This is a great example of vintage Levis 1960s Type III Trucker Jacket.
The jacket is indigo in colour with some signs of wear consistent with its age, mainly around the collar. The jacket has:-
Two pointed flap chest pockets,
Big E tab,
Buttoned waist adjusters,
Copper buttons stamped 521 On the rear.
The label in the neck of the jacket, unfortunately doesn't have any size information printed so I've listed the sizes below.
Pit to Pit: 21"/53cm
Pit to Cuff: 19.5"/49.5cm
Shoulder to Cuff: 25"/63.5cm
I bought the jacket from ebay a couple of years ago, however I have not really worn is due to being a little too big and preferring a more fitted style. I believe the jacket to be dated from the late 1960s, based on the following information gathered from the internet.
Big E Tab: Present on Levi's jackets until 1971,
Type III Trucker with Big E: Late 1950s till 1971
Black stitching under pockets earlier versions the stitching was yellow: Introduced in the late 60s
Three digits stamped on the rear of the buttons: Introduce in the late 60s
