Warehouse 14oz 2001XX [Late 1940s Copper-Coloured Steel Buttons] Type 1 Denim Jacket

Size Guide

"King Of Vintage", we should crown Warehouse with this title as their fans do!

This denim jacket is inspired by some vintage Levi's type 1 denim jackets from WWII (the late '40s till early 50s), during that time, due to the shortage of materials, especially copper. Levi's decided to use iron buttons instead, to avoid the rust, Levi's used the Copper-Plating Technique to finish their buttons that we rarely see nowadays.

This 7.5 x 7.5 14oz pink selvage ID WWII style denim is newly developed by Warehouse for this type 1 denim jacket. It has some very rough touches but a smooth look. The cotton thread is pure indigo yarn-dyed, with wear and wash, you will expect some very bright indigo hues coming up with some deadstock vintage late '40s denim.

Construction-wise, we believe this is a top 3 type 1 denim jacket we have come across. We love the single cotton thread run-off in the collar & also chain-stitching run-offs in the hem. It is part of the design to represent 'Rush WWII Time'! The extra thick deerskin leather patch comes with veins that look TOUGH as the soldiers!

If you are looking for some most SOULFUL type 1 denim jacket designs, this is a surprise!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:
