We've always loved Sugar Cane's version of the classic 1950's style Type II denim jacket. They've gotten the denim feel right, the stitching is perfect, the iron buttons are classicly reproduced, and deer skin patch ages just as well as the denim itself.

Normally this jacket is available only in a one-wash indigo version. If you want an unsanforized denim jacket to age well over time we recommend buying a raw non-wash version. The industrial washing and drying softens the denim to the point where aging over time will be less defined (this is even more true on a denim jacket where wear is harder to come by), therefore we recommend doing the water soak of the jacket at home.

Sugar Cane has made a batch of these jackets exclusively for Self Edge in a non-wash raw black version.

This black fabric is Sugar Cane's newest denim, developed in-house over the past year and seeing its first use as a denim jacket. They've used two different black yarns to create this fabric. The warp (top) is made of a sulfur dyed yarn and the weft (underside) is made of a reactive pigment dyed yarn. This means the warp will fade over time from black to gray to white after many wears yet the weft will stay black and only fade to a medium gray very slowly. Two different black yarns, one denim, living on the edge.

Disclaimer: These jackets are made of raw unsanforized denim. When washed/soaked they will approximately 1.5" in the chest measurement, they will also shrink about .4" in sleeve length and .6" in body length.
