3sixteen DJ-BF1x 20th Anniversary "Burkina Faso" Type 3s Denim Jacket
3sixteen's 20th-anniversary type III features custom-woven fabric from Burkina Faso with unique indigo absorption and organic cotton, creating a sustainable, textured look.
What struck 3sixteen about this Burkina Faso cotton is the character in the weave; the cotton takes the indigo with slight inconsistency, and the neppiness of the yarns yields a slightly rough weave that gives the appearance of both vertical and horizontal streaking, an effect that we anticipate will show more clearly as the denim is worn in. The fabric comes in at a hair over 13.4oz when raw, but the brand is giving the finished garments a light rinse and tumble dry to bring out the blues further and give the garments a broken-in feel from day one. In addition, the yarns do not utilize any bleach when the raw cotton is scoured in order to reduce chemical usage and CO2 output.
This 13.4oz fabric is woven with all organic cotton, spun in a unique process that creates uneven twisted yarns, and then dipped in natural indigo from India, twice the amount of times of traditional rope dyeing methods. The yarns are also dyed in a new eco-dyeing process that reduces impact.
The 3sixteen Type 3s denim jacket pays homage to the classic Type III with a longer body, welt pockets, and an eye-catching cross back yoke that you don't get from anyone other than 3s.
