Japanamerica Type II Jackets
The Hill-Side Japanamerica Type II Jacket, American Brown Duck
THE ALL-NEW "JAPANAMERICA" TYPE II JACKET

Our new Japanamerica Type II Jacket is designed as a hybrid between the classic Levi's 507XX "Type II" jacket from the 1950s, and a rare Japanese Air Force pilot's "Type 2" jacket from World War II — a unique blend of vintage inspirations that represent The Hill-Side's roots in the US and Japan.

The Japanamerica Type II Jacket is expertly constructed at a boutique factory in Okayama that has a long history of producing some of the best vintage reproduction jeans and denim products in the world. The smallest details on this jacket have been scrutinized and perfected.

This beautiful jacket is available now in three hard-wearing versions: our custom-designed TH-S Mills 14oz Okayama Selvedge Denim in One-Wash and Heavy Stonewash, and US-woven American Brown Duck Canvas.

- Two large chest pockets with hidden zip closure — perfect for a cell phone, keys, or wallet
- Adjustable and removable waist belt
- Single chest pleats
- Placket cut on the selvedge (denim versions only)
- Japan-made Universal brass zippers
- Replica WWII-era laurel-leaf donut shank buttons
- Blank copper rivets
- Produced in extremely limited quantities

Available now for $295-$449 with FREE ground shipping through Christmas
