Tribute To The End Of The 19th Century
A new family member is added to the JWJ brand, the Wabash Triple Pleated Jacket. This jacket blouse style is their tribute to the end of the 19th century. Inspired by the original 1880’s design, including a slightly cropped torso and a cinch back.
The Wabash Jacket
The JWJ jacket is a follow-up on the two classic El Patron jackets of the brand. While the first El Patron jacket was made of selvedge fabric (actually, two versions are available, loom state and iron overdyed), the second was made of heavy brown duck canvas. Now, the jacket collection is expanded with the Wabash version.
The Details Of The Jacket
The jacket is made with a Japanese selvedge fabric, a blue indigo fabric with striped discharged Wabash print. It’s a 9,2-ounce fabric, 100% cotton. The fabric isn’t washed, so raw (rigid), which means you have to break it in yourself.
As it has an authentic fit, it’s shortcutted with double pleats on the front. There’re two round-shaped pockets on the front as well, strength at the corners with rivets. The closure copper buttons are laurel leaves from the YKK brand. On the back of the jacket is a cinch back, so you can easily adjust it.
The JWJ Brand
JWJ is a small denim brand based on the sunny island of Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Spain). The brand is founded by José Luis Vives (Palma, 1978) and his uncle José (“Pepin”) Vives (Palma, 1948). By blending both sets of initials of the founders, JV VJ, the JWJ brand was born.
With their brand, they turned their passion into a successful profession. Their design are always inspired by originals, workwear-related, but twisted with a modern approach. To get see more of the JWJ brand, watch their video here;
