Sugar Cane type II alive and kicking
It’s been a while since I checked in with my denim jacket. I feel like it’s coming along pretty nicely, the honeycombs are starting to set in and I will probably try to wash it pretty often so I don’t get to much contrast. Almost time for the third wash now so this is just a teaser. I’ll check in soon again with a proper post wash update!
By the way, not too long ago I learned about what denim Sugar Cane uses for the jacket: it’s the same 14 oz denim as in their 1947 jeans. Just like the with the jacket it is a steal and some people say the best 1947 cut on the market. Naoki-san over at Pants shop avenue is great doing business with if you happen to lust for a pair.

Lookin’ great! How often would you say you wear it (also, how long by now)? I try to wear my SC11953 as much as possible, but there’s only so many texas tuxedo days I can put up with before I get bored, hah.
Thanks Kyle! I suppose I wear it like 4 days a week or so. Just like you say it gets a little bit tiring always kicking the tux so I take a break a few days a week. ;) Hm, I think I got it in march or april last year. So around 8-9 months then with on and off wear to it. How’s your jacket coming along?
Yeah, I bought mine back in late fall, so I have a ways to go. I usually wear it two full days a week, sometimes in the house like a pajama top. I really want it to fade though. I was nearly devastated when somebody commented that I looked like a GAP commercial when I dared to wear it one day to work over chinos :-O lol.
Here’s a snap:
You wouldn’t know where to get inspiration ideas on wearing 50’s style denim jackets (like various inner combinations, etc.)?
Hehe, I also wear it indoors these days. Man it must have hurt to hear that, lol. Even more so when you’re wearing high end denim.
I suppose you might find some inspiration in this thread over at Superfuture: http://supertalk.superfuture.com/index.php/topic/15038-what-about-jeans-jackets/. But my best bet would probably Instagram. Browse hashtags for the Osaka5 brands like Warehouse, Fullcount and Denime and you’ll definitely find a lot of people into 50’s style. I’ll compose a list of denim blogs and mail to you this week too.
