Fabric Type : Made of a 100% cotton unlined, single-ply, lightweight one-washed high-density woven hickory stripe denim fabric. This fabric has a drier, stiffer feel and crisp texture reminiscent of vintage workwear. This jacket is washed once for a fashionable vintage feel and look. Pre washed, minimal shrinkage. The fabric will also develop a comfortable feeling and continue to get softer and cozier through repeated wear. And the more you wear, the more denim will fade beautifully.
