Fashionbeans in association with Oki-ni are very proud to bring you news of an exclusive online launch of the Levi’s® 10th Anniversary pack to celebrate the birthday of their very first twisted leg jean. We always like to bring our loyal readers news of exclusive collections before anyone else and we can guarantee to you that "You can not buy these jeans anywhere else online."
The truly groundbreaking blueprint for the original Levi’s® twisted leg jean was inspired by a quirk in the original Levi’s® 501 jeans right-hand twill fabric construction which caused the legs of vintage Levi’s® to twist to the left.
|In a pioneering quest to bring new comfort and cutting edge style to denim, the new ‘twisted leg’ jeans revolutionized jeanswear aesthetics and functionality, revitalizing interest for denim at a time when the world looked at utility clothing as the ultimate urban uniform.|
In celebration of the 10th birthday of Levi’s® ‘twisted leg’ jean, Levi’s® have created a limited edition and very exclusive anniversary package, based on the two original men’s denim styles from 1999- the first Standard and the first Giant and a re-issue of an original 1999 t-shirt design.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of this landmark concept, Levi’s® has developed a celebration package for Spring/Summer 2009. This limited edition collection contains reissues of the first ‘twisted leg’ jeans- the first ‘Standard’ and the first ‘Giant’.
The denim is a complete re-creation of the original used in 1999, an innovative mix of cotton and hemp in an intense Red-Cast indigo shade. It is woven on a narrow loom with solid green selvage and finished with gold plated buttons cast from the original moulds.
All the anniversary editions are signed off with a bespoke Levi’s® 10th Anniversary’ label and are presented in an exclusive commemorative box.
