Einstein's Menlo Cossak Leather Jacket

Levi's Vintage Clothing

$1,200.00 Regular price

The often obsessed-over Levi's Menlo Cossak Jacket is one of the most talked about leather jackets of all time and largely due to Albert Einstein wearing an absolutely perfectly worn-in Menlo on the cover of Time magazine in their April, 1938 issue. Recently, Christie's Auction House put Einstein's jacket up for auction, ultimately won by Levi's for nearly $147,000. Levi's Vintage Clothing this season has taken great care to duplicate this jacket as closely as possible. Only making 500 total units and making sure all the vintage details are there: the shorter collar, brown buttons, inner left hand tag, and the perfect patina of the original. The jacket is hand-numbered and comes packaged in a great custom collector's box with a duplication of the winning auction paddle, a black and white photo of Einstein wearing the Menlo, and a vial of perfume that emulates the essence that the jacket smelled like - hints of pipe tobacco and cedar pencils. This is a truly unique jacket, packaged to give you the full experience of the original. Each jacket is a collector's piece that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
