What about Jeans Jackets ....

Recommended Posts

I ran across this original, lined Type II Jacket at a garage sale about 20 years ago. I've worn it a coupe of dozen times since. I didn't know what I had until last week. Can anyone recommend a way to determine its value? I've seen similar for sale, but I'm sure condition matters...

shameless plug: I'm selling the newly released Red Cloud denim jacket and the TCB Type II in case anyone is interested

 

my search for the perfect denim jacket continues. I am considering the Mister Freedom Ranch Blouse or the Trophy Dirt Denim Jacket

^May I ask what you didn't like about them? I've found my perfect denim jacket in the Fullcount Type 1 for what it's worth.

the red cloud was just a little too narrow in the shoulders: 16 inches for a 41 inch chest(I would have preferred 17-18inches)

 

the TCB had the right shoulder width but the chest was a little too narrow.

 

the next size up would have been too big and sloppy for both jackets.

Not sure if you'd be able to find it, but the 2001 from warehouse is brilliant, nice modernized "type II"

@Goodrain__ sorry for the misfire

Intended to posrep for the RC sizing cuz I was considering it. I'd prolly just go for the TCB chore instead.

^^How's the fit on the 2001? What would you call modern?

Quite a bit slimmer through the chest, and a cinch on back.

Have to say Goodrain, I've never seen anyone look bad in a Ranch Blouse. If the measurements look like they'd work may be worth going for it.

Goodrain just note, the buttons are on the inside of the sleeve for the ranch blouse. I was looking into it a few years ago as well and when I tried it on, I didn't realize it would bother me so much. It just feels weird, to me at least. Another one of those things that can screw you, never thought about inside button placement, or even knew that the ranch blouse had that...

^^ Aye, Levi's 506 also has the buttons placed on the inside. Felt weird the first couple of weeks but I don't ever think about it now.

Anybody who has ever had to spend $5,000 on a table will appreciate having buttons on the inside of a cuff.. more designers should do this!

Sorry, you're saying that because the buttons won't scratch? I just mean that on the ranch blouse the buttons are on a different part of the wrists (insides rather than the outsides). The buttons can still scratch just as easily... And it feels super weird too, to me at least.

But if your hands are on the table, and the buttons are on the outside of the cuff, generally the buttons would be rubbing against the wood, yeah? I can't imagine how that would happen when the buttons are on the inside of your wrists..

I definitely can't be sure since I didn't pay much attention after I realized that orientation felt uncomfortable. I guess if you guys are frequently in contact with 5k tables, then it's a nice feature... lol

well hey, I wouldn't know, never having experienced the ranch blouse.. it just sounded like a well thought-out detail; the scratches on my expensive-arse furniture come from many sources (here's lookin' at you, kids)

It's twice as annoying on a $10,000 table though ;)

One thing I find interesting is the tightness in combs from my left to right arm, not sure why it's like that tbh
