A nice touch from the good designers who operate Levi’s Vintage. Even if you don’t play hockey, there is a nice sense of Americana with a proper old-school hockey look, and this doesn’t even look like you are going to the Devils game. And you can buy it from the UK.

The World’s Oldest Jean: Levi’s XX c. 1879

This is really cool: a video that Levi’s made about the world’s oldest jean. The pair is on tour right now, and it appears to have just landed at Tokyo’s Shibuya district Levi’s store. And Levi’s expert, Lynn Downey, talks about the history of the pair of XXs. Amazingly, this pair of jeans gets its own bodyguard.

Supreme and Levi’s Team Up for a micro collection

Each collection that Supreme puts out, they do about one or two collaborations that make a very good deal of sense. Adam Kimmel suits were a good call, Thom Browne chambrays were great (we even picked one of those up), the North Face collabs keep coming, and the Vans stuff always looks nice. We figured at some point, with Levi’s being all over the place these days culturally and fashionly, that these two would team up. For Fall/Winter 2011, you are seeing some nice Americana with Japanese influence looks, with a Supreme Edition of the classic Levi’s 505 Zip-Fly Jean, a Chambray Work Shirt, a Trucker Jacket in Leather and Suede, a Denim Down Vest, and a Denim Bell Hat. All products are Made In The U.S.A., which Supreme doesn’t normally do.

Rising labour costs and a shortage of cotton means jeans are getting more expensive

According to the Telegraph, “the era of Chinese factories churning out dirt-cheap goods is over.” Well, that means that those really crappy H&M jeans you were going to be buy are going to go up in cost. And, please be careful buying $200+ True Religion jeans. That is like spending $25 for a stick of gum.

According the article:

If you own a pair of jeans, there is a strong chance that it was stitched in Xintang, or that its denim was woven there. A sleepy farming town 30 years ago, it is now home to a million factory workers and turns out 260 million pairs of jeans a year – more than a third of the world’s supply.

The town’s geography maps out an anatomy of the denim trade. Along the wide arterial motorways leading out of Xintang are the large factories, some capable of producing 60,000 pairs a day for the likes of Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler.

Their technology is world-class – good enough for even the more esoteric and high-end denim labels like True Religion, Evisu and Diesel that were once only made in Japan or Italy.

“Last July, cotton cost 70 cents a pound,” said Richard Atkins, a denim expert in Hong Kong and former creative director of All Saints, a high-end clothing brand. “Last week, it was three times that price. I tried to place an order with a denim mill for one million yards and they told me they could not accept it because the cotton is now worth more than the denim.”

For no other reason than the aesthetic looks good, not even if having a Levi’s and Pendleton gallery in NYC, away from their West Coast homes, is a little odd, but there are no good hotels in SF for this, so NYC is the center of the world and there you go. Brad Bunyea shot the photos, and the pop-up gallery will be up through December 15, 2010.
