Only 1 piece in stock!

New in from Freewheelers’ sub-label, The Vanishing West, is this brilliant interpretation of the jacket that started it all; The Type I. This particular version is based on the 1940 model and features details which have been an essential part of this jacket’s history for eighty years. This is the shortest cut of all the ‘type’ jackets and features a boxy shape, and a slight drop off of the shoulder.

A single chest patch pocket adorns the trucker’s pleated selvedge chest plate, and a cinch-back is included to bring the waist in to your preferred fit. The cuffs are riveted for durability and the jacket features reinforced buttons throughout. The denim is a comfortable 14oz selvedge which has been rinsed to take out any excess shrinkage. This is a beautiful interpretation of a timeless jacket and makes a great addition to any denim enthusiast’s wardrobe.
