Love this story on what’s thought to be the oldest pair of women’s jeans in existence. They’re Levi’s of course, and were owned by Viola Longacre, a student teacher who bought then in the early 30s. The cut is surprisingly contemporary (I’d snap these up in a heartbeat), which proves why people lust after vintage Levi’s. Their fits are egalitarian, the fabric is fairly hardwearing and they’re made for Getting Things Done. These jeans were discovered in an estate sale and were then acquired by Levi’s for its archive for an undisclosed sum.
It would be great to see these reissued as a tribute to Levi’s history.
