On October the 4th in 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite. The world watched the sky with shock and intrigue. The Space Race had officially begun! For this season Levis Vintage Clothing payed tribute to the thrill seekers and space explorers who made their dreams a reality in Rocket City.
This is a Levis Vintage Clothing reproduction of a 50's half zip sweatshirt, made in a knitted cotton fabric that feels nice and soft against the skin. The fit is reproduced to be as close to the original vintage ones as possible with a short length, wide fit and slightly slanted shoulders. On the chest there is a red rocket with the text ARC in it made of felt that has been stitched on to the shirt
What better way to start celebrating what might be known as the new space age than to wear a reproduction from the first space age!
