LEVI’S® VINTAGE CLOTHING 501® JAPAN JEAN29 April 2020Highligts-enNEWS This post is also available in: Ita Levi’s® Vintage Clothing launches an all-Japanese 501® jean. It’s a nod to a popular 1966 501® that was released exclusively to Japan in the 1990s. This version of the Levi’s® classic is made entirely from Japanese selvedge denim, and with every single detail—the back patch, the red tab, fabric tags, the packaging, even the stamping on the buttons—translated to Japanese. Levi’s® Vintage Clothing originally dropped this jean in July 2019 as a limited edition 100-pair release at the opening of the new Levi’s® store in Tokyo’s famed Harajuku district. April 30th , it will be available globally, though still limited quantities, and will celebrate the fact that moving forward all 501® Shrink-to-Fit™ fabrics for Levi’s® Vintage Clothing will come from Japan. For the past 100 years, Cone Mills had previously supplied Levi’s® with these fabrics, and now the baton has officially been passed with the release of the 501® Japan Jean.
