Vintage DENIM JACKETS from METROPOLIS – Made to outlast their owner!

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!
