News From Levi's Vintage Clothing


 
One of the "news" is the 1874 - Triple Pleat Blouse.
The first ever denim jacket, dating back to 1874 was found by Mike Harris in Nevada and acquired by the Levis Archive in 2008. Triple pleated at the front, with a titled waistband (shorter in the back), this jacket was made to fit like a shirt hence the name “blouse”, but still made in a jacket weight fabric.
