Jean Jacket made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese dark blue line raw selvage denim (sanforized). Two exterior side pockets, two chest pockets and two interior pockets. Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA
This jacket of ours ain't nothing new. Levis claims to be the first to make it back around 1880 and we tend to believe them since, well, they brought the 5 pocket jean to life some time before that. Since then, it has become an iconic item in the denim lexicon. One that matches the attachment a person has for their favorite pair of jeans.
I remember "misplacing" mine a few years ago. When I realized it was not in my car or my closet, I sort of panicked and got in my car to retrace my steps around town (and county) looking for it like a lost dog. 50 or so miles later, no jacket. It was as if someone cut off my pinky. Not the worst thing that could happen. Handling a fork would be the same. Waving to someone would sort of be the same. If it was a new jacket that I lost, far less pain. The fact is that my jacket was really broken in and when I had it on, I always thought how shitty it would be if it were ever lost or stolen. Fast forward a few weeks, my wife was getting things organized in our room, which meant putting away a fairly large stack of clothes. Well looky there! My jacket on the bottom of that stack laying there like the guy on the bottom of a dog pile that just unpiled...
Back to our jacket- Our 12.5 oz Selvedge Jean Jacket gobbled up the very last of our Cone Mills White Oak denim. We added side pockets which also double as interior pockets and cut it about an inch longer in length compared to some you may find in a vintage shop so when you reach down to pick up the pen you dropped while you were writing your mom a birthday card, your jacket won't creep up half way up your back.
Best jeans jacket I have ever owned
Great match with my Gustave Slim Tapers and boots. Very high quality of course thats mandatory from Tellason. I really like the fit but personally would like it to be a little more slim at the waist but thats purely subjective and nitpicking. Very happy with this jacket that will last me for years. Cant wait to see how it fades.
Have had this one over two years, and wear it constantly. I just soak it in the tub or sink and is has a great blue/black fade. Classic close fit denim jacket.
After trying at least 3 different premium jean jackets I finally found one that is cut and made properly here in the U.S.!
One of the best jean jackets I have ever worn. It takes me back to the 70s Levi and Lee two pocket trucker styles.
