- Owner: Chris Beale.
- Brand: Levi’s Jeans.
- Style: 506XX, also known as Type 1 jacket.
- Fit: Boxy and short.
- Worn: The jacket is made in the ’30’s. It has a silver buckle back which refers for Type 1 jackets produced before the ’40’s. From the ’40’s the buckle backs switched to bronze buckle backs. The silver editions are more valuable than the bronze ones.
