Proudly DESGINED and MADE in Kojima, Japan, only by TCB crews.
We have made this jacket in reverence of one of the oldest denim browse found in the world. The unique details from those days are the triple pleats, pure indigo dyed fabric and the flat fell seam sewing by single needle. Like we did on the Waist Overall, we have reproduced the jacket meticulously and faithfully.
Flat fell seam sewing
It used to be this laborious method to produce a clothing when chain stitching and lapping seam sewing were not common in the 1800’s. With this finish, the seaming will be straight, looking neat both on the outside and inside. It might be a good idea to wear the jacket inside out, showing the clean inner side
Collar and Collar Stand
These two used to be combined together back then.
There are several hypothesis why they used to be tripled. No one knows what’s right but it does render the jacket a bit of tailor-made and formal looking for a workwear.
The fabric is dyed with pure natural indigo to make the color as close to the original as possible.For the original 1880 jeans, hank dyeing was the common way so that the fabric did not really fade.
No worries, we are TCB! We dyed the fabric in Rope-dye to make the fabric ring-dyed so that you can enjoy the fades as much you expect for TCB.
Going in and our of the natural indigo pool for 8 times. The warps are thread size 10, the weft being 12, making the fabric 8 OZ.
