Freewheelers Lot. 506XX 'The Vanishing West' '1944-45' Type-I Denim Jacket - One Wash


Only 1 piece in stock!

The Vanishing West range of denim by Freewheelers has gained itself an enviable reputation amongst denim purists, and with good reason. This brand put a wealth of knowledge into everything they do, and overlook no detail in the production process. This 1933 Type-I model denim jacket features nuanced detail such as a slightly smaller branded button, which has been lightly coated in anti-rust, and a wider spread collar than other versions.

Cut in a short, boxy shape from a rinsed 14oz fabric, this iconic jacket offers a selvedge button plate, sewn in knife pleats, a single chest pocket with punch through copper rivets and button flap, and a custom manufactured cinch buckle to adjust the shape of the waist. Sizes 44 and 46 offer a period correct 'T-Back' construction.
