Levi Strauss & Co. was founded in 1853 in San Francisco, California, by a German immigrant. The brand’s famously riveted apparel has since made it a global name. Levi’s denim jackets have been manufactured for over 140 years with little alteration. In contrast to worker’s clothing such as coveralls, jackets are cut shorter and grouped into three types based on design, specs, and the period of manufacture. These vintage designs, highly coveted by collectors today, greatly influenced the enduring appeal of denim jackets. Besides presenting a fascinating history of this iconic garment, this publication gathers over 70 rare pieces preserved by dedicated Japanese collectors.
