Levi's 501 Magazine Adandrei (59 pencils) | Wed, 2006-02-15 18:25
this is an ad for the Levi's 501 jeans, which are the first jean ever made, please give me your opinion.
the line says: "1 /34 yards of Denim, 213 yards of thread, 5 buttons, 6 rivets.
LEVI's 501 Original Since 1890"
from the Levi's history:
The denim for the riveted work pants came from the Amoskeag Mill in Manchester, New Hampshire, a company known for the quality of its fabrics. Within a very short time, all types of working men were buying the innovative new pants and spreading the word about their unrivaled durability. Around 1890, these pants were assigned the number 501, which they still bear today.
So, the next time you see someone wearing a pair of Levi's® 501® jeans, remember that these pants are a direct descendant of the original pair made in 1890. And it was two visionary immigrants, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis, who turned denim, thread and a little metal into the most popular clothing product in the world - blue jeans.
