This jacket by Levi’s represents vintage denim tuxedo jacket offered to the legendary American crooner Bing Crosby in 1951. As more of a conceit, Levi’s made this jacket especially for Mr. Crosby in the wake of an incident when a Canadian hotel refused to give him an entrance because of him being dressed up head to toe in denim. He happened to love this jacket so much that he started to wear it on his press appearances for his movie “Here Comes the Groom”. With 100% cotton outer and polyester lining, this cool apparel has peak lapels, double breasted opening with shank stud buttons, and two front one chest welted pockets. A huge leather patch is stitched inside the jacket scribbled on it “Notice to Hotel Men Everywhere”. It’s a straight fit, in vogue and perfectly apposite fabric for anyone who aims at being impressionistic.
