The TCB '60s jacket is a reproduction of the iconic Vintage Levi's trucker jacket (3rd Type) with a paper patch. It is made with unsanforized 13oz denim fluffy 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% San Joaquin valley (California) cotton. San Joaquin Cotton is made in the south of the Central Valley, vast farmland spreading in the middle of California. This farmland uses snow melting water from mountain ranges, and cotton is brought up in groundwater derived from this water.
For the sewing process, the core spun yarn threads in yarn count of 20 is used throughout this jacket.
The cut is also inspired in '60s popular type III jackets with a slightly slim fit.
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.
