As Railcar Fine Goods continues to explore territory beyond jeans, we see the unveiling of the Arcadia, California brand’s latest creation – the Type 3 Classic Apron. Though it’s certainly not a staple of every denim head’s wardrobe, it’s nice to see Railcar transfer their knack for diligent denim construction to another form, yet still maintain a great deal of their vintage detailing.
The Type 3 Classic Apron is composed of a 12 Oz. blue line selvedge raw denim from Cone Mills and built in the same fashion as any of their denim jeans. The outer edges are reinforced with a single chain stitch hemming, each section is bound by a triple stitch, and one can’t help but notice the Railcar emblazoned hardware and 6 Oz. raw leather straps and patch.
Implied within the name as well, the design behind the Apron is inspired by (and pays tribute to) the famous Levi’s Type 3 Jean Jacket. A classic piece in its own right, the Type 3 Jacket is of a slim fitting cut and, more importantly, well known as being the first Levi’s jacket to utilize pointed chest pocket flaps.
