Levi’s Jeans shared a story on their blog about this vintage Levi’s Lot 271 children’s bib overall. Lot 201 was first introduced in 1890 as a cheaper follow-up on the 501. The bib overall belonged to Dwight Dangberg who who died in 1904 of scarlet fever at the age of five. The family must have been devastated. After Dwight’s passing, they packed his belongings in the trunk, storing it out of sight in the attic, where it remained for a century. It’s a very sad story! The good thing about this is that the bib overall survived all those years and is now a great inspiration example. Thanks Levi’s for sharing this impressive story.
