Following several reissues of its classic 501® Jeans, Levi’s Vintage Clothing returns with another offering — a faithful reproduction of the Menlo Cossack Jacket that the great theoretical physicist Albert Einstein bought and wore extensively in the ’30s. Einstein was famously pictured wearing the piece on the Apr. 4, 1938, weekly issue of TIME Magazine, granting the jacket cult status amongst collectors and enthusiasts.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing previously reissued the jacket in 2018 and again in 2019 in black. This time around the Menlo Cossack leather jacket returns in women’s sizing dressed in cognac-tinted calfskin with a shape that replicates the original form and fitting. Featured on the packaging is an illustration of Einstein smoking a cigar covered in lipstick kiss patterns. Inside is an additional photograph of the physicist and an homage to the “#97” Christie’s paddle which won the auction for Einstein’s original leather jacket — perhaps the most famous jacket in Levi’s history.

The women’s-exclusive Menlo Cossack Jacket will be available via Levi’s Japan’s online store as well as the brand’s Harajuku Flagship and Osaka locations beginning December 1. Priced at ¥165,000 JPY (approximately $1,190 USD), only 250 pieces will be made available.
