Give Me Head Until I'm Dead 1970's Levi's (with big E) Chain Stitched Denim Jacket (Unisex!)

Sold

 

Item Description:
Our friend knocked it out of the park while customizing this already amazing 1970's Levi's jacket with our favorite graphic found on one of the most rare Harley shirts there is. This baby is direct-to-garmet chain stitched- this is NOT a patch!

P
assed down his family for over 70 years, he truly is the master of chain-stitching - and loves doing it on old jackets nonetheless, using antique tools and threads to go along with the vintage clothing that he collects and uses. 

Chain stitch is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern. Chain stitch is an ancient craft - examples of surviving Chinese chain stitch embroidery worked in silk thread have been dated to the 5th – 3rd century BC. Chain-stitching the back of this jacket took 5-6 straight hours.

Please note the pricing on these jackets is higher in order to pay the skilled craftsmen what they deserve for their time, work, and skill- not to mention the amazing vintage piece itself!
