• As a denim brand, a Trucker style jacket is up there as one of the essentials. A truly ubiquitous silhouette, the denim trucker transcended its workwear roots to become an undeniable staple for people from all walks of life.  However, being loaded with the knowledge of this historical style comes the responsibility to produce our own signature jacket that honours the timeless trucker details without simply imitating one of the classics.

    We took the blueprints of times past and blended elements of archetypal Trucker jackets to create our Type II Jacket. It features the classic pleated front of the Type II, yet the profile of the body lends itself more to the classic Type III but with extra length in the body and side adjusters.

    The denim is a heavyweight redline raw selvedge denim, woven in Japan on rare 1920s shuttle looms. Weighing in at 16 oz. this denim is for the brave, dyed super dark we expect to see high contrast fades so avoid those light colour surfaces for the first few washes.

    Each jacket is handmade in our Brighton workshop, signed and numbered by its maker, and finished with Reese 101 buttonholes, ornate cuff stitching, and an internal hunters pocket sized perfectly for tablets and smartphones.
