Not vintage but I’ve been enjoying this RGT jacket. “River wash” aka stone wash isn’t for everyone but 1) I like it, and it retains a fair bit of that crisp hand feel 2) not every item of clothing needs to be a project from blank slate to mega fades (in my opinion)

Baltimore. Actually, I love it.

Now, that's a real nice break from the endless parade of Type IIIs. Very nice!

Thanks man I stayed away from these for a long time due to all the hype.

I suppose that’s why I decided against going for the tan waxed canvas one.

That being said it’s a well made jacket with nice materials in a flattering pattern, and I really like pocket set up

Here’s a direct comparison between something new and the vintage piece that inspired it. Both super nice. These 80’s era Levi’s are just great and all over eBay for peanuts. The Sherpa is twice as thick as what the modern Levi’s product uses. The denim is Levi’s unmistakable 70’s, 80’s, 90’s stone washed 12-15oz stuff. Feels like a jacket made to shovel shit out of a barn in. Made in the USA.

Tagged a 42” Long, it’s anything but. 25” sleeve and 24” back. Important to get measurements as these can and obviously have been washed, so look out for shrinkage!

Hecho in Mexico Polo. Super plush, I dare say luxurious, tan Sherpa. A hair thicker and softer than the Levi’s OG. Sleeves cut more modern and trim. Denim is flimsy as is the quilted sleeve liner. Looks great though and plenty warm for winter.

I really like them both. I have to pull back the reigns as these jackets tend to get me carried away. I do still need one in black, preferably an older Levi’s.
