Blue or black, faded or fresh, torn or rugged so take your pick.

First created by Levi Strauss in 1873 to serve as a rugged protective layer for prospectors and cowboys, the denim jacket has remained durable, dependable, and popular throughout the years. Don’t take our word for it – a Levis historian recently discovered a jacket dating back to the 1880’s in an abandoned Southern California ghost town. They’re simple, effective and cool, and apparently will even outlast their owner by a century or so. While we’ve got nothing going so far back as the 1880’s, METROPOLIS VINTAGE always has a stock of classic denim jackets waiting on the rack. If they’ve worked for Dennis Hopper and The Marlboro Man, they’ll certainly work for you!
Don’t forget to stop by our ETSY store for many other cool items!
