Pherrow’s Type ll Denim Jacket
Similar to Buzz Rickson’s, Pherrow’s is another Japanese vintage reproduction brand. They specialise in, you guessed it, the vintage workwear aesthetics. And boy do they do it well. I’ve seen many a type II in my quest for the ideal one, and this Pherrow’s offering does not disappoint with it’s meticulous attention to details.
They make a mean Type I jacket too, but I’ve always favoured the Type II for its symmetry (two pockets). I also happen to like my pockets with flaps. Although I think the cinch-back on the Type I is a nice touch, I reckon that it’s going to be a hindrance when I carry a backpack. Type II all the way!
