  • 5. 4 5 Safely preserved in a vault deep inside our headquarters in San Francisco lies an archive of over 20,000 rare and unique examples of Levi’s® clothing and artefacts dating back to as early as 1873. Kept at an even temperature and wrapped in unbleached cotton, these delicate specimens are carefully protected by the Levi’s® Historian and strictly reserved for the use of our designers. Each season, our team pores through the archives with white-gloved hands, uncovering the secrets of our past and then bringing them back into the world through faithful reproductions that are as fresh now as they were back then.

  • 11. 16 17 Detroit in the 1960s was an exciting city with an explosive music scene. While a new wave of garage bands churned out revolutionary rock and roll, Motown Records was introducing Young America to Motor City’s new groove. And in the innermost part of the hardworking home of the American Car industry, youth from the surrounding neighborhoods gathered together, soaked up the new sounds and established their own style. For Fall Winter 2013, Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ pays tribute to Mo Town’s musical revolution and the slick stylings of the people that were there.

Originally given the lot number 911 but later called the 519, it was made from sturdy Bedford corduroy and featured a zipper fly, tapered inseam and an impeccably slim fit. In the swinging, techni-color 1960s, Levi’s® began to evolve the plain white tee by introducing simple jersey cotton shirts in a rainbow of colors and striped patterns. The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ 1960s Striped Tee is a slim, neat and tidy jersey cotton T-shirt with a high neckline and a chest pocket. It is offered in different colors and with different repeat patterns. FOG HARVEST GOLD OLIVE WINDSOR WINE GREEN STRIPE RED STRIPE YELLOW STRIPE FALL AND WINTER 2013 Although the Levi’s® 501® is arguably the most important garment of the modern age, Levi Strauss and Company is also responsible for introducing or popularizing a series of other iconic pieces of clothing throughout the last two centuries. Every season, Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ offers a selection of the most notorious of these “Icons”, reviving the fits, fabrics and details of original garments found in the Levi’s® Archives.

  • 40. 74 75 1954 501®Z JEANS 1950s TAB TWILL CHINOS 1950s SHORTHORN SHIRT 1950s SPORTSWEAR TEE In the 1950s, Levi Strauss & Co. added a zipper to its iconic 501® Jean to appeal to East Coasters who were uncomfortable with the traditional button fly. Aside from the “Z”, the 1954 501®Z Jean was like all other 501® Jeans of its time. Built from 12 oz. Cone Mills red selvage denim and had two covered rivets on both back pockets, a leather Two Horse patch and a double needle stitched Arcuate. Popular with service station attendants, repairmen, college students and beat poets, Tab Twill Chinos were affordable work pants originally inspired by US military uniforms. The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ Tab Twill Chinos feature a Tab Twill label on the waistband, tunnel belt loops and strong welt pockets made from genuine boat sail cloth. They’re regular fitting and have been heavily washed for added softness. The Shorthorn shirt derived its name from the Shorthorn bull depicted on the label. It retained the bold colors and inventive check patterns of western shirts, but was stripped of flashy rodeo details. The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ 1950s Shorthorn Shirt is offered in both a yellow and a brown check cotton flannel and features two flap pockets and a Levi’s® Western Wear Label. Americans had more opportunities for leisure in the ‘50s and with that came a more relaxed and casual approach to dress. The 1950s Sportswear Tee is similar to the iconic tee popularized by Marlon Brando in the film, The Wild One. It is made from 100% cotton and bears the original ‘50s-era Levi’s® Sportswear of California label.

  • 41. 76 77 1947 501® JEANS 1955 SAWTOOTH DENIM SHIRT When World War II ended, Levi Strauss & Co. offered up a new, slimmer fitting 501® to usher in the style of post-war America. Stripped of unnecessary details like the cinch and suspender buttons— the 1947 501® Jeans were made of 12 oz. Cone Mills red selvage denim and had two covered rivets on both back pockets, a Two Horse leather patch and a big “E” Red Tab. This is one of the many versions Levi’s® made of the Western denim shirt, and certainly the most classic. It’s referred to as the Sawtooth shirt due to its distinctive pocket flap shape, which resembles the teeth of a saw blade. It is slim fitting and has mother of pearl snaps, Western yoke detailing and the Levi’s® Western Wear Label. RIGID ROUGH HOUSE VANISHING POINT TUMBLEWEED NEW RINSE RAM SHACKLED BRIGHT BLUE EMBROIDERY (Randomly placed mushroom embroidery) ALL IN ONE The classic one-piece long underwear, commonly referred to as the Union Suit, originated in the United States during the latter part of the 19th century. This Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ 1920s All in One is made from a red melee wool and cotton blend with a woven placket at front, bone buttons and a button flap rear referred to as the fireman’s hatch.

The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ 1950s 701® is made from a soft 10 oz. pink selvage denim, has a Red Tab, spade shaped back pockets, a long talon zipper fly and concealed back pocket rivets. A classic Baseball Tee from the “Bad News Bears” era with half-length contrast sleeves, an easy fitting body and the Levi’s® Lazy L label.

  • 43. 80 81 How to WASH, WEAR & CARE for your RIGID 501 ® s
  • 44. 82 83 Keep ‘em Rigid WASH ‘em GOOd DIP IN THE ‘TUB Some folks like to wear their rigid 501®s without washing. The wear effect on a true rigid jean will always give the most dramatic look. You can dry-clean, but that’s only if you don’t mind chemicals being used on your denims. Some people spray vinegar when their jeans hang inside out to remove any odour. Some simply hang their jeans outside for a few days. Folding jeans into the freezer also does the same job. If you prefer a thorough wash and simply don’t have the time for handwashing, wash inside out at 86° F / 30° C. Don’t tumble-dry: it’ll shrink too much. Dry in the open air if you can, or hang them in a warm place until crispy dry. Long-term shrinkage will occur over several washes. The very first time you wear your 501®s, climb into the bathtub and let them soak on your body for up to half an hour. Drain the tub, squeeze the excess water from your legs then get outside in the sunshine to dry them into your shape. Otherwise, bend and stretch while wearing them indoors until you can carefully slip out of them and dry them over the back of a chair. When your jeans are dirty, simply climb back into the bathtub and wash with a little soap. If you don’t plan to wash your 501®s, buy one size smaller in the waist and true size for length. After a few wears the waist will stretch to your size. If you plan to wash your 501®s, buy two sizes bigger in the waist and length and wash to achieve your size. -1 +2 The following guidelines are considering law of averages with our Levi’s® Vintage Clothing™ 501® jeans. Each denim will shrink and skew in a slightly different way. Different temperatures will also have an effect. The options for how you wash, wear and care for your 501® jeans are vast. It’s up to you to make your choice and stick to it. Enjoy this journey and long-term love affair. GET THE RIGHT FIT If you plan to shrink your 501®s in the bathtub, buy your true size in the waist but two sizes bigger in length. After shrinking in the bathtub, make sure to stretch the waist back out while still wet: this method will help achieve a slimmer silhouette. +2 +2 one that suits you best      
  • 45. 84 85 1970s Levi’s® tee, 1970s 684® Jeans The Levi’s® Brand first used the Orange Tab on a line of affordable, slim-fitting jeans, jackets and shirts designed for the Young Americans of the 1960s and 70s.
