Momotaro x Sunsetstar "All Black" Anniversary Type II Denim Jacket
This variant is sold out
We proudly introduce the third collaboration celebrating our 20th anniversary:
the „All Black“ Type II denim jacket realized by Okayama's Momotaro Jeans!
Lot No. SSSM01 (15.7oz) Vintage Label BLK X BLK
Our anniversary denim jacket is sewn using the brand's original 15.7oz Vintage Label fabric - rinsed for immediate wear. Made entirely from Zimbabwe cotton, this double black fabric is widely praised for its fading color and character, and features a smooth yet hairy surface.
It’s a modern interpretation of the iconic Type II style: longer and slimmer in the body with two additional slanted front welted pockets.
The 507XX, otherwise known as the Type II, was released by Levi’s in 1953. A whole new generation of young people were embracing denim, transforming it from exclusive labourer attire into the quintessential uniform for rebellious teenagers coast to coast.
The look and attitude of the time was epitomised by Martin Sheen’s character in 1973’s cult rebel movie Badlands, who spends the duration of the film dressed in a beaten up 507xx with matching 501s.
Though the Type II was a favourite for rebels and workers alike, it’s also notorious for its relatively short production run; Levi’s ceased production in 1962 after just nine years, which only further bolstered it’s cult status. Originals can fetch several thousand dollars on auction sites.
