Levi's 1880s Re-Issued XX

Own a piece of denim history with Levi's 1880s Re-Issued "XX." The limited-edition 100 percent cotton jeans are an exact replica of the oldest known Levi's model, which dates from about a decade after the company's 1873 founding. The jeans have the same cut as the legendary 501 but were called simply "XX" for "extra, extra" strong. Fittingly, only 501 numbered remakes were stitched together, and they all come well broken-in. $501;
