New York designer Todd Snyder collaborated with Legent Bourbon to create a limited-edition denim jacket. Because Legent melds the Kentucky distilling tradition with Japanese blending expertise, Snyder chose to craft the classic jacket in whiskey-colored Japanese denim. The unique fabric is produced on old shuttle looms in Okayama, the famous Japanese denim-making prefecture, and then it is cut and sewn in the U.S.
"I have been traveling back and forth to Japan for decades drawing inspiration from the dynamic people, culture and fashion," Todd Snyder said in a statement. "It’s been so fascinating to see how American trends have been adapted and re-interpreted in Japan, like denim, and vice versa with Japanese trends in the U.S. I am honored to work alongside Legent to bring to life two cultures through quality craftsmanship."
The TS x Legent Bourbon Selvedge Jacket is available in sizes XS to XXL, costs $248 and is hand-numbered. If you’re looking for a special take on an American wardrobe classic, check this out. But don’t wait — only 100 jackets are available.
Made from whiskey-colored Japanese denim, this jacket features two chest flap pockets and a tailored silhouette. Only 100 are available and each jacket is hand-numbered.
