The TB-142 coverall jacket from Y’2 Leather is quite simply a great jacket. From our point of view it is the epitome of work wear style in a great pattern and cut with the perfect material to age and suit the style. Love these!
The Steerhide suede/ rough out (rough side out) leather is 1.3 mm in thickness making this a medium to lighter weight leather that is very pliable, immediately comfortable and not restrictive at all. It feel like a slightly thicker suede shirt but much more robust. It’s a great leather, has a very high end feel, beautiful shade and will look great when aged.
The indigo dyeing/ tanning process is a rare sight in the leather world as it is a difficult process and only mastered here by a couple of specific tanners that Y’2 have worked with for a number of years. The Navy is quite a bright Navy with a slight purple hue that will lighten and darken in area’s of wear over the years to produce a truly unique patina relating to the owners shape.
It’s a great fitting jacket and one that feels and looks great layered up or down. It is well proportioned all over, keeping with the traditional coverall fit it is slightly slimmer in the shoulders, longer sleeved (but they balance each other out, that’s the style) with a straight body that is neither baggy or modernly tailored. For reference Mr model is 5Ft 11″ on a good day, circa 87 KG’s, long in the torso with a fairly wide chest and wears a size 40. He could comfortably have worn a flannel shirt/ thicker layer underneath but for big heavy layering would want a 42 or tough it out until the 40 conforms and stretches a bit.
There are details galore including heavyweight dark orange stitching throughout (denim inspired), 2 internal leather trimmed pockets, Brown cotton drill lined (nylon sleeves) with leather facing trim throughout. It comes supplied with Y’2 branded quality jacket hanger and branded coat bag.
The finish, as is to be expected form a company that specialise in leather jackets from Japan, great. Very neat and all well aligned.
This is a lifetime jacket that will look and feel superb the more you wear it. Enjoy!
