Reversible Souv Bomber Jacket - CU

Here’s a quick history lesson for you: “souvenir jackets” were originally created by American G.I.’s on assignment in Japan. To commemorate their time living abroad, they commissioned local kimono tailors to create American-style baseball jackets. As the tailors  worked with silk fabrics and rich embroidery techniques, they applied these to the American soldiers’ jackets, instantly fusing Eastern and Western fashion traditions.

  • Fully reversible!
  • When reserved to the blue side, the jacket’s back is plain (no embroidery).
  • Crafted from 100% cupro with contrast piping.
  • Our tribute to Japan’s contribution to denim and fashion in general.

About the collection

From Amsterdam to Tokyo

Each season, DENHAM’s design team approaches the brand’s signature aesthetic from new angles and fresh perspectives. This season’s collection inspiration began with a simple walk through the streets of Amsterdam …

The Netherlands’ capital city has long served as a source of inspiration for Jason Denham, founder of DENHAM the Jeanmaker. Some months ago, he was on a stroll through the ‘Nine Streets’ neighbourhood when he walked into a local antiques store, ‘Van Hier tot Tokio’ (From Here to Tokyo), just a few blocks from the DENHAM design studio. The store specialises in Japanese furniture, textiles and art. And since Jason’s had a longstanding obsession for everything Japanese, his creativity immediately began to flow…

Jason uncovered a stack of antique ‘katagami’ stencils, which are used in printing traditional silk kimonos. Each one had been hand-cut and punched with complex motifs, and each showed signs of wear-and-tear from years of use. Jason bought a few examples and brought them to the DENHAM design studio for inspiration.

The team quickly decided to give the designs a second life, reimagining them in a modern way with a fresh new twist. It’s a perfect reflection of DENHAM’s mantra to ‘workship tradition, destroy convention.’

The Logo

The brand’s iconic logo

For Jason Denham, scissors are a symbol of his craft. Throughout his career he’s collected thousands of pairs – each with a unique story and past. But there’s one scissor that’s the most important: his first pair, which inspired the brand’s iconic logo.

The Truth is in the Details

By Jason Denham

I’ve dedicated my life to making the perfect jeans. They’re my passion and my pride. Like a chef, I hand pick all my ingredients: I study tradition and technique, and obsess over every detail. I honour heritage and authenticity, while bringing a modern twist to my craft. I believe ‘The Truth is in the Details’ and every pair of DENHAM jeans tells a story – one that evolves every time they’re worn. I’m excited to share in this journey and story with you.
