This Levi’s type 2 tracker jacket made in August 1994.
At that time, there was still no word for “Levi’s Vintage Closing”.
The product number is “71507”.
The current Levi’s Vintage Closing is 507XX, which is the same as the 50s Vintage.
The leather label is “71507”, also the inside display tag is “71507” XX.
No. 70,000 is the product number of the tracker jacket in Levi’s, so it’s no wonder.
Cotton 100% = 綿 100%
Made in Japan = 日本製
40 inches = 40インチ
Levi Strauss Japan Co., Ltd. = リーバイ・ストラウス ジャパンK.K.
The country of origin is made in Japan.
I think it was made in Japan until the first half of the 2000s, but I’m not sure.
There is an engraving of “J02” on the back of the button.
J is the first letter of Japan, J
You can tell from this stamp that it is made in Japan.
1990s items are now also called vintage.
Dead stock of size 40 and undamaged is rarely found more.
In the first place, there is almost no dead stock itself.
The same 1994 Levi’s book.
This tracker jacket is on it.
The book says 15oz vintage denim.
This dead stock Type 2 tracker jacket is Rinse, not raw denim.
I think that 15oz is between normal and heavy oz in denim, but when I touch it, I feel that the regular Levi’s 501 of the same age is harder.
Originally, denim clothes are work clothes.
Good work clothes are sturdy.
That’s why Regular 501 is a tightly packed denim with no unevenness.
Vintage denim is a reproduction of old denim.
There is no way to make denim of better quality than 90s in 50s, and there is unevenness and tension is weak.
That’s why it’s a cool fade.
So it may be the reason why this type 2 tracker jacket of vintage denim feels not stiff to the touch.
