Where it all started: Levi's jeansIt all started in 1873, when Oskas Levi Strauss patented his innovative men's jeans. The blue denim jeans with rivets were unique at the time, but quickly conquered the world. About 30 years later, the Levi men's jeans were therefore a worldwide concept. Since then, Levi's continued to innovate with new models of jeans and the expansion of the clothing collection to include T-shirts, shirts and other items. However, the real classics have always remained: the Levi's 501 and the Levi's 511.
Levi's 501 & Levi's 511The Levi's 501 was the very first model that Levi's launched. The number 501 refers to the first shipment of blue cotton that was shipped to America from Nimes in France for the production of the Levi's jeans. In fact, this Levi 501 became the forerunner of all other Levi jeans. Characteristic of this model is the button closure, the width around the hips and the straight legs. During the early years of Levi's success, this Levi's 501 has actually remained unchanged. The men's jeans were sewn on a piece of denim measuring exactly 71 cm wide, so that the so-called selvedges fell exactly on the outside of the legs. As the success grew, so did the production, after 1984 the 501 jeans were made on larger looms for a faster and more precise production. Now, spacious 130 years later, the Levi's 501 is still a great success, it has become a true collector's item!
The Levi's 511 is also an iconic model of men's jeans today. The cool pants have a modern, slim fit with a slimmer leg. Favorite with many trendy men who love a casual look! The 511 jeans offer a lot of comfort and room to move and are therefore a true classic.
