Levi’s celebrates its 150th anniversary with a limited release of five models, including 1873.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Levi’s patent (i.e. the day jeans were born), five limited edition models will be available, including the 1873 model – the early 501XX.

I think this denim have […]
