This vintage denim jacket was made by Levi Strauss in the 1930s. Based on the one sided big E red tab, the silver prong type buckle on the buckle back, and the other details, this is the 1936 revision of the design.
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by Key Imperial. It is made from denim with a half-belt back and bi-swing shoulders. It would have originally had a zipper front, but at some point the zipper was replaced with buttons with hand stitched buttonholes. The jacket has a blanket lining and has had the cuffs patched with a lighter denim.
This jacket was made in Japan by WareHouse. The design is inspired by 1920s chore jackets, with an indigo discharge pattern twill fabric, ring-back buttons reading “Union Made”, and a four button front with a pencil pocket in one of the breast pockets.
This jacket was a sample made in Japan by John Lofgren & Co., one of two made for a jacket which never went into production. Based on chore jackets from the 1920s, it is made from 11 oz indigo selvedge denim, with a chinstrap, changeable ring buttons with an incredible “Cock O’ the Walk” logo, and a nicely detailed watch pocket with a slanted buttonhole for a watch chain.
