Wovenfree Custom Shop. The Irwin Eagle! We’re super grateful to team up again w/ Doug Irwin for this limited batch Jacquard jacket.
We start with a brand new premium Levi’s trucker. We carefully sew strips of Deadstock vintage native jacquard into the front yokes. These jacquards were woven over 50 years ago on the original perforated card looms & remain in mint condition. We cut these pieces from the original rolls. Then we embroider nearly 125,000 multilayered stitches directly into the back panel.
Pictured in raw indigo denim. 100% cotton. Standard fit.
*This is also a fully Custom listing…you can pick from a variety of jacket fabrics & also choose your favorite Artwork for the embroidery on back. Then choose from a treasure chest of Deadstock vintage jacquards we’ve collected. Check out the photo gallery the jacquards we have available.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org & he’ll walk you through designing your own personalized custom Jacquard Grateful Dead jacket.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. Each jacket custom made to order.
Dry Clean Only.
…Doug originally drew the ‘Earth Eagle’ art in the early 70’s and then inlayed it by hand into Jerry’s guitar pegheads, notably Tiger and Rosebud. Check out the photo gallery for a shot of him holding the vintage jewelers saw that he’s done all his inlay work with. Doug always invests a deep sense of creativity and complex expression in his guitar design/building process. Irwin Guitars feature a highly ornate craftsmanship. He always aims to inspire the artist forward. The Earth Eagle inlay would become known as the de facto Irwin Guitars logo. To this day. And forever. Grab a piece of Grateful Dead history.
