Denim, duck or whatever kind of fabrics jackets are made out of.

White Feather was wiped out, so here is my 1875 Krouse double pleat denim jacket, made by White Feather- does anyone know if they're still in business?
This was made for 2015 or 2016 Denimbruin ( I don't remember?)

I wore this for 2 winter seasons here in So Cal, probably  wore it everyday
total of maybe 6 months.

This was made in duck and denim- IIRC Hollows has the duck version.

My iphone was run over about a year ago, so this is the best picture i could find
of a jacket we found back in 2017...Early 1880's, pack rat chew in the worst possible place.

Fingers crossed for something in my size- preferably a
1880’s triple pleat Levi jacket, I’ll take a Boss of the road,
We found one of those in 2017....again it was too small and fragile.

That would be really something. On average how much stuff do you keep for yourself, Mike?

In years past, I tried to keep everything, maybe sell 1 piece a year when work slowed. In 2017- 5 days after the last
Denimbruin, my father went into a tail spin, I was missing a lot of work having to take care of him on and off, for the last
8 months of his life....At the same time- we needed to buy 4 new/used cars, living in So Cal means I can put between
25,000-40,000 miles a year on a car...Long story kind of short- I had to sell off most of my collection- better news, I’m in a
Position now to keep almost everything I find

Just Incase another denimbruin comes along, but I’m not holding my breath on that one.

Jackets are 50 times harder to find than pants.

Mike, I'm glad to know you are now able to keep the good stuff. I'd love to come visit sometime, if you wouldn't mind having me drooling over your collection.

Sure, hopefully 2020 will bring more to look at, before you come down my way.
Welcome anytime.

WH Ranch Dungarees Champion Jacket. Only took 3 years to get it....
Vintage Cone 2x1 Denim feels lightweight. Maybe 8oz?

I’m pretty sure the Hubble telescope was built faster than that, and they probably didn’t get paid in full- upfront
But I’m just talking out my A


just noticed- blocking out a trademark stitchLOL

It looks awesome, Shredwin! Perhaps some things are worth waiting for?.... I'm glad you finally received it.

@CSL 3 years is a hell of a wait with pretty much no communication and he only made my jacket after I asked for my $1k for my jeans and jacket back.
Then he magically made my jacket in a day.
4 years now waiting for my jeans.

Shredwin, I get it. It's ridiculous that it's taken that long. Hopefully it's some consolation that the jacket looks good but maybe it isn't. Undoubtedly an experience like this will leave a bad taste in one's mouth.

Hi friends,
It's my first time posting here (apart from self-intro post) and would like to seek opinions from you guys. I have been working on a guide to date Levi's jackets from different era, it all began with just a self-entertaining project but at least I would like to make it right. I basically work alone for the project but I have consulted several vintage denim lovers/collectors in the mean time. I have come up with my first draft (still a lot of missing anyway) and would like to share with all of you. I would love to receive opinions from you guys in order to make things more accurate. It would be even grateful if some of you can show me vintage pieces that can prove me wrong/complete the project even more.
So here is the link for my little self-entertaining project. Tongue

Hey Deninseeker, welcome and great project!

I have a type from what I can ascertain to be between '68-'73 with a big 'E', smaller label, navy thread under the pocket, and what I think is 524 stamped on the button backs (it's almost too worn down to tell). Interesting enough is it has a bigger buttonhole on the cuffs with chainstich that strikes through the middle to create two separate holes for adjustable tightness. Not sure if this was done post-production, but you can see pics on http://https://www.denimbro.com/levi-strauss-18731973_topic12_page122.html" rel="nofollow - page 122 of the Levi Strauss 1873-1973 thread.

Nice. Is there a map pocket inside or what are those rivets for?

Those are inside buttons, they button the internal flap of material.....It’s what I’m guessing bluetrain was referring to- as a gas flap?

Mine is also denim, but doesn't have much visible wear. Not from lack of love for the design, just an excess of jackets. 

Yours is looking great and makes me want to put more miles on my own. It's a piece that I will never ever sell, in spite of the lack of wear thusfar.

I’ve had a certain individual try and buy mine, more than one time-
I too, feel like I will never sell it....The same here, I haven’t worn it, in over a year.
My arm fades I think- has mainly been from shoveling horse dooooo.

Seeing galaxy wash in person for the first time, I like it!
Certainly it won't be everyone's cup of coffee.

I'm digging this SSZ jacket! The SSZ guy (ex-Beams) was tired of the exact reproductions and decided to produce an A-2 in nylon with a wider fit which gives it a bit of coach jacket look.
