Levi’s Story Station

At Levi’s headquarters in San Francisco is a vault that is free and open for everyone. You can dive here into their long denim history, and see a part of their huge archive with documents, clothing, photographs, films, and other artifacts dating back to the mid-1800s.

In November 2018, they created a new look and included the ‘Tell us your Levi’s Story Station’. At this station, visitors can listen to memorable stories from Levi’s fans from all over the world. The good thing is you can also listen to all these unique denim stories online via their Levi’s Story Station platform.

My Levi’s Story

This week the historian of Levi’s, Tracey Panek, included my story about my original 501XX miner waist overall at the station.

Two weeks ago I made a full story about this pair which was found recently at a closed abandoned mine in Nevada, USA. This pair dates back to the early 1900s. In case you have missed this story, check it out here.

So, if you’re in San Francisco and visit Levi’s HQ you can hear my story about this miner pair. Of course, you can listen to it easily online too here. Enjoy.
