My father received this jacket from his mother when he was 13 or 14 years old (1956 or 1957), likely for his birthday, as he didn't have much. I wore it in the early 1980s, and loaned it to my girlfriend (who was a little too eager to borrow it, and a little too reluctant to return it). Fortunately my dad made me make a special trip to her house across town, and even let me use his car, to get it. Thank god.
Provenance and NOT a reproduction. So this jacket is over 60 years old.
I love this jacket (and vintage clothes in general) and if it still fit me you would have to pry it out of my cold dead hands.
According to experts who know more than me:
Levi’s 507XX “Type II Jacket”
Two patch pockets, bar tacked
What I can tell you:
Big "E" on both front and reverse of red tag
Exposed copper rivets
Reverse of rivets read "17," as pictured
Minimal and age-appropriate fading. The color is medium blue, and not indigo.
Photos presented are not retouched or saturated in any way. I have to say, though, the photos of the jacket lain flat are the closest approximation of the actual color you will see when you open the package because of the lighting in the room.
Very minimal wear to top of collar and ends of sleeves.
No missing rivets or buttons.
No stains on exterior, no rips, no holes, no snags and no fraying or tattering; no mold, fungus or musty smell.
Zoom in for some minor distress to yellow stitching on front, which I have seen on other jackets of this type.
Armpit to armpit: 20.5” (inches)
Top rear of collar to rear bottom waist:...
