Image attached on 501XX Front cover page I print it out myself lol As like this Nice one Can I ask title? It is Levi's Vintage Denim Jackets Type1 Type2 Type3 We had only 501XX model in last edition If we talk about Levi's Type1, first type as Origin I'm wearing today, Second type Third Type, we have 3 models We wrote this on timeline In this jacket edition We asked to get approval using “Levi's” for title name And Levi's allow us to do it When it was 501XX edition We talked to Levi's San Francisco Director of Archive Lynne Downey on that time Her name is on here as well We have new director today Tracy, then we talk to her To check text everything And our English phrases too Most hardest part on this edition was Levi's first jacket model 506XX is very old model Like, late 1800's to Early 1900's We hardly reached it first model from early 1900's Couldn't reach & find it Even though Vintage store in Japan doesn't have it Personal collectors either It is really rare item today It was so hard to reach it To get first model was big challenge So, how did you guys try to reach? Asking people to others? Yes, contact to collectors Introduced us one another Some one answered “yes, I have” We were supported by many people this time Luckily we found amazing pieces Here in Japan Japanese collectors are fabulous I'm proud of it After special vintage More special item there I thought it So many special pieces into us How we could put everything in 200 pages? We discuss it many times With my partner Naoki From SMILeY as vintage store in MITO We've been knowing so long time Talk a lots This was really tough time to choose Wow, then we still have some of those in here? Yes This jacket I'm wearing today This is on book too Many people talking this 2 lines on the side We call this “HAGI” in Japanese (seam) Only bigger than size 42 have this Which makes jacket bigger size Much wider This is first type This model is on book too So, what is this model like? This is with Blanket lining Which means.

.

This is not 506XX This could be 519XX 519XX Over 48 size has Separate type on the back Looks like letter “T” I've been telling this to audience T-Back This T-BACK price raised up in Japan market today Really big changes last a few years I think it is because of you that To hear the name T-Back many times With Blanket makes jacket Like this has honeycomb As same as jeans on the arm part this without blanket but Beautiful fading here I also have been telling this Even without blanket but Why became beautiful fade is Maybe people in cold location Waring knitwear inside And work jacket on Otherwise never happen like this not tight enough If blanket attached Thick enough here To make it fade beautiful like this This is my personal Look at this, it's a big size Then, we have Second type T-back too I realized Seeking jacket, others Listen to many collectors Only in Japan Second T-back are Only 4 jackets today Some collector may have im guessing someone has it, but We here in Japan has As I know We have 3 jackets more All total 4 jackets only Very rare model This is 48、that's 50 size From size 52 become T-Back for second type for second type That first type was From size 46 changes This is 50's Slide buckle This buckle appeared Around 1950's we found this type And after this From size 48 became T-BACK We had 46 T-back before What about fabric width Mills had wider fabric compare with old The newer age, wider fabrics And which made The size bigger to be T-back, I guess Is that Correct? For example this second type Both side has double seam Which means until size 50 We didn't have to have T-back Adjust on side seam This 48, side seam Second type This is on book Look at this carefully Size 50 50 doesn't have T-Back Check the leather patch size 50 This is the proof here Size 50 not T-Back means This jacket should be 52 bigger I measured it was 54 507XX EEE triple E type Exactly extra order size So, we found these pieces And check the answers, right? Yes we do People love vintage likes old stuff Many people loves older items If 501XX, before 1930's Acording to this jacket book Old stuff are interesting Of course it is but, On the other hands Second type jacket it never before to us There are 2 or 3 jacket on book Not old stuff but, second type It is very interesting People from the world Love vintage didn't have a chance to see 2 second jacket there Second type, insane Big surprise there Hey, when it gonna be released?
