eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons x Dickies Blazer
Re-constructed Overdyed eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Man x Dickies Tailored Blazer
This tailored jacket / blazer by eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Man is an elaborate re-construction of an existing Dickies boilersuit / coverall. It is a piece from Junya Watanabe’s Autumn — Winter 2009 — 2010 season menswear collection.
Dickies is the brand name, under which Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company markets many kinds of work clothes it manufactures. The company was started in Bryan, Texas in 1922 and has since become the world’s largest workwear manufacturer and an iconic American workwear brand.
Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Man, and especially its casualwear sub-line eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Man, have been experimenting with re-constructing apparel bearing historic Western clothing trademarks. They transform work and sports clothes made by such historic (mostly American) brands as Nike, The North Face, Pendleton, New Balance and even Hanes into tailored pieces and formal attire manufactured by such traditional tailoring companies as Brooks Brothers into casual clothing, thus boldly crossing fashion style boundaries.
This unique jacket is a fine example of such groundbreaking transformation — a Dickies Deluxe Coverall made of heavyweight cotton drill fabric was taken apart, re-cut and re-assembled into this classic 3-button blazer, which was then over-dyed in deep black.
While having been completely re-worked into a formal blazer, the jacket retains such original features of a Dickies boilersuit / coverall as bi-swing back, zippered chest pockets and left back pocket, side tools pockets and original Dickies branding on the left chest pocket and inside the jacket. Original brass zippers with Dickies-branded pullers remain on the chest pockets and matching vintage-treated and overdyed brass buttons stamped JWCDG MAN were added by Junya Watanabe.
Condition: Excellent pre-owned. No imperfections.
Fabric: 100% cotton.
Size: SS. The blazer fits as a regular size S, please check the actual measurements taken with the blazer laid flat: armpit to armpit (chest) 19 inches/49 cm, base of collar to bottom (length) 27 inches/69 cm, shoulder seam to shoulder seam (shoulder) 16 1/2 inches/42 cm, armpit to cuff (inner sleeve) 16 1/2 inches/42 cm, shoulder seam to cuff (outer sleeve) 24 1/2 inches/62 cm.
