Tailored workwear that allows remarkable movement crafted with soft Japanese denim.
Traditional jean jackets are armor. Inflexible outer shells. Lift up an arm, the jacket pulls up, and your soft underbelly is exposed. We wanted to make a jacket with beautiful Japan-made denim. But one that feels good to move in. To allow maximum free movement we created a new kind of jacket. After making prototypes and working with an expert patternmaker we arrived at this simple looking but unique shape to allow your arms the most flexible motion we’ve ever felt in a jean jacket.
Side seam pockets. Large inside pockets about 20cm (7.8”) wide. Straight cut. Polished metal zipper. Handmade in Japan.

Fit of Postalco Clothing

If all rocks and trees were the same shape, the world would be disturbingly boring.

Our bodies vary

A person’s body changes over time, and even within a single day. If we want our clothes to last longer they should fit a larger range of bodies. Features like sleeves that roll up easily, offset shoulder seams, and shapes that drape allow our clothing to fit more people, more comfortably.

Movement

Our functional garments are designed for exceptional freedom of movement in daily living. Mobility is a basic human need. The engineering of the clothing is complicated, but it’s designed to be used naturally.

Why do we make so few sizes?

We pattern our clothing to fit as many bodies as we can. Less size variation also means less wasted fabric and less overproduction.

Clothing for men? Or women?

Postalco items have always been non gendered. Beginning with the very first Legal Envelopes we made back in 2000.

Material

Our Denim

We use no stretchy synthetics in our denim so it won't lose its shape after one season. Unfortunately elastane, the rubbery fibers added to jeans to make them stretch, often breaks down before the rest of the fabric, leaving you with a floppy shapeless garment. How do we make clothing without stretch denim that still feels good? The remarkable flexibility felt wearing this is entirely due to the fine-tuned twill weave and unique patternmaking. 100% cotton.

Light Denim

This medium weight denim has a natural irregularity in the yarn with a streaky texture that becomes more apparent with use. Like the grain on a piece of driftwood. This fabric is black on black: Most jeans have the threads visible in front dyed dark while in the back the threads are white. These threads are all dyed black for a mellow aging that stays darker than usual. 11oz.

Care

・Delicate machine wash 30℃ with like colors.
・Warm iron as needed, or dry clean.
・Do not bleach.
・Shade dry only, no tumble dry.
・100% cotton
・There is a small chance the color may crock or bleed, especially when wet.

Clothing for Movement
Exceptional freedom of movement in daily living. Mobility is a basic human need. The engineering of the clothing is complicated, but it’s designed to be used naturally.

Long cut
When you lift your arms the jacket doesn't pull up awkwardly, allowing you to easily reach or stretch anytime.

Prewashed and garment shrunk to shape for exceptional softness.
This item will not significantly shrink. Prewashed garments show the texture of denim and have natural variations in color.

Our Japanese Denim
Woven in the Fukuyama area by a traditional weaver of denim with over 60 years of experience. We love this denim because it is not too heavy or stiff but still ages in the way that makes good denim famous. Fukuyama has a rich history of textiles, dating back to kimonos as well as contemporary workwear.

Sleeves
Clean cuffs without rivets to make it easy to roll up the sleeves.

Layers
Wear over a sweater in cold weather or over a t-shirt in warmer weather.
