This vintage Levi’s Jeans kids jacket is another treasure from my personal denim archive. It’s a 70805 jacket, also known as the Type 3 jacket. The jacket is made in the ’60’s and is a so called Big E jacket. The Red Tab is cut-off but the back of the number is stamped with digit #527 (look closely to see the whole number) which refers to the Big E period. Red Tab Big E items were produced until 1971. The jacket is single stitched what you can see on the bottom at the closure. All indicators that this is a true original vintage piece. The size of this Levi’s Jeans jacket is Size 8, a small kids jacket. The jacket is made in the U.S.A.
This Levi’s Jeans jacket belonged probably to a kid with the name Chris as you can see on the chest patch. The patches of the jacket shows that his parents were really into bikes. The whole jacket is patched with original patches from the ’60’s and ’70’s. This was the period people would love to patch their denim jackets to express themselves. This Chris kid was definitely one of the coolest kids on school with this jacket. No doubt about that! Check below this cool Levi’s ‘Wild Thing’ Jeans jacket.
