Two weeks ago a really cool new denim book came out: The 501XX – A collection of vintage jeans. The book is a sort of homage to Levi’s Jeans as it captures vintage Big E jeans from 1890 till 1966. The book shows 51 unique and rare examples which are in hands of Japanese Levi’s Jeans collectors. One of them is Yutaka Fujihara, and he’s also the maker of this great book. The book is a true history book as it comes to the rich heritage of Levi’s Jeans. All the details from every 501 era are fully described in 200 pages with photos and text in Japanese and English language. The book came in two editions, one limited edition which has a denim cover with golden letters (only 501 pieces were printed and were sold out within week!) and a regular version. Check below the cover of the regular edition. Big bravo to Levi’s expert Yutaka for this amazing denim document! Happy that I got my hands on a copy.
