Jeans Jacke



For jeans jackets, authenticity is more important than durability. The classic lumberjack form with buttoned waist, front panel with punched metal buttons and the typical pockets and yokes are emphasised with lockstitch seams. Although these jackets do not have any linings, their production is rather challenging. The collar has a collar band and the breast pockets are placed on flat-fell seams, therefore multilayer sewing positions are the result. AMANN serves the jeans industry by supplying sewing threads that provide the look and meet the requirement of strength.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

Our standard sewing thread recommendation for jeans jackets is sabac 80 for closing seams in combination with sabac 30 for decorative and topstiching seams. The classical thread for serging seams is sabac 120.
Depending on the desired look, the denim fabric and the sewing conditions such as stitch density and stitch type other qualities from the AMANN range may be chosen:

  • sabac 50 for closing seams in coarser fabrics and for finer denim fabrics  sabac 100
  • alternatively, Rasant for closing seams in the corresponding tickets
  • for decorative and topstitch seams sabac, Rasant or Serafil in a broad range of tickets
