its true nature once the indigo starts to fade. This baby is a standalone piece that doesn't really need other layers to make it pop.
Indigofera - Kurt Jacket - Indigo Single Stripe.

The single stripe has become a staple at the shop over the last couple of years, but always in pant form. When we saw this classic chore coat-style work jacket come up, we couldn't say no. This fabric always constructs so nicely and the indigo pops like crazy when it's hit with the one wash. We are super intrigued by the mismatched pockets and all the extra sewing work throughout. The extra pockets and banded collar are the extra details that draw you in, but most people stay for that gorgeous Japanese fabric.
