Slim fit denim jacket with the signature asymmetrical chest pocket and slanted front yoke design made from denim that consist of 50% pre-consumer recycled cotton and 50% organic cotton. Bobby also features two front welt pockets as well as some added room for movement which differentiate it from Billy.
This denim jacket has been treated a bit differently compared to the other jackets Nudie Jeans do – it is not dry nor rinsed. What they have done is soaked it in water and left it to hang dry. This results in crinkled, slightly hairy denim with a dry hand, duller and bluer hue.
The benefit of a soak is that it generates denim with a near-dry break-in potential. While the indigo dye slightly bleeds onto the white weft yarns the majority of the surface-bound indigo remains on the warp yarns. This generates the hairier, duller, and slightly bluer hue. During the soak the cotton absorbs water, making the yarns swell and skew – increasing the irregularity of the surface structure. This gives the soaked denim a slightly different aging property compared to dry denim. Wear will pronounce the irregularities giving the denim jacket a more textural aging property. Since it is not rinsed and only allowed to absorb water, the starch remains on the denim. Starch is what makes denim generate sharp creases, it is at these creases that the most pronounced wear shows. The preservation of the starch is the main reason for soaked denim’s near-dry break-in potential.
