1950s CREW SWEATSHIRT GREY MELEE
Cotton jersey became popular during the post war years as a warm yet soft alternative to wool. The 1950s Crew Sweatshirt is a faithful reproduction of the examples produced by Levi's back then. It features a saddle sleeve construction with flatlock stitching which is different from a raglan sleeve in that it extends through the bottom upper portion of the arm.

Levi's introduced Levi’s Vintage Clothing to keep the history of Levi's denim alive. Since 1999, the famous historical originals from the Levi's archives in San Francisco, dating back to 1880, are faithfully reincarnated in this limited edition range. Their inspiration is the hardworking man that the Levi’s Brand has equipped for the last 140 years. The ring spun denim is still woven on 29" wide vintage shuttle looms in Greensboro, North Carolina with whom Levi Strauss & Co have been working with for over 100 years.
