Freewheelers 14oz 506XX Type 1 Denim Jacket (1946-47 Version)

Size Guide

Back again, here's one of FW's most popular denim jackets! It's safe to say this Type 1 is ON-POINT!

Here we have their 1946 series denim jacket made from 5 different kinds of short fibre U.S cotton.

Using vintage machines, this denim has an incredible, irregular texture with clusters of white dots varying in size.

The vintage indigo dye makes up for a vibrant, blue sky look but with a deep tone! With time, this one will age up with some beautiful soft contrast and give off an exaggerated irregular texture!

With vintage-inspired chain stitch runoffs, contrasting denim lining in the pocket flap and a selvage re-enforcement in the pocket, this is a seriously detailed piece! For a perfect fit, you can always adjust the cinch back.

Compared to the 1943 version, this fits with slightly larger armholes and sleeves with a short vertical length.

Grab yours while you can, this is a choice for the SERIOUS denim guys!
