Here's Fullcount's version of one of the most iconic denim jackets ever made. The type 2 jacket was made by Levi's in the 50s and its simple design has proven to stand the test of time.
The type two jacket was introduced as an updated version of the traditional denim work jackets. Like them, it featured a pleated front and a square-shaped fit, but the "chinch" or "buckle back" that could be used to adjust the width of the jacket was replaced by adjusters located on each side of the hem.
A second front pocket was also added and the jacket and combined with a pair of five pocket jeans and a plain white t-shirt made up the iconic outfit for a new growing movement, the rebellious youth of the time. If you ever saw Elvis Presley wearing denim this is the jacket he was wearing.
The Fullcount version is made with an updated fit to make it easier to wear with the modern silhouette. The fabric used is a 13,7oz Japanese denim that has been pre-washed so that the jacket will be soft to wear from the start and it won't shrink when washed for the first time.
