48 (XXXL)


The TCB '50s jacket is a reproduction of the iconic Vintage Levi's 507 XX (2nd Type) with a paper patch. It is made with unsanforized 13,5oz denim fabric. From the fabric to sewing to silhouette, it is made with care down to the last detail. It has two front pockets in the chest, double needle-stitched and waist clinch.

The fabric is proprietary TCB unsanforized denim. It is made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton, rope-dyed, and has a slubby and irregular texture. It has the natural unevenness such as unstable thread thickness and irregular tense on the fabric made by a vintage loom, not by the mainstream methods of the computer regulation. The trademark Zimbabwe cotton will show beautiful grain fades.

The fades start showing as white dots appearing in the beginning and then each dots will get connected together. As a result, it will show so beautiful vertical fades like the authentic vintage pieces.

On the double-stitch sewing on the front pockets, you can see a small triangle shape made of two stitch lines, which was made thanks to the vintage two-needled sewing machine. After attaching the pocket, the pocket flap is sewn in one-go so that you can see the stitches at the back of the flap. The bartucks are also faithfully reproduced in terms of the width, the thickness and where they are applied.

As for the paper patch, at around the timing when the fades start to look great, the patch starts to be torn apart, showing the dark blue from the inside, which we know all of you love.

Both the unsanforized denim fabric and the jacket construction have been made in Kojima by Japanese denim craftsmen.

TCB modified recently the shape. Short summary on the updates on the new one:

- Size of collar: a bit smaller by 0.5cm
- Height of cuffs/waist belt:a bit wider and exactly as wide as the vintage one.
- Shoulder:+1cm
- Chest: +2cm
- Dress Length -1.5cm
- Sleeve length:-1cm
- Armholes:+3cm for the around- arm measurement

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.
