The 3sixteen Type 1 Jacket simplifies an iconic design while preserving the spirit of what makes it special. They got rid of the standard Type I back cinches and front pleats, and swapped the front flap pocket out for a cleaner one. Lastly, because every good denim jacket needs hand pockets, 3sixteen added hidden ones made of black corduroy so to provide the functionality without ruining the clean lines on the front.
This Type 1s Jacket features a beautiful Japanese 5x5 weave denim from Nihon Menpu. Unlike a standard 3x1 denim twill, this basket weave has a different hand and appearance; it’s got coarse texture that is really brought to the forefront by the mill rinse. What this results in is a jacket that is soft and ready to wear from day one, but will still fade as it’s worn and washed over time. Unlike other raw denim jackets that need to be broken in for a month or two before they relax, this one drapes just right on the first wear.
