Typically we know what to expect from Levi’s Vintage Clothing‘s new collections. There’ll be archival tees, slimmed-down 501s that masquerade as “stitch-for-stitch repros,” and one outside-of-the-box, zany piece!
This year, they doubled-down on an out-there tux. A two-piece collection, their Soapbox Cord jacket and pants are made from a vibrantly chaotic corduroy patchwork. Cut from 11 different 14-wale corduroys, these two pieces aren’t for the faint of heart.
The limited edition jacket and pants are inspired by the legendary Type III jacket and Levi’s 70s cords respectively. Although the manufacturing provenance of the garments is unclear, they’re undoubtedly made to that high LVC standard and will almost certainly sell out soon.
The garish cord ensemble is meant to celebrate the 1975 soapbox derby put on by the San Francisco Museum of Art. You can wear this corduroy craziness together or separately, but no matter what, they’re both true statement pieces.
