What about Jeans Jackets ....

Recommended Posts

I like that jacket a lot! i think the type 2 is my favorite but i like that pocket style a lot more than the usual type 3 pockets.

I really regret selling my size S Levis trucker but I lost a lot of weight and now need size XS

 

i can't find the wash I want, so either I wait, or buy a similar jacket in another brand....

Kapital sumi dyed Century Denim Western. I've been wearing it a lot the past couple of days since it arrived. Even though this is the longer version, I'd say it's still pretty short compared to most other jackets, though for the lee western cuts I suppose that is to be expected. I went with size 42 long same as my oni jackets, though this is definitely a more fitted cut then either of those. Cold soaks only.

Nice jacket. Looks a tad narrow on you maybe?

I love this great looking denim jacket and fitting perfectly to your hardcore faded jeans aquino

I'd say the Kapital 44 long fits like most other makers' 42.

On you it's snug, but looks still good. Not sure, how comfortable it is to wear, though.

Yes perhaps a bit narrow, esp compared to a type two or three. It is interesting, the snugness that is presenting itself in the photo now that i look at it (the fabric stretching around the bottom buttons) is from wearing the jacket buttoned while sitting. While actually standing, it doesn't pull at all.  I suppose this is mostly a function of wearing the jacket dry after I had soaked it. It has apparently taken a mold of my torso while sitting and is maintaining that shape even after standing up. Maybe not the best decision after all haha.

It's highly likely that it will loosen in the next few days.

I've found a BNWT grey acid wash XS Levis jacket, but I Really wanted a blue one.

not sure what to do as Levis currently aren't doing acid wash...wait for a new blue one or get the grey one ?

i wanted to keep it a long time so I guess hang out for a blue one...but I'm naturally impatient and the grey one is a good cut for me..???

You can't even stand up up when you're wearing it?!

It's a great jacket, but you Definitely need a bigger size!

cant you exchange on the Supermarket?

I think you misread what he said. He can stand in the jacket but it's just maintaining the shape as if he were sitting. I personally don't see a problem with it, it looks good and would likely happen anyway at some point

It certainly looks better unbuttoned. I think the first jacket is your best fit, but hard to judge while unbuttoned. Good work on those jackets anyway!

Your Kapitalee fit is certainly in line with the lookbook fits ;) But as you said before those jeans are pretty low rise, right? My sz 42 measures 63cm down the front after a cold soak, just out of interest, how long is yours?

Thanks! Yeah the fit is adjusting nicely, got some extra room in the shoulders after a couple of days. On my jacket, measuring from the highest part of the top seam to the hem is right at the 62 cm mark which is the same as the size chart from sculpstore. Interesting that your kakishibu version is a cm longer!

...well I did pull on the waist band like crazy when it was still wet ;) Could also be just a measuring error. Once my jacket softened up a bit I'll take proper measurements.

@Cucoo and @aquino - that Kapitalee sashiko jacket has now become one of my favorite denim heritage/repro jackets. I'd need at least a 44 tho. Thanks for sharing and enlightening me on this piece. It's really awesome.

I've only worn it for the second time today but I'm really, really satisfied with it. Can't wait to see how it'll look in a few years.
