Last year Levi’s Jeans introduced an amazing acquisition, the New Nevada – one of the oldest pairs of riveted waist overalls in the world. This jeans dates back from 1880. The jeans are in near perfect condition, save for wear marks and a few minor holes and tears, plus decades of dirt and grime. Before Levi’s Jeans add their latest purchases to their archive they clean the items first before they put it in their vault in tissues and boxes kept at a constant temperature. This extends the life of the garment. Check in the video below how they clean this old and very rare Levi’s ‘New Nevada’ Jeans from 1880.
