Just like jeans, the denim jacket was developed as a sturdy garment for hard working men and women, cowboys and the fortune seekers of the gold rush. Just like the jeans, it was later adopted by teenagers who made it dangerously stylish. The first denim jacket that we know of came about in 1905. In the beginning it was called a blouse, and didn’t become a “jacket” until the 1930’s. We try to stay true to our roots and carry three different fits, and these three styles are still what we’re looking for when we go shopping for a new denim jacket.
Conny is a boxy and stripped version of the classic. Only the bare essentials, no unnecessary seams, just a really clean jacket with the Nudie Jeans embo on the back yoke.
Perry is the newest to the family of jean jackets, but the cut is the most classic; a short, slim fitting jacket with double flat fell seams under each slanted pocket.
Sonny, a classic, loose-fit, 30’s worker jacket. Its roots can be traced all the way back to 1905. This is the original jean blouse with knife pleats on each side of the front closing.
A dry denim jacket takes a while to break in. Don’t let the time scare you off. You should see a dry denim jacket as an investment for the future; and if you can’t break it in during your lifetime, pass it on to the kids.
