Levi’s 501 Jeans; 140 Years & Endless Interpretation
It has been almost two decades ago that I first had my pair of Levi’s jeans and since the Levi’s 501 is the most iconic jeans from Levi’s – or probably jeans in general – being a teenager that felt the need to belong somewhere, I picked the Levi’s 501 from any other jeans that Levi’s had at that time. They may not be the latest cut and shape, but the silhouette remains a classic that you can still wear today or for years to come without feeling that they’re outdated. I still remember my 501 pair vividly. They were a red pair of jeans and I am not the only one who’s reminiscing with the wide-array of Levi’s 501 colour selections back in the 90’s. Our favourite columnist. @LyndaIbrahim, too shares the same memory with me. But that’s the thing about Levi’s 501. Just with a little touch, you can bring them back to life and give them a touch of trend that is currently happening at the moment. It’s simply because Levi’s 501 jeans are a timeless piece.
So why are Levi’s 501 jeans so iconic? Because they never stop to evolve according to time and adapt to the changes that are faced by different generations. They’re also famous for their toughness and durability and their ability to sort of adapt themselves to the contours of the wearers’ bodies overtime to create a unique classic yet timeless shape of a jeans.
What’s difference with Levi’s 501 at their 140th anniversary? They’re coming out with a non-denim Levi’s 501 collection for the first time, while still embodies the Levi’s 501 gene and tradition, but with a touch of today’s trend.
Without much further ado, here are the Levi’s 501 and the different interpretations of how you could wear them.
