Y'2's "140" 1st Type Jackets are a favorite of ours, with a design based on WWII era Type-I jackets - but stripped of the traditional embellishments like a buckle back or back pleats. This allows the leather to do the talking, showing off the impressive horsehide and Y'2's masterful cutting, and ensures more consistent patina across the entire jacket.

Dying leather with indigo is actually quite a difficult process, it's something that's easy to get not quite right, and even easier to mess up completely. The tannery that have managed to dye the horsehide used on these jackets such a consistent and rich indigo came upon this recipe after years of trial and error. As the process to dye horsehide is very different from the process of dying cotton, you can expect this indigo leather to act a bit differently over time than your favorite pair of jeans.

Over time, the horsehide will lighten up in areas of high wear, fading to a lighter shade of blue. Don't go expecting this thing to ever go hot blue though, the color will remain mostly consistent throughout, as the dye has a much more stable bond with the leather than it ever forms with a cotton thread. You also won't have to worry about accidentally getting indigo all over things, which is a plus for sure.

The whole thing closes up with five brass Wreath & Star donut buttons, same buttons as on the cuffs - these buttons can be a bit tough at first, but break in quickly with use. The body is lined in an olive drab 80% cotton / 20% linen canvas, with nylon lined sleeves. Inside, there are two chest pockets that can be used as more secure storage than the single external pocket, a nice touch and a welcome update on the WWII-era style.

Fits true to size. Do not wash, dry or dry clean.
