JACK/KNIFE | REVERSIBLE JACKETS PART II: MELTON WOOL & DEADSTOCK JAPANESE SELVEDGE DENIM

sorry for delay! it doesn’t took one day to show the other great reversible JACK/KNIFE jacket but a week. too much work, a f***ing cold … but here it is: the second J/K jacket made of 12oz. linen japanese selvedge denim and 13oz melton navy wool. i loved the touch of this piece when i had it at my office for taking the photos – just great. the buttons are so nice: hand carved and dyed for 3 times in indigo for a rich deep blue that will patina over time to reveal the natural ash wood look. the construction is 100 % the same as the J/K tweed jacket: a real reversible jacket that features vereything for both ways of carrying. no more words about the strictly limitation – you know this …
but again the shops you maybe can get this wonderful jacket:

TELLASON & JACK/KNIFE VEST | BURG & SCHILD BERLIN

16 pieces were produced and me, i got one – just exclusively available at berlin located BURG & SCHILD! thx TIM for fast shipment, thx KAY and SHANE for reserving this great piece during my holidays. the vest is the result of a collaboration between san francisco located JACK/KNIFE and TELLASON. i saw the vest first time @ BREAD & BUTTER at the TELLASON stall and i knew: a-must-have-piece. TONY told me a lot about how the vest was made: all by hand – cut and sewn and waxed. made of deadstock duck canvas from a mill in south carolina – only one roll of this fabric was left! for more details please check the handwritten tags on the photos below. for some photos of the manufacturing process please check the AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION site. pics | LTG
