Description

Our very own, modern interpretation of the Type 3 jacket with a longer body, slimmer arms, and practical side pockets. Made from our Earth fabric. A perfect blend of 4 different types of cotton is used: California cotton, Texas cotton and two types of Supima Cotton from New Mexico and Arizona. American cotton, in general, is characterized by being hard, rough and a little oily. It is the perfect cotton for a sturdy selvedge fabric. The weft yarn is reactively dyed light-beige by cheese dyeing. The warp yarn is rope-dyed with pure indigo, sulfur dye, and a green cast indigo dye. The idea was to get those earthy colors mixed in with the indigo to get multiple color layers which will show with wear -- and the blue, green and beige were perfect to represent Earth. The jacket also features two hand-warmer pockets, and the symbolic Tanuki logo stitched on the shoulders.
