I love Flat Heads brilliant bright blue vertical fades, wish they did something that would fit me..your jacket is awesome, will post my new jacket when it arrives-its only a vintage 90's Levis for Girls jacket, but was very inexpensive until I can buy a better one..

Mine came, but it was too big, dirty and reeked of cigarettes so I've returned it and asked for a refund...

That jacket looks so good Vulcan, I especially love the third shot of the placket, such a great color.

What are your favorite non-indigo denim or denim-styled jackets? Other heavy fabrics (duck, cords,...) welcome...

I love my cotton duck ih type III. A barracuda Harrington is also nice, imo.

The IH duck type 3 is a strong contender... Cool fabric and versatile color.

Funny that duck is the definitive choice here, but it makes sense--duck tan is such a versatile color, esp paired with any shade of indigo, and the fabric is wonderfully adaptive, warm, breathable, hard-wearing and sheds water.. amazing!

anyway i have a sort-of type 2 from tenderloin that, for all the above reasons, has been my go-to jacket this long winter. highly recommended!

I like my moleskin french work wear jacket by Arpenteur very much. Similar to chore coats, durable and stylish, just look at late Bill Cunningham.

I've got the IH indigo colored duck type 3 also, it's very rigid fabric, capable of standing on it's own, recommended to spineless politicians.

As a light summer jacket I like the off white (or ecru) Lee 100J "Westerner", same cut and details as the 101J denim jacket but made of a light sateen fabric. Lee made one with/for J. Crew a few years ago, got mine on Ebay.

Thanks all. The IH duck indigo looks nice over time, but I'm looking for something specifically not indigo.

The Harrington is also a nice choice as it's easy to dress up.

Placed an order for the IH ducks type 3. I hesitated between this and a black denim type 3, as I wore one of those throughout high school. Finally decided that at 45 it was time to stop re-living high school...

The duck was the better choice imo. It's pretty soft for its weight and way more comfortable than the thick denim.

You couldn't ask for a better fit! What I love about type IIs are the broader shoulders...so comfy!

Has anyone had any experience with the TCB Type 3? I'm kinda partial to Type 3 and have a vintage Big E, however the sleeves are like an inch too long. Checked the TCB measurements on Denimio and they seem just right, but through reading all the threads it seems like they're not that popular. My other problem with the Big E is that the sleeves are too wide. It's kinda dumb, but it's not an aesthetic problem--they just don't get any creases in them. I've been wearing it for 6 months and still no creases. 

Anyway, let me know if you have experience with the TCB type 3 or if there's any other type 3s you love...

Also, if anyone wants to trade for mine--I'd totally be open to that.

Here ya go. Sorry for the crappy iphone pics. But more light really wouldn't help--the Big E is just super blue.

Also, obvs I might be living in denial that I'm just a Wrangler guy. Attached is my original and its backup.
