As archetypal as it gets - the Type III Denim Jacket is immortal. Developed in the early 1960s, the Type III became the defining silhouette of Denim blousons, famously dubbed the ‘Trucker Jacket’ due to being favored by truckers who enjoyed its short silhouette that didn’t get in the way whilst seated for hours on end. Whether you’re drawn to the ‘knife’ seams that taper to the waist or the dual chest pockets, it’s hard not to love this classic silhouette and its rock ‘n’ roll aura.
Paying homage to the jacket’s 1960s roots, we chose to construct the black rendition of our Type III Denim Jacket from a super compact 14.5oz black x black selvedge denim complete with redline, honest to it's rocks and roll roots.
A short, fitted body with regular shoulder and sleeve width, a point collar, and cinch-tab adjusting waistband. The dual chest pockets and hems fasten with donut buttons, whilst the placket is fitted with proprietary Dawson-branded buttons.
Available only in limited numbers, each Type iii jacket is made in the Dawson Garage with Union Special chain stitching, Reese 101 buttonholes.
