The Levi’s® vintage clothing 1880 triple pleat blouse is a reproduction of the oldest Levi’s® and earliest denim jacket. A hallmark of western workwear, it now sits in our San Francisco archives. It’s named for the three pleats that run on either side of the center front. These pleats were designed to allow for expansion by clipping the threads. Made in the USA, this jacket is cut from Cone Mills loomstate plain selvedge denim that has been made exclusively for us. For over 100 years, the Levi’s® brand has partnered with Cone Mills Denim in North Carolina. Distinguishing features include sewn-on metal branded buttons, large hand pockets and a cinched back with a leather patch at the waistband.
