Big John KURO2 Type 3 Denim Jacket


Big John's Spring/Summer season has arrived here at Blue Owl! First up is their incredible KURO2 Type 3 Denim Jacket. KURO2 (61B) is Big John's original 12oz sanforized selvedge black indigo overdyed denim. Unlike regular black denim, the warp yarn in this fabric is dyed in indigo before it is dyed in black Sulphur dye. In addition, a special dye was used on the weft yarns allowing it to fade at the same rate as the warp yard. The jacket is a throwback to Levi's vintage type 3 design, with some choice details that make this a really exceptional piece.

Big John KURO2 Type 3 Denim Jacket. 100% cotton. Made in Japan. Sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large. $295. For more info on the KURO2 Jacket, click here.

Custom branded full metal buttons, with a selvedge detail on the inside of the cuff.

Selvedge runs down the inside of the jacket on both sides.

The vintage style back cinch makes slimming the jacket simple.
