Got this sweet package this morning from Danny at Rivet and Hide. Only two days shipped from London to the U.S. so insane! Pure Blue Japan Deep Indigo Jacket in a Medium. Fit is spot on! A little snug across the back, but that'll break in a bit.

Keep us updated on this one mate. I bet it will look awsome with some wear.

Vintage foremost jacket... 1960s I think... Worn from raw for the past 7 years.

Edit because I found my post from 07 when I found it... Still amazed I only paid 8$ for it

X-Post from the Sugar Cane thread...

 

Hey guys, I just picked up a Sugar Cane Type III and thought I'd share some photos. I'm pretty stoked on this — it was a great value, fantastic denim for the money. It's only had about 2-3 days of wear. No soak, but it's a one-wash.

I'm thinking to get a denim jacket this month, but not quite sure which one is better in between Evis type1 or Levis , is there any suggestions for me...

I would definitely go with the Evis one. can't recall that I have even seen an Evis jacket while Levi's jackets are pretty common and you will be able to get one later on if you still want to.

Yes, definitely get the Evisu jacket (and even more so if you've found an Evis version). A year or two ago, I bumped into this Japanese dude at an outlet village near London who was wearing a stunning Evisu type I jacket. The denim was so good I had to start a denim bro-down with him.

Ergh, meant to upvote. That's some crazy fading man, loving the elbow combs.

no worries, it happens! I guess what they say about Cone is true, it gets better and better with washes.

This is my denim jacket a got from the guys at Blue Highway denim in Sweden a couple years ago. I don't remember so much about the denim other than it is in Japanese selvage. I'm sad I haven't used it so much but when it's warmer outside I will start using it again!

Very interesting design on that jacket. What else do you know about the brand?

 

Edit: Doing some quick research, it a Swedish brand (already stated) started by two brothers, Douglas and Hampus Luhanko. Both are vintage denim collectors and owe a great amount of their knowledge to famed vintage collector Michael Allen Harris, with whom they spent some time searching for "blue gold"--old mining workwear--in the Nevada desert. Both brothers are self-taught sewers, and draw heavily from the vintage pieces they have collected throughout their travels as well as 1920-40s blues and workwear.

 

About the products themselves:

Unchromed leather patches, nice touch. Unique coin pocket (the brand reminds me a lot of Stevenson, especially here). 100% single lockstitch construction. No hidden rivets. Hand picked fabrics, sourced from eBay and smaller denim mills.

 

What a cool brand!

They also own(?) the store Unionville where they sell their stuff among other brands.

Likely going to order a SEXIH07IIIBK pretty soon, if anyone's got worn in pictures I'd love to see them.

I've seen a handful and they look very nice, especially since I'm want something a little different.

And if anyone's got one a rundown of your impressions would be awesome too!

i've been wearing mine for the last 7 months now and it's starting to wear in on the sleeves and placket with some faint light blues and grays coming out. I havent washed it yet but the fabric softened up a fair amount although the fabric on mine is slightly different from the current one we have. rather than showing a lot fading right now, it's gotten more worn in looking. I'm sure as i wear it more the fading will become more pronounced. the fabric is pretty windproof from the overdyeing. i can take pics of it when i get home

That denim is ridiculously intense. If you guys made a normal length type 3 with it sans pockets.... That'd be a duzy!

Thanks Young, I'd be interested in some pictures for sure.

The extra length helps me out because I'm fairly tall with a long torso.

Right now it's basically the only denim jacket that's really caught my eye.

And I really like the overdye denim, still a denim jacket but isn't too similar to whatever jeans I'm wearing.

Unless I wear my 634S-B.  :P

yeah the fact that they're black overdyed is a huge reason why i got it. i dont shy away from the denim tuxedo but for an everyday jacket it's nice having a jacket that is different. as tempting as it may be, i'd definitely recommend against wearing it with your 634s-b haha

Overdyed, extra length and hand pockets are all pretty ideal for me.

I think eventually I'll look into a type II that's more traditional if I end up liking the denim jacket look.

Considering I haven't worn a denim jacket since like elementary school.

Sorry for the double post but I pulled the trigger on the OD jacket today.

Hope it gets here before I head out of town for the holidays!

Very excited.
