In the previous Denim Talk (No. 22) Lennaert went through all the details of the duck brown variant of our new lined rider jacket. At the end of that video, a quick sneak peek of another, soon-to-be-available fabric in the same jacket was shown. In this Denim Talk Lennaert will review this other BDJ-06 LINED RIDER JACKET, in the special #2 15 oz. vintage indigo selvedge.

The BDJ-06 LINED RIDER JACKET is our interpretation of the classic denim rider jacket design with a handful of signature-BENZAK detailing. We've reimagined a classic silhouette with the aim of developing a contemporary cut with a longer body for a modernised regular fit. The jacket is very similar to our BDJ-02 style, yet there are some notable differences. The BDJ-06 is fully lined, including the arms. The jacket features two hand warmer pockets and two button-down chest pockets, all large enough to carry your everyday necessities.
15 oz. VINTAGE INDIGO SELVEDGE has been exclusively woven by Candiani Denim for BENZAK. We’ve dubbed this fabric the SPECIAL #2 as it’s the second proprietary BENZAK fabric to enter our main collection. The fabric is a 3x1 right hand twill construction and the raw vintage indigo colour represents a shade of indigo used for denim during the fifties and sixties. We've developed the special #2 fabric with thicker weft yarns than the warp yarns. This gives the fabric an extra soft interior resulting in additional comfort from the get-go. The selvedge colours are ‘Azurri’ (blue) and ‘Oranje’ (orange). As well as being an aesthetic feature the custom selvedge pays homage to both collaborating companies’ national sports colours, Italy & The Netherlands. It's also a nod towards the long-standing friendship between BENZAK and Candiani.
