The “3rd/4th type” is the most popular type of denim jacket among the many types of denim jackets. Although this model follows in the footsteps of the 1st and 2nd denim jackets, which emphasized practicality, it is an item designed with fashion as its top priority. In this issue, we focus on the “3rd/4th type denim jackets” and introduce their features and notable items!

Fashionable people are crazy about the “3rd/4th type” denim jackets, which are also called the perfection of denim jackets!

The 3rd type denim jacket first appeared in 1961. Until then, denim jackets were recognized as “workwear,” but Levi’s sensed the gradual spread of the trend among young people to enjoy denim jackets as a fashion item, and launched a major model change from the 2nd type. Unlike the 1st and 2nd models, which were developed as workwear, the 2nd model was born as a fashion item and is still loved by a wide range of people as the most popular model. The popularity of the brand can be seen from the fact that many participants in the Pitti Uomo, a gathering of fashion professionals and fashionable people, wear the brand.

On the other hand, the 4th type was created in 1967. At a quick glance, it looks almost the same as the 3rd type, but in fact, the silhouette has changed drastically: the 1st to 3rd types were short and wide, but the 4th type has a slimmer silhouette and a longer length. The 4th type is also gaining strong popularity as a more fashionable model.
