Indigo/Indigo 16.5oz Duck Type I



  • Made in Japan
  • Our first collaboration with Vater und Sohn in Hamburg, Germany
  • Our take on a traditional Type I jacket, but made less boxy and slightly longer than the original design to give it a more fitted look
  • 16.5oz indigo rope dyed weft and warp cotton duck
  • Super dark blue face and reverse
  • Will fade relatively quickly with great shades of dark indigo through to near white
  • All felled seams, the arm/torso seams are taped too
  • Single breast pocket, the flap is lined in lighter weight blue duck
  • Buckle cinch back
  • Copper rivets, zinc buttons and iron buckle were submerged in Kojima Bay for 3 months before the jackets were constructed
  • Sanforized but unwashed, so there will be a little shrinkage (no more than half a full size)
  • Model Sam wears Large, Giles wears an unsoaked/unwashed X-Large
