Only one size left on SOP, but if you can find one, foot alternative to the Yuma
Looks amazing but the sleeve length looks short. Ben was rocking a 40/M on IG and the length worked for him at 5'10 but I'd be screwed on length. That's always my biggest worry with Japanese brands not made specifically for N. American market.

Grabbed the pink thumper, tan cast 1, and the roku yuji rider. I don't need any of this, especially the rider, but why not.

The Yuji rider at that price is a steal. I ended up grabbing the Hemi and Os hoodies yesterday. The only other thing I wanted was the black og dual flash but no sizes.

Are there any size charts available for the blackmeans blue-ivory rider jacket? I wanted to get one for the fiance and I'm trying to find the charts for an XS/0 but to no avail. Wasn't sure if there were separate women's/ men's sizing.

Not sure if you're aware, but the pink jacket being sold at the sample sale is not the recent pink thumper that dropped - it is the Bryce natural dye terrain jacket

Hm, now I'm confused on what I'll actually get. No biggie either way. The Eclipse page matches the product images of the new thumper (and color name), but says Type II vs Type III. Why do you think it's the Terrain?

I redacted my previous statement because I noticed the pink thumper listed under type II (even though it is type III)

A lot of retailers really don't know their denim jacket types.
This is not “a lot of retailers” don’t know their denim jackets, this is a lot of people in general don’t know the different types. A lot of you guys on here don’t know the differences.


It’s a type 2 jacket. The current denim jacket that JE sells is a type 2 jacket. The cord thumper is a type 3 trucker.

The OG thumper was a modified type 2 jacket with one chest pocket and hand warmer/pockets. (The one chest pocket is actually very similar to a type 1, I guess you could say it is a type 1 jacket in the front and a type 2/type 3 in the back, but now we are getting very technical and confusing)

The previous iteration of the thumper was similar to the OG thumper, without the knife pleats. View attachment 961726

JE has never made a type 1 jacket. It’s very rare to see a type 1 jacket made by any brand, I don’t think people really care for the cinched back, they’d rather have waist straps (the flap with the button) to adjust the waist. Levi’s still makes one though.

If you want to learn more about denim jackets, this is a good break down.

I think I have talked about this before, but I think it’s important to have a good understanding of the various Levi’s denim jackets before delving into this. Here’s a good link. https://www.heddels.com/2013/03/levis-denim-trucker-jacket-review-type-i-ii-and-iii/


The first denim jacket I can remember was the mica thumper from the shadow capsule. It had the knife pleats and the one chest pocket of a type 1 but the waist adjusters of a type 2 (so all in all a hybrid type 1/2). Unlike a traditional type 1 or type 2 this jacket had side pockets

In season 7.5 a newer thumper was released in a washed (living?) black color-way. It was similar to the previous iteration but without the knife pleats. There were numerous iterations/fabrications that followed (mr p grey, jacquard, etc etc).

In season 10 (Fw 17) I believe JE put our the first iteration a cropped thumper (now referred to as the type 2 thumper). It was more of a traditional type 2 jacket, some may say a repro (no side pockets, cropped AF). There have been a few fabrications since then.

The “most recent” thumper has been the type 3, which had its first iteration in ss18 as the corduroy type 3 jackets and eventually became denim in FW18. This is pretty close to a traditional or repro type 3 without pockets and without added length.

I think that gets us up to speed. I did this off the top of my head so I may have forgotten somethings.

TL;DR: blah blah blah, denim jackets.
The cinch is a nod to a type 1 jacket. This jacket is really more of a type 1 than a type 2. More on that. anyway, yeah that’s sad if the quality is lacking. It looks to be a spring/summer jacket, so maybe that’s why it’s thin? How does it compare to the other JE denim jackets? If it’s the same, maybe the quality of JE jackets isn’t for you 🤷🏽‍♂️
these are just a few of the posts I’ve (personally) posted about the various differences between the types.

I know people hated it here but got sized up black vintage fleece sweatpants for $82 shipped. Needed relaxed sweats and I can always just wear at home if I don't like it.
