Stretch Denim Zip Front Jacket: A few years ago, I made a jacket that I called "Little Blue" because it was the perfect go-to little blue jacket.
This jacket is kind of his big brother.. the perfect go-to little denim jacket.
Recently I was looking to buy a new denim jacket but couldn't find anything that worked. I kept seeing the same-old, same-old: that classic denim jacket body that is too causal for what I need. Also, I can't stand the way those look with jeans = I can't explain it, but it makes me cringe.....
So, I thought of my favorite little blue jacket and started to make a new jacket based on that style.
The inspiration for the original pattern came from a pretty unlikley source:
While organizing the basement, I found some of my husband's old police uniforms.
The shapes were strong & sharp and I thought there could be something here worth exploring. I started to wonder what a Blade+Blue version of these jackets could look like.
I wanted to retain the structure of the police jackets but with a clean finish and sleek attitude. Almost like 'Superhero meets Supermodel' ... after all, my husband takes his work very seriously and he is kind of like a superhero to me.
This style is cut with a mid-weight denim that has 2% elastane built in. The weight and stretch in the fabric allowed us to take a more 'industrial' shape and tailor it in a sharp, modern way.
For example, we kept trimming away some of the excess fabric, shortening the garment's body length to hit right at the hip. A very flattering update.
The front chest patch pocket & hidden zipper front pockets also play off this idea of mixing utility with modernity. Plus they keep everything secure!
Speaking of pockets - I can never get enough, so 2 more deep pockets are built right into the interior.. Mine are stuffed with dog treats, making me a popular daddy at the dog park.
Made of 98% cotton with 2% lycra.

Jacket is lovely and true to size. Was a huge hit for a christmas gift for my brother. I preordered in December and the communication regarding the shipment timing was excellent. I knew exactly what was happening and when to expect it - WELL in time for christmas. Thanks so much!
