Levi's 71506-0316

Model with lining to 70506 that is the successor of 70505 of the denim jacket 4th model of Levi's. The hand warmers on both sides are a big difference from the 70505. In addition, because open end yarns are used in this period, the color fading differs from the early 70505, especially the spotted pattern characteristic of denim in the 1980s. \
