One of the most iconic denim jackets ever made is the LEVIS jacket Lot Number 506XX. The 506XX jacket was originally introduced in 1905. Actually they didn’t call it a jacket in those times, but a blouse. It was made of 9oz. unsanforized Amoskeag Manufacturing Company double heavy extra strong quality, that explains the XX. It was around 1917 that the term Number One (Type 1) was used for this Levi’s 506XX Jacket. The switch from the word blouse into jacket came in 1938 when the word jacket was used in the western wear catalog, Dude Ranch Duds.
