18oz Selvedge Denim Type ll Jacket - Indigo



Our interpretation of the “Type II” jacket that Levi’s released in 1953. Slightly longer in the body and less boxy than the original Type II, this Iron Heart version is constructed from our 18oz indigo warp/white weft selvedge denim and sewn together with super-strong poly/cotton constructional stitching.

Indigo 18oz Raw Selvedge Denim - Face

•    Lightly sanforized, so treat as raw
•    Right hand twill
•    White weft, indigo rope dyed warp
This is our slubbiest denim and is woven under pretty high tension.  It fades with a lot of contrast as the raised slubs give up their indigo.  Not particularly breathable, so feels warmer than our signature 21oz selvedge denim.  We do not put the denim through an anti-skewing process post-weave, so jeans made from this denim may exhibit leg twist, particularly in the left leg.
