Get ready to dress like one of the most intelligent human beings to ever walk our planet. Levi’s Vintage Clothing is launching an exact replica of the historic Meno Cossack Jacket commonly wore by Albert Einstein. Acquired by Levi’s in 2016 at a Christie’s auction, Einstein’s original jacket featured 100% Italian sheep leather construction and vintage labels. The replica keeps every element, but introduces the garment in black.
The jacket will be sold in a limited edition set of 500 and comes with a tongue-in-cheek replica of the No. 97 auction paddle that was used to bid on this historic garment. To be even more like Einstein, Levi’s also recreated the scent of his jacket in partnership with Brooklyn-based perfume house D.S & Durga. The scent evokes a warm blend of burley pipe tobacco, papyrus manuscripts, and vintage leather.
The replica Levi’s Menlo Cossack Jacket jacket will be on sale tomorrow, December 4, on Levis.com as well as select Levi’s stores for $1,200.00. Swipe through the gallery above to take a closer look.
