Ironside Sherpa Jacket 13oz 'Dark Sky' Japan Selvage Denim


( / )

The Ironside Sherpa Jacket

If there is a jacket that embodies the spirit of the outdoors, it's the denim sherpa. Aggressively functional in its ability to keep you warm and dry there is no substitute for a more hard wearing, ready-to-work jacket. Based on the classic Type III style this iconic American design is consructed from a 13oz Japanese selvage denim and a moisture wicking, deep pile faux sherpa lining which mimics the original sheep wool garment that has been worn since the dawn of mankind. The poly-acrylic lining, when bonded to a heavier denim shell creates a tough, wind proof option that insulates against the cold. The arms are lined with a 1/4 inch nylon taffeta quilted to poly lining that provide the same level of insulation and moisture wicking properties as the sherpa.

A 13oz organic cotton woven in Japan. Crafted with an intensely dark, saturated indigo warp, this denim boasts a deep, rich hue that exudes a  rugged charm. The use of organic cotton for the weft yarn imparts a natural, unbleached color, distinct from the conventional bleached white, lending the fabric a unique vintage tint that subtly bleeds through to the face. This choice of material not only ensures an eco-friendly approach but also adds a visible nep to the texture, a testament to the authentic character of organic cotton. Proudly grown and sourced in the USA, this denim is a celebration of American heritage, combining sustainable practices with timeless style.

Fully cut and sewn in Los Angeles with the strongest poly-core cotton thread this jacket is built to last. Even though functionality is the core design motivation, there is a stylish, yet understated ruggedness that elevates the sherpa denim jacket to the pinnacle of timeless American Heritage design.

Buy true to size for regular fit and if you plan on layering with flannel then size up.
