The Steadfast 'Rider' 13oz Black Shadow Japan Selvedge Denim Jacket


( / )

Based on our Steadfast Jacket but with two major differences - gusseted shoulders and side hand warmer pockets. The shoulder gussets add another level of comfort and restriction free movement that's not typically available in traditional denim jackets. The secret ingredient to the gussets and the amount of movement they enable is the ability for them to open and retract using high quality 1.5" inch elastic bands which function similar to that of a gas strut. This ensures that every time the gusset is opened it will reset back to neutral and maintain the shape of the back and around the shoulder. Originally designed for the rider in mind this jacket also solves the issue for anyone who has felt frustrated with the restrictiveness of a basic denim jacket around the shoulder and armhole. 

The side hand warmer pockets are a practical addition to this style that is also a feature on our Ironside Jacket model. The inside of the jacket features an additional two interior pockets for a total of six pockets throughout the jacket.

    Model is wearing a Size M. This is a fitted jacket and would be considered running one size small when compared to our other jacket styles such as the Ironside. 

    Size up if you would like this jacket to fit like an Ironside.

      Black Shadow is a crisp double black from one of the worlds best mills - Kaihara. Since 1893, Kaihara has excelled in the art of yarn dyeing, making them the go-to experts that other denim mills consult for their own dyeing needs. The warp yarn is a black sulfur dye and the weft is a reactive dye which means this selvage will fade just like your favorite indigo pair. There is a subtle Slub characteristic in the warp yarns. This technique adds visual depth and character, appealing to those who appreciate a unique, heritage feel in their jeans.
