The new version of the Type 3s denim jacket pays homage to the classic Type III design with a few notable differences. 3sixteen's additions and tweaks to the classic design make sense, a longer body, welt pockets, Japanese corduroy lining, and an eye-catching cross back yoke that you don't get from anyone other than 3s. They went ahead and removed the back waist cinch, and the back seams down the back were also removed, but you likely won't even notice they're gone.
The fabric is the flagship 14.5oz 220x double black selvedge Japanese denim from Kuroki mills that will fade to grey with heavy wear. The jacket also features two flap pockets on the chest, button closure, YKK shanks, new black doughnut buttons, zig-zag stitching on the collar stand and a suede leather patch inside made by Tanner Goods.
The brand has made significant updates to this jacket's fit based on feedback they have received over the years. The chest and arms have been opened up significantly, and the jacket features a more relaxed fit overall. Please double-check the updated measurements before purchasing, especially if you've owned a Type 3s jacket from us in the past.
Founded in LA by Johan Lam and Andrew Chen over a decade ago, 3sixteen's philosophy is evident in pieces they've developed since 2008: shirts, jackets, basics and accessories all take cues in form and function from their jeans. Fabrics and trims are always chosen for their capacity to develop character with time. 3sixteen aim is that, with diligent wear, the customers are rewarded with something well-aged, never "old."
