Following behind last year’s brown edition, Levi’s Vintage Clothing has returned with another replica of Albert Einstein’s favored Menlo Cossack jacket. This time around, the brand has opted for a sleek all-black shell, while retaining the same signature elements from the remake that draw from Einstein’s original.

Levi’s first acquired Einstein’s jacket at a Christie’s auction in 2016, taking cues from the retro style to inform the design details for the brand’s referential version. The LVC jacket — described as a stitch-by-stitch reproduction — is crafted from 100% Italian sheep leather and features front button closure, side pockets and a collar. Unlike LVC’s first Einstein repro jacket, the brand opted for a black iteration this go-round, inspired by the concept of Einstein attempting to disguise his signature style.

To add more to the experience, Levi’s partnered with perfume house D.S & Durga to create a scent that imagines what Einstein’s original jacket would have smelled like. The resulting mixture is laced with notes of burley pipe tobacco, papyrus manuscripts, and vintage leather for a warm, musky scent. Rounding out the special-edition package is a replica of the Christie’s auction paddle, complete with eyeholes to further the disguise motif..

LVC’s Einstein Menlo Cossack Jacket, perfume and paddle will be sold together for $1,200 USD, limited to just 500 sets. The set will be available beginning December 4 at select Levi’s stores, as well as at Levi’s website.

Elsewhere, Levi’s recently unveiled its upcoming collaboration with BAPE that will launch exclusively at Sole DXB.
