Levi Strauss & Co. created their first pair of Levi's® 501 Jeans in the 1890s, a style that went on to become the world's best selling item of clothing!
The Levi's® brand continue their mission for world domination by constantly innovating their covetable designs and their denim and the absolute eternal appeal of this brand icon meant that my unwavering love for all things vintage is what set me upon my conquest to find the perfect pair of vintage Levi's® 501 cut offs.
Now then, having discovered through much revision and homework on vintage apparel and the sizing of vintage apparel, it is true that vintage sizes often come up smaller than the corresponding contemporary size which meant that one’s booty (yes mine) went from a 26 inch waist to a 29 inch waist over night! I shall not repeat the word I used to express my exclamation of disapproval!
Oh yes, it’s true!
So anyway, when they arrived, they fitted beautifully, were high-waisted and complemented one’s seat very well which is also another reason for me loving this icon of denim-wear.
Levi's® is the very epitome of the American dream, from Cowboys to hip city dwellers!
