Modern Raw Denim Jacket

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone!

 

I'm new in this forum, but i've been a menswear enthusiast for quite some time.

 

I'm thinking about getting a denim jacket for spring/summer. I like the Rogue Territory Supply Jacket and the Tellason Coverall Jacket.

Does anyone know any other jackets similar to those two - modern raw denim jackets or engineer coats?

 

Cheers

Marc

What are, for you, the most important features?

There are a lot of modern denim jackets, from Robert Geller to Big John.

It should be/have

 

- raw denim

- trim fit (but not too slim)

- a clean front and back (no extra horizontal and vertical seams like on the Levi's Trucker Jacket)

- one or two breast patch pockets (no flap pockets)

- preferably some side pockets (patch pockets or slash pockets)

- at least one inside pocket

No flaps on the front pockets?  That is going to be really tough for a denim jacket, most of which are modeled after or inspired by the Levis or Lees models.  The best I can think of off the top of my head is something from MA+, but that's not raw denim.  Why no flaps on the from breast pockets, which are nearly always a feature?

Maybe the Tellason Palmer jacket (http://ironandresin.com/products/tellason-palmer-jacket-14-75-oz-selvage), but I think that you already have that covered.  With all of your criteria, you are really looking only at chore or engineer jackets, not at the trucker jacket style, I think.

This flecked raw denim jacket from Freenote has the type of pockets you mentioned. It's longer than a trucker type jacket so I don't know if that's an issue for you.

I just don't like the flap pockets, since i never need to close them. And i like the aesthetics of a patch pocket better.

The Palmer Jacket looks great, but unfortunately it's not available anymore.

This looks really good! But the size guiding isn't. No information about length and with and such, that's a bit of a risk ordering from Switzerland.

Email Andrew at Freenote with your measurements and any questions regarding fit and I'm sure he would be happy to help with sizing. They are a small company and provide great personal service.

I'd like something like this as well. 

 

That freenote  looks nice.

 

So far the closest I have gotten is something like a sack coat here:

Or this LVC special edition.

 

I'd really like to see more long jackets like the LVC .

Not completely to your specs, but a nice jacket: https://imogeneandwillie.com/jack-utility-coat

They look pretty cool too, especially the LCV jacket!

Though I still tend towards the Tellason Coverall Jacket, but I'll go to VMC Zürich soon and try some jackets on in person, it's very hard to determine what looks good just on screen.

I really like my 3sixteen shadow selvedge type-III (pic is not of me).  It is a modified version of a 'traditional' denim jacket though.  The tonal stitching does a good job of minimizing the 'trucker-ness' imo

I went to VMC Zürich last weekend to try on the Tellason Coverall Jacket, but unfortunately they didn't have it in stock and won't have it in the future anymore. The other denim jackets in the store were all winter-ready with heavy linings, so they asked me to come back in spring when the lighter models arrive.

I'm now gonna order the Coverall jacket directly from Tellason, since I need a pair of jeans as well. Thanks for all the other suggestions!

The Tellason Coverall Jacket arrived yesterday and it looks awesome!

The fit is excellent, and even better after I rinsed it in cold water.

I'm really happy with the jacket!
