Competitor Comparison ◦ Our main competitor is Diesel. The main distinctions between Levi and Diesel products is the fact that Levi’s offers a variety of practical styles, while Diesel offers strictly the couture look. The MSRP is also higher with Diesel products, which makes it a brand that caters to a niche population.
Competitor Comparison ◦ The main differences between the two jackets: ◦ The Diesel jackets run small and do not fit the same with every size ◦ There is no authenticity in the styles of jackets and makes it hard for the customer to wear it with several different outfits
Style Benefit ◦ The key component to Levi Strauss products is the level of quality they provide. In addition to this jacket being one of a kind, it is classic in that it is true to the design of the original blue jean created by Mr. Strauss and Mr. Davis. ◦ The jacket is an executive style jacket that can be worn in any setting. The cropped look allows it to be paired with a pair of jeans or dress pants.
