The Classic late 1950s Jean Jacket, the staple design of several makers at the time but accredited to Levis.
We were immensely proud of the sample jacket pictured and would suggest this is the best combination for this style - Troy Blanket lining and Vegetable tanned Vicenza Horsehide.
There are lots of versions of this style available elsewhere, we are utterly confident that ours is by far the best on the market at any price.
This jacket is a 1950s inspired design and has a fit we would describe as 'standard' (somewhere between relaxed and closer fit). It sits releatively short and tapered at the waist.
We typically recommend either selecting your usual size for this style to achieve the intended fit, although you may choose to size up for a more relaxed fit.
