Even better than vintage! This season we are proud to bring you Freewheelers' classic 507xx 14oz Type 2 Denim Jacket!
When we first experienced this denim many years ago in their LOT 601XX 1951, we were shocked by the level of attention to detail and texture of the denim! The pattern is based on the famous Levi's type II jacket design beloved by 50s movie stars & rockers alike!
Freewheelers specially-developed 140z denim has been slowly woven on vintage shuttle looms to produce the perfect weight, slightly neppy textured fabric with tasteful vertical patterns! The denim has been yarn-dyed indigo resulting in some of the most beautiful sky-blue fading we have ever seen!
Upon first glance, one of the standout details is the prominent, enamel-coated riveted buttons. The enamel itself will gradually fade to a lighter shade and chip with long term usage resembling some of the rarest vintage Levi's examples. Such a tasteful detail! The rear side adjusters allow for the perfect fit and compliment the overall silhouette. Compared with Freewheelers Type I jacket, this features a slightly larger collar design which adds to the tasteful vibe! For the largest sizes, FW has slightly altered the pattern to include a T-back - just like some vintage Levis samples!
If you plan on rocking the full Canadian Tuxedo, we think this denim jacket matches beautifully with Freewheelers 601XX 1951 denim jeans!
If you are looking for one of the highest-end versions of the timeless type II denim jacket, Freewheelers is it!
