Albert Einstein

got his LEATHER JACKET back

On July 14th 2016, Levi Strauss & Co. made the winning bid for a brown leather Levi’s® ‘Cossack’ jacket owned by Albert Einstein, which was auctioned at the prestigious Christie’s auction house in London.

The garment was purchased by Einstein when he was becoming a US citizen in the mid-1930s and was worn by him regularly during the period as he was becoming an "official" American. Einstein was often photographed in the jacket, with some of the most famous images including a photo by Lotte Jacobi in 1938 and a cover of TIME magazine in April of the same year.

This SS18, Levi’s Vintage Clothing will introduce an exact replica of the Original Einstein Menlo Cossack.
