Does anyone know about the Sugar Cane type 1 repro?

I have a few denim jackets, but I only wear two, and even then they get put on seldomly. One is distressed, and the other is what I have come to know as a "one wash". For me the problem is I wear jeans 99% of the time, and though when it looks good, denim on denim is ok, I personally find it hard to make look good, or as some would say "pull off."

Wow, someone that still walks around wearing blackface. Interesting.

What about the jackets that are cut like a sportcoat? Anybody have success pulling those off?

Yes, they are. I actually really liked his take on the Levis 506 a few seasons back. He stripped it down, taking away the pleats and the buckle back, and left just the oversized chest pocket, small collar, and slightly boxy shape. Very cool. He did a version in brown flannel twill as well, which looked really nice.

Stole these pictures from ko's Supermarket post.
Had you ever consider this jacket?
It is a super nice looking Atelier LaDurance Royal jacket!

I've seen that jacket (in Spain, last summer). It is pretty cool, and very in tune with Atelier la Durance's aesthetic, but I find that their jackets are a little too busy - heavy contrast stitching in various colors, the logo leather tag, pleated detail - all a little too much. And they do not fit me. At all. Atelier La Durance makes things *really* big.

Still, a better jacket than about 90% of available jackets though.

agreed. too busy for me also.

I think the ALD jacket looks really cool, but something about it screams "urban hiphop wear" to me, which is a bad thing. Maybe it's because of the busy-ness. I'd def like it more if it didnt have the blue stitching on the pockets. The Nudie conny takes my vote for coolest modern denim jacket.

I'm very satisfied with my raw APC denim jacket. I also own a vintage Levi that's slightly bigger for heavier layering. I don't mind doing the Texas tuxedo look though, someone who doesn't might not wear their denim jackets as much.

I wonder if anyone has actually produced a denim jacket that's actually cut like a tux jacket. That would be the ultimate Texas tuxedo.
