LVC / 1915 501 Customised / Belle
During the California Gold Rush whilst others panned for gold, Levi Strauss was busy perfecting his xx Waist Overalls, which in 1890 would go on to be given the lot number 501. These became the uniform of cowboys, cattle hands and frontiersmen. For AW17, LVC pays tribute to those first customers of the 501 and has reproduced one of the earliest incarnations of the iconic jean. This 501 has been customised with pleats at the waist and a slightly wider cropped leg, all made in gorgeous selvedge denim.
