The latest CD-1 in 16 oz Japanese selvedge denim is in the house. Freenote have been testing the denim for the past 12 months and are finally ready to share with you. The denim is a heavy slub indigo 6x6 construction from Yoshiwa Mills, Japan. The texture also highlights some slight nepping in the yarns and is a great balance of texture and color. The ticking is red selvedge ID. This jacket has gone through a single rinse which brightens up the color of the fabric and also relaxes the fit and takes out the rigidness of a raw denim jacket. The rinse makes the 16 oz denim feel a bit lighter and much more comfortable.
This jacket was one of the first pieces Freenote designed. It quickly became a staple and they consider it their version of the classic trucker style jacket. Freenote modified the design of the front chest patch pockets by adding a curved shape to the flap and pocket. Switched the typical welt pockets with a pocket built into the front panels of the jacket. Like their original model we brought back the interior pockets that are perfect for your wallet.
