What about Jeans Jackets ....

Recommended Posts

Guest redchris
I have always liked the 101j but it does not suit my body type . This one is really nice and in v good condition for the price . Hope it suts you .

Thanks mate. I was a bit concerned about the lowish price it went for and it appears that it aint from the 50's.

I was looking for a bit of reassurance that I haven't been f*cked over, especially with the stinging shipping price .

Just got this beautiful Type 1 from Roy6 last week. Made on Valencia St. in 1999. I've been after something made on Valencia for awhile and also wanted a Type 1 so this was a perfect marriage of the two.

Just picked this jacket up from the Gap along with a new pair of their Skinny Selvedge jawnz. that'll be #2 for me as far as gap unwashed selvedge jeans go. i've been kinda impressed with what the Gap has been doing lately with their denim actually.

This jacket is indigo dyed with black overdye, so BLACK -> BLUE -> WHITE.. hopefully.. plus its like, thermal lined and shit. so its warm-ish. SHWAHHHH!

EDIT: the only thing i'm not stoked on is that its fading already, and i bought it on 11/10/10.... it would be KINDA NICE to have a black denim jacket for a while at least

Anyone else all hot and bothered by this Pendleton x Levi's collab like me?

Is this gonna be a pretty limited deal? I dig but I would love to wait and see in person when I'm home.

^ I checked it out yesterday...it was at the normal Levi's store if that gives any indication on availability.

I liked it a lot, I don't know that much about jean jackets but the materials and construction seemed solid to me; denim is really rigid and feels like it'll break in nicely, and it's definitely a big step up quality-wise from their standard jackets. I haven't handled lvc so I can't compare though.

I also think the wool sections are a really nice touch too, attention getting without being too obnoxious (the girl I was with assured me I could pull it off even though my style is pretty subdued).

So yeah, there's my amateur take on it. I've been searching out a good jean jacket for a while and for about $60 more than their standard offerings this is pretty much perfect for me. probably gonna get it this week

Thanks for the info, dude! I'd love to see some fit and detail pics when you bring it home!

I'm hoping another levis.com coupon will pop up some day soon

its done with class which is why i like it and watching the Bare/broncs VBS video and they way it fit on that Navajo rodeo rider made it look even better, looked a half size too big but once he gets his 1st soak/wash it'll fit great i bet.

Real cowboys wear Wranglers or Levis 517s (slim to tight), and wouldn't wear a $150 denim jacket. Nice try though with that image Levi's.

From being at an 'After Party' at a pro rodeo in Idaho last year, I can tell you that those guys all wore very tight Wranglers with a lot of stacking and almost all pale blue. I don't think I saw a single pair of Levis. It was a very surreal scene.

that's because the pro rodeo is dominated by wrangler. Plus, Wrangler has stuck pretty much to just one demo... the rodeo cowboy.

The 13mwz is the classic, super tight, "rodeo' model. Probably still worn by alot of cowboys out west. Can't remember the last time I saw an eastern cowboy (dairy farmer) wearing a pair. They wear Rustlers, as do many mechanics, machinists, etc. In rural NWPA, I see very few guys wearing Levis. Mostly off brands, Rustlers, a few Lees, and the occassional Levis (505s or 550s, no 501s).

i really like the levi's/pendleton jacket and might buy it for a thanksgiving gift to myself

http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4190851&cp=3146842.3146843.4305597

thanks in advance

That Levi X Pendleton jacket is probably good for those cold night in the high desert. I used to live near the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona shown in the video and the scenery really is breathtaking. The drawback is it really is in the middle of nowhere.

I used to work at the NYC Levi's store on 14th st between 5th and 6th ave and we carried all of the Levi's X Filson stuff so I would think that they would have the Pendleton stuff by now. Not too sure if the Soho or Times Square stores would carry it.

Here's a little change of pace. Gore tex and raw denim? Just in time for snowboard season got this little gem off ebay.
