Rare Original Levi’s 1953 Type II Jean Jacket
Original ultra rare 1953 Levis type II 507xx jacket in a perfect dark wash denim. The indigo is untouched by sun-fading. Not a reproduction! It was considered the unofficial uniform of the American working man and became the ultimate jacket for cowboys.
Produced with Cone Mill selvedge denim, it features the “Two Horse” lot 507 leather patch, a double pleated front, waist adjusters, and a big “E” red tab. A truly special piece for collectors of Levi’s history.
