Raw, untouched textiles, woven as they always were, with a layer of indigo waiting to be chipped away. Motifs of our tiny little snail friend throughout.

This is The Prologue. This is The Tale of the Iron Snail.

The jacket in these photographs is washed. Yours will look completely untouched and have a darker shade of indigo until it undergoes it's first wash.

In these images, the arm patch is sewn on for demonstration purposes – it will not be delivered sewn on. This way, you can customize your jacket.


    • 14.5oz raw/pink selvedge denim
    • Full grain cowhide patch
    • Custom YKK buttons
    • Made in Canada


    • You can expect the jacket to shrink 3 - 5% after washing, the jacket will stretch out after wear.
    • Don't buy a jacket that is too small hoping it will stretch, buy your size!
    • Are you in between sizes? Buy the larger size.
    • Pit to pit is half of your chest size. Aka if the P2P is a 19" that's a 38" chest.
    • Sleeve measurement here is from center back to end of cuff. NOT shoulder seam to cuff. That's why it may seem quite long.

    The Tale of The Iron Snail

    Why is this jacket called the Prologue? Well, simply put, it's the prologue to "The Tale of The Iron Snail".

    The Iron Snail is a clothing brand, of course. However, running throughout the brand is a tale, the story of The Iron Snail. A snail no larger than the size of a quarter, with a glowing blue shell.

    Each garment we make tells a piece of "The Tale of The Iron Snail". This garment, just so happens to be the start, the prologue.

    Along with the jacket you'll receive a care guide, and the story.


    Ah, denim—a fabric so ubiquitous that upon mention of the name, we all tend to think of ourselves as some form of experts. In reality, it's a fabric that hasn't ceased its innovation since its creation. Here, we have a charming raw denim that is anything but predictable. With just the right amount of slub and nep, a pastel pink thread running through the selvedge line, and a rich shade of indigo atop the warp threads, this is a denim sure to excite.

    It's the small things.

    We have a strong appreciation for small details here at The Iron Snail. From the selvedge collar to the hidden note on the care tags, we've taken care to include numerous subtle features that will provide ample conversation fodder. This makes it ideal for those awkward small talk moments and really, really bad dates.

    Its perfect, really nothing less.

    Ive got about 4 different denium jackets, this one is by far the nicest. It takes a little bit to losen after the first ware, as all selvage heavyweight items do. Its a good weight, and will be an easy choice for the colder weather. The number of pokets fits my daily use quite well. I shoved a pocketnotes journal into the inside pocket quite easily on one day.


    Absolutely beautiful jacket, fit perfectly after being washed and feeling it soften over time is awesome. I'll be wearing it for a long time.

    Great fit. Well made. Love it.


    I was sad boy when I missed the very first drop of this jacket. I pined and longed for restocks. I think I missed the first restock too. I was quite happy to see it had restocked again and fired away. Couldn’t wait to receive it and boy howdy did it get here fast.

    Lemme tell ya about this thing. The jacket is just B-E-A-Utiful. Love the little details. The buttons with the Iron Snail logo is a lovely touch. I even love the pocket flasher that comes on the jacket with the tail of the iron snail. Lastly the patch is very fetching and matches the colors of the jacket incredibly well. I’m still deciding if I’ll sew it on or use elsewhere. All in all it’s instantly become one of my new favorite jackets.

    Very much look forward to seeing this one age and fade and conform to me wearing it over time.

    That said lemme get out of here and go for a walk…I need to be seen wearing this thing. Smell ya later, snaliens.

    Great jacket

    Was very happy Michael was able exchange the small I had originally ordered with a medium, which fits perfect. Can't wait to see how it breaks in over the coming months and really look forward to future drops from Iron Snail.
