May 20, 1873 was the day Levi Strauss and his business partner received the patent for what would become 501 jeans. 501 jeans are iconic, having evolved for over a century but remaining relevant across consumer demographics through the decades.
Pieces in the limited edition collection include a trucker vest, a men’s original 501 style and a women’s 501 short. Retail price points range from $128 to $298. On the 501, designer Jim Walrod said, “They are a representation of every single period, the way a good piece of design is.”
The design inspiration for the limited edition collection comes from American cities known for music and that cultivate Levi’s signature nostalgia for Americana. SF, NY, Austin and Nashville contribute to the aesthetic of the hand-distressed and embroidered limited pieces.
