Levi’s Type 1 jacket reproduction

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271202863443

This jacket was made by Levi Strauss and Co.. It is a reproduction of their Type 1 denim jacket, produced from the turn of the century until it was supplanted by the Type II in 1956. It has a pleated front, single breast pocket, and buckle back. This one has a slider buckle instead of the pronged type like the original would have had. The denim is factory distressed, as are the buttons. The styling makes me think LVC repro, but the combination of the small “E” on the red tab, non selvedge denim, and the 70535-9954 model no. on the tag make me wonder if it might just be a short-lived reissue by the main branch of the company.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
