Story:

I've always been a fan of the Trucker Jacket. The paragon of denim jackets during my youth, as I got older I was always on the search for the perfect example of the Type III (named as the third style of denim jacket Levi's designed). The 3Sixteen Type 3 denim jacket pays homage to the classic Type III design with a few notable differences. It begins with proprietary 12oz 120x shadow (indigo warp/black weft) selvedge denim that will fade with high contrast. The body has been slightly lengthened and hand pockets were added that are lined with a Japanese fine wale black corduroy. Absent from the jacket are the standard Type III back seams and waist cinches; 3Sixteen opted to give the back of the jacket a cleaner design by replacing the original yoke with their trademark crossed back.

Features:

  • 12oz raw indigo warp/black weft shadow selvedge denim woven in Okayama, Japan
  • Fine wale black corduroy pocket bags and cuff linings
  • Zig-zag stand collar reinforcement stitching
  • Gunmetal YKK shanks
  • Crossed back yoke
  • Made in USA

Fabric:

12 ounce indigo warp/black weft raw selvedge denim woven in Okayama, Japan

Sizing:

Designed to fit trim, but the sizing has been adjusted to be more true to size. I'm between sizes (a 42 chest) and bumped up to an L (though I'm an XL in the original). Going with the large created the slim fit I was after while still allowing for   layering flannels/hoodies under.
