Sugarcane produce great Denim jackets for a good price. Especially if you don't mind ordering from Japan

Sorry if this is wrong thread to ask this question.

 

I've been looking for a vintages Levi's jacket for quite some time. I believe I came across one I like. It appears to be from mid 60s to 71 judging by pictures.

However, the washing label says made in Tunisia. Is this possible for an authentic 60s jacket?

I would have thought it was made in April 2001. According to the 0401. I think to remember that's how LVCs are also dated.

The freak is right, but this label is of a standart Red Tab jacket. An LVC label of that period should come up with 555 code,

for nearly all(not so the 554) LVC had been made exclusively at the Valencia Street factory back in the days...

There are a lot of 70500 "Slim Fit Trucker" jackets to find at ebay around 30-50 bucks at ebay.

Like Beautiful Freak said April 2001

And from the label the jacket can't be from the Big E era which ended in 1971

thiskibd of labels are newer then 1985

Can you post full front and back side pic?

That Tender jacket is great. What model is it?

 

 

EDIT: I since figure out it's model 900.

Sorry if this has been requested before but don't seem to find anything with a search.   Can anyone recommend a slightly longer fitting type 2-3.  I'm over 6 foot and lanky .  Preferable double indigo or black but fit is more important...thanks

Tcb 50s is long and slim fitting. Amazing fabric too but no double indigo or black.

3sixteen shadow selvedge or the new 40BSP are type 3 with a nice length. 

Every other denim jacket I've had has been to short in the body

I can second the 3sixteen shadow selvedge. Although if you want longer sleeves, might not be best, but really depends on your measurements.

The deep indigo warp and black weft gives it best of both worlds

Thanks for the reply.  I'm a 35" sleeve in a dress shirt....think the XL would be close?

@kbuzz  I am guessing you meant 25". Think you should be fine.

If you want longer length than 3sixteen shadow selvedge, then you should have a look at some of the sugar cane jackets.

Formal shirt sleeves are measured from the centre of the shoulder so 35 sounds right for a tall guy.

Thanks.   So do you think a 25 measured by the jacket method is close to a 35 for dress shirts?

Not sure mate. Measures your shirt from the outside shoulder seam or armpit  and compare lengths as that's how jackets are measured

Nice! Havn't seen those western shirts before. Have you got some pictures showing the full shirts?

I bought them more than 10 years ago, but I don't wear them since I lost lots of weight.

Also old warehouse clothing fit like true vintage, and so they are too loose (and too long) to me even though I always wear size 14:(

sharing some post overalls

as worn in recent waywt thread

then some details 

not strictly jeans jacket

a redoing of a chore cut in lighter weight cotton

a japanese vinage cloth (anyone know name of this kind of pattern?)

so not quite wabash and not quite chore

named 'engineers' released as a summer garment, i wear most in autumn almost like a shirt you wear jumpers under rather than vice versa

pairs nicely with tender jeans for their white stitching

raglan sleeves, chin strap, pencil pocket etc. 

wouldnt wear to stokes fires or chop wood, or do physical chores, an office bound workwear for sure

a nice fluctuation of decorative and utility (and much preferred to many of the p-alls patterns out there)

^^

thanks guys

no idea about what the dye is (nor how the pattern is created, but in my ignorance am wonder/guessing if it is same process as wabash, but far more detailed): certainly it has an indigo feel / look: had it a few years, but not washed frequently to see what its fades do... 

but is super soft, and softening over time... particularly with the softening scoop of the bottom pockets

[failed to mention it has an inner chest pocket too...]
