My latest vintage catch is this Levi’s Jeans ‘Big E’ type 3 trucker jacket from 1968 – 1969. What I personally like about this jacket is that it has a kind of virgin look, bright and clean! As I have several vintage denim ‘Big E’ jackets this one immediatly catch my eyes with his authentic canvas look. The jacket has the number 524 buttons which correspondence with the year 1968 -1969. The pre-owner told me that he purchased the jacket in The Hague (NL) during his youth. Probably this was his favourite jacket which he had for a very long time. He added his name inside at the back of the famous flap pocket. Now it was time to clean up his closet and wanted to give the jacket a new life by a new owner. Glad that I had the opportunity to add this beauty in my private collection.
