This season Levis Vintage Clothing pays tribute to the folk music revival that began in the 1940s, when Americans found a renewed interest in traditional music and square dancing. A decade later, the music was all but silenced as folk artists who were seen as rebellious bohemians were driven into hiding during the Red Scare. Despite the censorship, the folk movement continued and solicited it's appeal to a new generation of beatniks and free thinkers. By the 1960s New York City's Greenwich Village had become the epicenter of American folk music, where musicians revolutionized the genre and placed it at the center of popular culture.
This is a Levis Vintage Clothing reproduction of a 1960s short horn suede sherpa jacket. The bright colored suede is a pleasure to look at and when worn over time it will age and darken to perfection, showing traces of the years that have passed. The outer layer is made of Bovine suede and it's lined with a short trimmed sheepskin. The sleeves are lined with a quilted viscose/acetate fabric. Further more the jacket has two chest pockets, the signature Big E red tab, a short horn Levi's label on the inside and Levi's branded snap buttons.
One could really imagine Bob Dylan wearing this kind of suede jacket during the cold autumns walking down Jones Street back in 1963.
