One of my original vintage Levi’s ‘Big E’ Jeans Type 3 jackets from the ’60’s. The back of the buttons are stamped with the digit #526. The jacket is single stitched. Both details from the ’60’s. The jacket is customized by myself with the authentic Sashiko stitching technique from Japan. This jacket is a kind of a homage to the Japan. The ‘canvas’ of the homage is the authentic U.S.A. made jacket. The Sashiko stitching is done entirely by hand, even the red Japan flag on the back is painted by hand. In total I spend 40 hours to make this homage jacket. This special Levi’s Jeans jacket connects America and Japan.
