Limited-Edition Of 150 Pairs Only

Last year Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) already released this very limited pair of jeans to celebrate the opening of their Harajuku store in Japan. For the opening, they produced only 100 pairs of this rare pair, and the good news is that they made a re-production of another 150 pairs.

The 501 Model From 1966

For this limited-edition, they used a replica of the 501XX model from 1966. This replica was first released in Japan in the 1990s. The 1966 version of the ‘mother of all jeans models’ has a mid-rise style with tapered legs.

Japanese Selvedge Fabric

This special Japan version of the 501 from 1966 is made from a 12oz Japanese redline rigid selvedge fabric. The fabric is the brand’s iconic shrink-to-fit fabric.

Japanese Language Details

All the details on this limited-edition are made in the Japanese language, so the famous ‘Big E’ Red Tab, the Two Horse Patch, buttons and rivets, pocket flasher and even the guarantee ticket. This makes these jeans very special, and a true collector’s item.

Available At Selected Retailers

The jeans are available from April 30 at selected retailers, but you have to act fast as it’s already sold out at some stores, even at Levi’s own webshop.
