3sixteen Modified Type-3 Denim Jacket

3sixteen's new Modified Type-3 Denim Jacket came into the shop this week and is quickly selling out! There are two versions, one using their indigo/black Shadow Selvedge and one using their Solid Black selvedge fabric. This take on the classic Levi jacket is very slim, and adds hand pockets to the front. We are looking to restock this Jacket sometime in December, so if you are interested and your size is sold out, please send us an email!

3sixteen Modified Type-3 Denim Jacket in Solid Black. 100% cotton, made in USA. Sizes S thru X-Large. $265. For more information, click here.


The tonal stitching on the jackets results in a very sleek look.

All of the buttons on the jacket are 3sixteen's custom branded doughnut buttons that are used on their denim.

The cuffs are very slim, and have a soft corduroy lining.


The recessed hand pockets are also lined with corduroy, and are large enough for big hands or big phones.

The back of the jacket uses 3sixteen's signature cross-pattern yoke.

On the inside we can see the selvedge running up the placket, and 3sixteen's patch sewn to the inside of the jacket.

BOM008-T Second Production Has Arrived!


The BOM008-T second production has arrived in the Seattle! Just in time for the cold weather setting in, this new run of 200 pairs will mean that everyone who wants to wrap their legs in some amazing 18oz denim gets the chance. The denim's measurements have already been updated online, and is available in store now. We will restock the item online on Saturday morning, so check out the measurements now and figure out what size you need!

Momotaro x Blue Owl "Stealth Warrior" Tapered 18oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM008-T. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36, 38. $295. For more information, click here.

The 18oz sanforized denim is smooth to the touch, but small irregularities in the yarn will give it tons of fading character. This year Momotaro has changed things up with the cotton: Because Australia and America had amazing crops, this denim uses a 100% American cotton warp and a 100% Australian cotton weft. The Australian cotton is silky smooth to the touch, making the denim amazingly comfortable despite the heavy weight.

BOM008 brings us a much overdue, brand new patch design! After working with of some of our customers to design something new and exciting we've gone with this variation on the classic Momotaro patch, courtesy of Erik B. As thanks for helping make this collaboration our best yet, Erik will receive a free pair of BOM008!

Of course, with all the astonishing faded stripes we've seen from BOM006, we couldn't resist putting the stealth stripes in. Once again 100% kangaroo leather strips have been sewn into the back pocket. As the denim is worn these stripes will fade into the pocket, creating the classic Momotaro icon through pure raw denim ethos.

This photo displays the inside of the back pocket. You can see where the leather strips are sewn in, and the new pocket bag design. Both back pockets are fully lined.

As always with Momotaro, you can expect all of the top notch details. The coin pocket gives just a peak at the selvedge, and each rivet is custom branded and perfectly placed.

The nickel buttons compliment the dark denim, and like all Momotaro jeans the buttons are custom branded with Momotaro's peach. In this photo you can see the back pocket rivet, a detail that further ensures the durability of the top block.

The back of Momotaro's rivets are also custom made. The new pocket bags add a hint of color hidden inside the denim.

The Australian cotton weft of the denim has a sheen that makes it almost appear a deep grey. Like the warp, despite being smooth, the weft has an interesting visual texture.

Keeping true to Momotaro details, we have white and pink selvedge, and a pink inseam stitch. There are currently 100 pairs of BOM008 in production, in both skinny and tapered fits. We expect the denim to arrive in early August, so keep your eyes peeled!
