I thought that this was worth posting. It's a 40R but was tagged as a XXL and priced accordingly (at $14.99). It's burgundy. Nothing special, but racers have their fans.

^ That is sick.
Any vintage Levi's experts? Picked this Type 1 jacket in NYC, but I'm unsure if it's an original or an LVC reproduction. It has all of the right details to date it in the 1930's/1940's (jerky tag, Levi Strauss & Co SFCAL buttons, Big E single sided tag), but some fading at the arms that seems off. Anyone have any insight?
If that thing is part of a suit, whoever broke it up did that jacket a favour.
I'd say dressy chinos or tan or brown pants, or the aforementioned medium grey trousers would look good, with an ecru or not super dressy white shirt and a solid navy or burgundy tie, maybe a knit.
I do mostly agree with you about the almost too good condition of the leather tag and red tag. On the other hand, I've only seen LVC's with general sizes (small/medium/large), not numbered sizes.
