The TCB '30s jacket is a reproduction of the iconic Vintage Levi's 506XX (Type I). This jacket first appeared in the early 1900s and identifiable by its 506XX lot number. The cut is modified to fit into your daily wardrobe with slimmer chest, longer dress length and slimmer armholes. It is made with unsanforized 12,5 oz fabric made of Memphis cotton. From the fabric to sewing to silhouette, it is made with care down to the last detail.
It features one front pocket, double needle-stitched, deerskin leather patch a two-prong cinch back and iron buttons that will rust with age and add great patina to the garment.
The fabric is proprietary TCB unsanforized denim. It is made with 100% Memphis cotton, rope-dyed, and it is the perfect lightweight fabric for a spring-summer denim jacket.
Both the unsanforized denim fabric and the jacket construction have been made in Kojima by Japanese denim craftsmen.
TCB (which stands for Two Cats Brand or Taking Care of Business) is a Japanese label founded in Kojima by Hajime Inoue in 2012. It specializes in reproductions of the classic American denim icons produced from the 1920s to the 1960s. Among his garments, we can find some of the highest-quality reproductions we have ever seen, made in his own workshop on sewing machines more than a hundred years.
