Rarities | Pre-War Levi’s x Abercrombie Collaboration!

Highlight from the up and coming Inspiration LA ’Vintage Auction’, Feb 2012.

Late 1930s to Early 1940s buckle back, jerky patch, crotch rivet etc. Super rare collaboration with the original A&F company in NYC, back when A&F were an outdoor sporting goods company, NOT the modern sexed up brand that exists today!

Interesting East/West coast collaboration going on here, would love to know some more info on this! Anyone?

Just found out that A&F were the first people to bring levis to the east coast, they also used to sew labels into other outsourced items of clothing such as duxback jackets.
