LVC - 1936 Type I Jacket

The jacket first appeared around 1905, and it was meant as a protective piece to accompany rugged denim pantaloons. The original Levi's 506XX jacket was made from 9 oz. denim and referred to as a "blouse" until the late 1930s, when it officially debuted as a jacket in the company's catalog.

Bure is finding some new denim for a customer from the jeans box at HepCat Store. 
Lots of gold at one of south Swedens sharpest denim store. As we also got a great record section for vinyl and CDs it gets more interesting that Bure is on his free time drummer of the famous instrumental surfband Langhorns and in his younger days he was drumming in The Sinners... another famous band. Denim & Rock'n'Roll comes good together.

Pike Brothers, Lee 101, Levis Vintage, Eat Dust, Big John, Nezumi, 3sixteen, Wrangler

Levi's Vintage Clothing - BING CROSBY TUXEDO

In 1951, the world famous American crooner Bing Crosby was denied entrance into a Canadian hotel because he and his friend were dressed completely in denim. Although the Hotel management eventually recognized Bing and made an exception because of who he was, the story of the incident traveled fast. Friends of his back home contacted Levi Strauss and Co. and the designers immediately developed a custom denim tuxedo jacket for Bing so that he would never have problems wearing Levi’s® Jeans, even in fancy establishments.




For Spring Summer 2014, Levi’s® Vintage Clothing is reproducing this famous piece of Levi’s® history and making a limited run of 200 jackets. All of the details are true to the original.
