This jacket is made in Japan by Warehouse & Co. Warehouse is known for making some of the best vintage replica garments in the world. Their attention to details when it comes to material and manufacturing techniques makes it hard to tell the difference if you compare a Warehouse garment with an actual vintage garment.
Here's Warehouse'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 sure 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 Warehouse version is made with a slightly updated fit to make it easier to wear with the modern silhouette. When it comes to the material as well as the construction of this jacket it sure is hard to distingue it from a vintage original even the shape of the front pockets is asymmetrical, following the design unique to the originals produced back in the days. Warehouse proves to us ones again that they have all the knowledge when it comes to recreate these iconic vintage garments in the best way!
The fabric used is a 13,5oz Japanese unwashed denim that will shrink approximately 10% when washed for the first time.
