Type 3 Jacket - Shadow Selvedge 12 oz
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.

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.
