It does look like it might be some sort of hide?

Been looking at old photos from Mexico, found this interesting one from Mexico City in the 1920s by an etsy seller selling reprints:



It’s probably just the bluriness because it looks like a triple pleat; nice hat and boots too:

Sure looks like a triple, but I’ve yet to see any example of a triple pleat that made it out of the 1880’s? Arizona back in the day was very Levi loyal, I suspect it was partially due to the heavy advertising Levi did....I read in 1914- about the brand loyalty, amongst the Hispanics in Arizona, seems that had something to do with Levi’s success in Arizona. Nice photo

Yeah, I wonder if someone stocked up on them in Mexico and somehow this was held onto or sold years down the line; the photos from this collection date about 1915-1930 so 1915 is the earliest this could have been taken.

Throw in Arizona weather and people holding onto jackets for a long time- it’s possible, would be great to
Look at the original photo with a jewelers loop- sure looks like 3 pleats to me?


Your ordinary 2 pleated jacket above^^^

Shit- just saw the- it’s a photo from Mexico City- Arizona Mexico, close enough
I have a friend that had a 1880ish Levi pant- with an ink stamp saying pantaloones ( spelling that wrong)
I believe Levi was exporting clothing down to mexico.
