The TCB Seamens jacket is a faithful reproduction of the jacket initially worn by the US Navy in the ‘40s. It is one of the most iconic denim garments worn by the Navy during World War Two.
The fabric is a lightweight 10oz neppy selvedge denim 100% cotton indigo and grey dyed, so the colour is a beautiful deep blue shade. The slub and nep of this artful fabric produce snowy sprinkles of light-coloured highlights that arise gradually over its surface.
The buttons are decorated with the text US-Navy and an anchor symbol, just like the original ones. They are fastened to the garment with a small metal ring that allows to replace them.
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.
