Vintage Levi’s ‘Big E’ 559XX Denim Jacket
This original vintage Levi’s denim jacket is another treasure from my private denim archive. It’s the famous Levi’s 559XX jacket from the late 1960’s. The jacket is also known as the ‘Type 3‘ and feature the legendary ‘Big E’ Red Tab as it’s produced before 1971. This jacket is the Winter version of the 557XX style and has a blanket lining to keep yourself warm during colder days.
Produced In The U.S.A.
The back of the buttons are stamped with digit #525, so it’s produced in the U.S.A. The jacket has heavy worn fades, whiskers at the sleeves and some denim repairs. Also, the lining is destroyed by wear. This Levi’s denim jacket is a heavy worn example with true American roots.
