Got a nice APC dry denim jacket today, just wanted to point out that this is a great piece. I tried to find a picture on the apc website but couldn't find it anywhere... The jacket looks like a 507XX second type (pleated, 4 silver buttons, looks to be Selvedge, same back as the 507XX) but the two pockets are buttonless and there's an additional vertical stitching line on the back, ending at the bottom buttons nearest the center. It might be another model number as all the 507XX I've seen had buttons on the pockets. I'm definitely not a Levi expert so please help me. As all the other APC pieces that I have that aren't jeans, the jacket was made in France and is of excellent quality. The fitting is still a little off as it's a perfect fit at medium and I usually wear small. According to a fact sheet provided with the jacket: "The fabric used for this article has all the characteristics of a true indigo dyed denim (partly artisanal dyeing method)." Now if I'm correct that's pretty much saying they're like all the other "indie" denim brands (their own jeans, Nudie, Earnest sewn and their ilk...) and is basic marketing but I could also be wrong about that.
