This jacket made by Levi's is a reproduction of the oldest denim jacket made by the brand. For us, this jacket is a living proof of the timeless look that is made up by wearing a pair of blue jeans and a denim jacket. Although this jacket was originally designed to be worn as a workwear garment it looks perfect today as an everyday jacket! Not too much has changed in the way a denim jacket looks since the 1880's after all.
The older style of workwear garments from the late 19th century were often slightly more decorated than we see on the workwear of today. The shape of this jacket cut with a curved and longer front combined with the triple pleating and the pleated back are all examples of this!
The denim fabric used is reproduced to be as close to the original fabric as possible with a brighter blue shade and a thinner weight just as it was back in the days. Woven by Cone mills in North Carolina and stitched in the USA.
