Description

Our very own, modern interpretation of the Type 3 jacket with a longer body, slimmer arms, and practical side pockets. Made from the Kaze fabric, one of the lightest offerings for Tanuki. It is breathable, medium weight and vibrantly colored. Standing out for its unique shade of indigo, which is due to a lesser number of rope dye dips, it will decrease in the time of each dip and quicker exposure to oxygen after each dip. This also results in some greenish undertones in the denim. This lighter blue pays homage to vintage denim, dead-stock denim from the 1960s to the 1980s. The denim features a light indigo warp and cheese-dyed beige weft. The warp shows quite some loom-shutter, with frequent slubbing of small to moderate sizes. Thanks to the Peruvian Aspero cotton used and the extra low-tension weaving, the handle of this denim is textured but not rough. The combination of shorter staple Californian cotton and longer staple Supima cotton in the weft creates a balance between crispness and comfort.
