Our most popular model : TCB 50's Jackets are made in reverence of the 50's vintage with the iconic paper patch and we have modified the shape to a slimmer chest with a longer dress length and tighter arms for those who prefer modern tight fit but not too much of it.
We've carefully studied a vintage piece TCB owns to every single detail from the shape to the yarn count for each seam. The fabric used is 13.5 OZ, made of Zimbabwe cotton. It has the natural unevenness brought by unstable thread thickness and irregular tense on the fabric made by a vintage loom, not by the main stream methods of the computer regulation.
The fades start showing as white dots appearing in the beginning and then each dots will get connected together. As a result, it will show so beautiful vertical fades like the authentic vintage pieces. On the double-stitch sewing on the front pockets, you can see a small triangle shape made of two stitch lines, which was made thanks to the vintage two-needled sewing machine.
After attaching the pocket onto the jacket, the pocket flap is also sewn in one-go so that you can see the stitches going all the way from the pocket to the pocket flap. The bar tucks are also faithfully reproduced in terms of the width, the thickness and where they are applied.
As for the paper patch, at around the timing when the fades start to look great, the patch starts to be torn apart, showing the dark blue from the inside, which we know all of you love.
