Our small lots of Japanese fabrics are some of our favorites not only because the quality is outstanding but we usually don't ever find it again. So is the case with this 13oz Tora selvedge - 'Tora' means tiger in Japanese which is appropriate for this fabric as it’s supple and strong. The 13oz drapes well and has an ease to it that makes it wear more like a heavyweight denim shirt and can be worn buttoned up without feeling constricted. A dense weave allows for a lot of surface coverage from the rope dye indigo yarns. The shade is a deep pure indigo with a very visible ‘nep’ to the face. The grey weft yarn offsets any predictability and sets this jacket up to be a specimen of artisanal craftsmanship. A head turner and perfect for the summer months when you need a lighter weight jacket for the evenings.
The Ironside is the second addition to our jacket selection. The fit is our most universal denim jacket fit for guys as opposed to our Steadfast jacket that is a slim fit. The silhouette is straight on the body with armholes and sleeves designed for maximum mobility and comfort, featuring a total of six exterior/interior pockets incl. side welted, hand warmer pockets that offer style and functionality. Wear it over a white tee shirt or under a vintage leather jacket, its hard to go wrong with this iconic garment.
