DENIM JACKET C.1920's
1920's denim jacket, an iconic item of Taiga Takahashi.
Taiga Takahashi liked denim brands called "store" more than Levi's. In particular, he liked J.C. Penny, which had a brand called Foremost. In particular, J.C. Penny, which had a brand called Foremost, started making denim that imitated Levi's in the 1920's, and gradually developed designs with originality. Collecting those denims, we felt their will to differentiate from Levi's through trial and error in every detail and took over their will, and TaigaTakahashi's original denim was born.
This 3/1 left twill, light-ounce denim is made from U.S.-grown organic cotton and woven on an old-style power loom in Okayama, Japan. The denim fabric is slowly woven on an old-type power loom, also known as a shuttle loom, which can weave at only 1/10 to 1/20 the speed of modern looms, leaving the original unevenness of the cotton yarns and making it uneven in a good sense.
The warp yarn is indigo mixed with sulfide dye, and has a weathered green cast color. Rope
The dye is dyed to a core white. The weft yarns are custom nep yarn dyed to a yellowish, yellowish generation that evokes the passage of time. By using these two types of yarns, we arrived at Taiga Takahashi's original dark and deep indigo blue.
The finishing touch is a shrink-proofing process called "Sanforized.
The fabric is a "white ear" selvedge denim fabric, and the white ear is used on the front flap, the back of the cuffs, and in various other areas.
This jacket has a patch pocket on one side only, and a simple stitch to stop the pleats on the front.
The silhouette is a straight sleeve and shoulder. The silhouette is flat with straight sleeves and no sloping shoulder line.
The silhouette is finished with straight sleeves and shoulder lines with no shoulder slant.
The custom-made engraved buttons and back are all made of iron, and since they are not plated on the surface, they will rust over time.
All details are reproduced exactly as they were made in the 1920s.
The signature leather patches are mud-dyed in Amami-Oshima.
