Levi's® Vintage Clothing XX 1880 Triple Pleat Blouse - RIGID (Made in the US Cone Mills Denim)

Low Stock

The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing 1880 Triple Pleat Blouse is a reproduction of our oldest 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.

• Levi’s® branded metal buttons

On December 31st 2017 Cone Mills White Oak Plant closed it’s doors for the last time spelling the end of an era for US denim and in particular US denim for Levi's®. Cone Mills have supplied Levi's® since 1915 when a hand shake agreement made them exclusive suppliers of XX denim for their 501’s®. 

Levi's® Vintage Clothing have now used up all remaining stock of Cone Mills denim so are now using Japanese denim. They have also moved production from the US to Turkey (where a lot of regular Levi's® range is already made). There will be no more US made US denim Levis anytime soon if ever.
