The 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.
This 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.
