Levi’s Authorized Vintage + Lot, Stock & Barrel
Levi’s, a brand that needs no introduction as the world’s most recognizable denim maker, has taken big steps with the launch of a new Authorized Vintage collection. The Authorized Vintage product, produced in collaboration with Lot, Stock and Barrel (a company I’m a part of), consists of Levi’s classics – think 501s, 505s, & Big E truckers – bringing the garments back to life for a second run.
The entire Authorized Vintage collection has been meticulously sourced, hand repaired, refurbished and only consists of Made in USA quality, ranging from the 1960’s to early 1990’s. This collection also marks the first time the 501CT – the streamlined version of the iconic 501 – will be offered and available in a vintage garment to the mass market. And as an added bonus, a select number of pieces have custom chain stitch embroidery that include various type of traditional Americana artwork.
Vintage Levi’s are having a good moment and it only makes sense to buy them from their original source. Unlike the LVC collection, which is an incredible reproduction to spec from its original counterpart, decades earlier, the Authorized Vintage product will suit the purest and the passionate alike.
