I want an unwashed, non faded new Levi's Jean jacket.

Everywhere I look, they are stonewashed and lame.

Where can I find one in the Shrink to fit raw denim?

Any help would be awesome...

Check ebay, I saw new one there in the past, but the price was very high.

Do they not make these anymore or something? Seems like a pretty obvious product for them.

Do you have to buy a size up for the shrink to fit?

Here you go. I own this jacket and I can verify that it is made of the same material as standard indigo 501 stfs. I'm very satisfied with it too. It was cheap, very substantial, and it actually fits pretty well. Its not exactly slim fitting, but it has a much more tailored fit than I expected. Hopefully I'll have it for years.

It didn't shrink all that much when I soaked it, which I did twice.

I think you can also buy these from some ebay sellers as well as Sheplers.

You would think they would be easy to find, but, alas, they are not. The Levis store doesn't seem to have them in STF material. I want something I can break in myself.

Thanks for the link.

Check your local Levi's store. I just picked up a raw denim trucker jacket at mine.

Just buy extended size levis, stick your arms down the legs and cut a hole in the crotch for your head. It will grow on you.

Wow - the LVC one is much, much nicer. Too bad only L is left

So go TTS when purchasing one of these STF rigid jackets?

Yeah I would say so. I might even suggest maybe sizing down if you are on the lower edge of a size. I'm usually on the snugger side of small, and while the jacket was kind of snug when I got it, it has stretched a some after about 4 months.

I just recently bought a trucker jacket at macys for a discounted price. Anyone know if there's a way to tell if its a regular or slim fitting one-- is it suppose to be indicated on the tags?
