Topic: Finally.....got a Levi’s Menlo

I’ve been after a Levi’s Menlo jacket for a long time and finally got one today  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini

First impressions are that the sheepskin is incredibly soft and the jacket lighter than I expected.

Thanks to James Brosnan for his advice and help  ajb007/martini

Here’s a couple of quick photos. What do you think?

I read somewhere that the numbers on the CW- code on one of the white labels inside the jacket indicates the year it was produced. I contacted Levi’s and they confirmed this. Two numbers indicate the week in the year and two numbers indicate the year itself.

I second Enjoying Death... Welcome to the club ichaice. A motley global mob of dapper, rugged and stylish gents.

Here is my own Levi's 1930s Menlo... in cognac sheep leather. I am aware it's not the screen accurate colour, but as I have always said I never aim to copy 007. I just use the franchise's extremely expensive personal stylist for free  ajb007/lol . I tend to think of my style as 007-inspired.
