3sixteen Type 3s Denim Jacket Washed 101x
3sixteen offers an alternative to traditional denim jacket aging with this jacket, known for its softness and year-round wearability. Crafted from indigo selvedge denim by Kuroki Mills, 3sixteen's unique washing process achieves a striking blue color while preserving the fabric's character and vertical streaking, creating an effect that's hard to achieve naturally.
Perhaps contrary to what a denim enthusiast has in mind when buying a denim jacket – wearing it daily to develop a unique appearance – at Redcast, we also aim to provide an alternative for those who would like to have a quality denim jacket in their wardrobe without the need for years of use to achieve that worn look.
The 12oz 101x jacket is the perfect solution. It's soft and suitable for year-round wear. It utilizes lightweight indigo selvedge denim woven by Kuroki Mills. In contrast to many other stonewashed denim jackets that often appear highly artificial, the blue color achieved through washing this 3sixteen jacket is simply astonishing.
Distressing on wear points, commonly seen on jeans and jackets, rarely matches up with the areas where a wearer's body moves, resulting in a strange, unnatural high contrast without any depth. Thus, when 3sixteen set out to develop the wash treatment for this jacket, those techniques were all off the table - no sanding, no laser distressing, no harsh chemicals. Instead, the 3sixteen team aimed to ensure that the fabric's character was not only preserved but also brought to the forefront, highlighting the beautiful vertical streaking characteristic of their denim as it ages.
Finally, 3sixteen sought to create an effect that, quite honestly, would not be achievable through natural wear. Unless the owner washes their jacket on a weekly basis (which, besides being a lot of work, would be an extraordinary waste of water), there's really no way to achieve the color exhibited here. They worked closely with a wash house in Los Angeles to develop a multi-stage process that includes a pumice stone wash, light bleach, and softeners to achieve the perfect shade of blue.
The cut offers a slight slim fit, adding a modern touch to its classic inspiration. Most people find it comfortable to go one size up in 3sixteen denim jackets compared to their 3sixteen shirts. For instance, if you typically wear a size M in 3sixteen shirts or other American brands, you'll likely find a suitable fit with this jacket in size L. However, individual body types can vary, so, as always, we recommend consulting our size chart for the perfect fit.
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."
