Who copped a pair of these limited-edition @levis hand-drawn 501’s 1955 model?
In celebrating the 150-year history of the 501® jean, Levi's were drawn (pun intended) to honor its distinctive details with a quirky twist: Every detail of the 1955 501® - from the Two-Horse Pull patch to the packaging and even the Red Tab - has been meticulously recreated by hand.
This special is made from deadstock @conedenim White Oak Red Selvedge Denim. Its produced in a limit run of 501 pieces.
Retailer @cultizm has still some sizes left!

Last week, I was in Milan to visit the denim fabric trade show @denimbypv and the day after I had time to visit some (denim) stores in the city, so finally I made it to check out the great @unionfadestore by Cristian and Andrea (on the pic here)!
Their store is a must visit for each denim head as it’s a true vintage heaven! This week a look inside the store will be published on Long John, so stay tuned…! 💪
Thanks for your time, Andrea! Good to see you again. 🤠
Selvedge Sunday it is! 🔥
For over 150 years jeans have been made with so-called selvedge fabrics. These kinds of selvedge fabrics are known for their self-edges on both ends. Sometimes, (also spelled as selvage and sometimes as salvage). This means that they are cleanly finished directly off the loom, with self-finished edges. So, they don’t need to be lock stitched afterward as they don’t fray. Selvedge fabrics are woven on authentic shuttle looms. These narrow looms are run by a wooden shuttle that flows back and forth constantly, resulting in the self-edges. This weaving process is a slow process as they can ‘only’ produce around 100 meters of denim fabrics within 24 hours. And the fabrics are quite small, around 70 – 80 centimeters (27’’ – 28’’).
