Meet the Levi’s Vintage 1878 Triple Pleat Jacket, 136 years later and still relevant today. The Pleat Jacket was originally designed and crafted by Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis in the 19th century as work wear for miners. Just as it was 136 years ago, these jackets are still made in America with 100% raw 12 oz cotton denim. It looks nothing like the typical jean jackets you’re used to seeing, this jacket features the signature 2 copper rivet-reinforced front pockets, the completely unique triple front expansion pleats, and the double back pleats with an adjustable back buckle. This timeless piece may very well be Levi’s first kick at denim jackets, but has paid dividends and will continue to do so years to come.
