What about Jeans Jackets ....

Recommended Posts

As long as you're wearing a very bright or very dark hoodie underneath, aint nothing wrong with the Denim top on denim bottom. and, if youre canadian, you probably already dress like this anyway.

Not really sure how I feel about denim jackets-on me at least-but I have been lusting after one of these for a while, and got one a little while ago in my size. It's 11oz selvage denim-and anniversary model by warehouse. It's actually called a closed front jumper/jacket 3001xx-hence me posting it here. Hope to get some more wear out of it when the weather gets a little warmer.

hmmm, this jacket is actually in storage, but i am pretty sure its a 'tunisian' one. i found out about apc in the late 90's, at which time im pretty sure all their denim was being mfg in tunisia. anyways, its a great jacket, been drycleaned a handful of times and washed once, i think. you can still see on the right hand pocket how the flap was bent by my nokia phone. remember how big those things were? a selvedge jacket, years before i knew anything about this sort of thing...

i just saw it and had to have it.

interesting history...yeah those nokia phones were huge. the combs on the arm are really nice!

if APC was started in 87, and by the mid 90s production had shifted to tunisia, then the made in japan stage must have been really short lived.

i found another shot. i had originally taken photos of these for this thread, months ago, then dropped it. glad you like it...

i think it was short lived. occasionally i have seen a piece that was mfg in japan, but by and large, its all the later stuff. even back then, some people said to me, you should have seen the stuff they were making years ago, it was amazing. i recently got the new catalog and its not very exciting. not sure if they are still making this jacket, but they most likely are. a classic.

A friend in Japan found me one. It wasn't cheap but I just loved it. It's a kinda copy of an old Levi Jumper from about 1900. I think the original is for sale on the warehouse website...

Hmmm...i'm a 38 actual, and since it goes over your head to get it on I needed a size 42. I did know of a guy that had a 38, but I reckon you'd def need a 42...don't know if they made a larger one than that...

why don't you try asking japanhookup or2000dB maybe they can help you out?:)

I have bought a new jeans (actually cord) levis engineered jacket - size small.

I have never bee sure how jeans jackets should be worn, should they be a snug fit, and how low should they fit.

Here's a few pictures, can you give you opinion whether this is too small

I think denim jackets can be worn in different ways, depending on personal style.

But that jacket looks good, arm length seems good, top to bottom aswell. If you can´t move in it, it´s too small imo. It looks pretty fitted when closed, but if you want it that way, its fine.

I am so jealous. I bet that thing is warm and pretty soft by now. It looks great.

I just bought a LVC Type III and it is kinda small. I can barely get it all buttoned up. I wonder if it will stretch out any? I know I can never let it touch water... wish I could return it for a size larger - but Levis is completely out.

Well I guess I agree with the Bobo that its up to the person and their own personal style. I feel that denim jackets should be worn tight on the arms, and the bottom of the jackst should hit you right at the waist. But thats only if you are wearing a cowboy type of denim jacket, like a Lee 101J or a Levi's 557.

BTW, sisterRay, that jacket fits you just right. Might even be a little loose!

thinkfilm- that Warehouse anniversary jacket is BADASS. I wish I could find one in a 46, but they don't make them that big!

you have my complete agreement. not usually a fan of graphics on the back of denim jackets, but this is pretty nice. the script is catchy :)
