Vintage Levi’s ‘Big E’ 559XX Blanket Lining Jeans Jacket From 1960’s
This original vintage Levi’s Jeans jacket is another treasure from my private denim archive. It’s the famous Levi’s 559XX – Type 3 – jacket from the late ’60’s. The jacket is also known as a Big E (produced before 1971). This Levi’s Jeans 559XX jacket is the Winter version of the 557XX style and has a blanket lining.
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 Jeans jacket is a heavy worn example with true American roots.
