Levi's® Vintage Clothing source material is the own Levi's® archive, and the inspiration is the hardworking men and women the Levi’s® brand has equipped for the last 140 years. Through the seasonal collections, iconic reissues and special editions, Levi's® Vintage Clothing relive the treasured history and offer timeless products to discerning connoisseurs.
Safely preserved in a vault deep inside the Levi's® office in San Francisco lies an archive of over 20,000 rare examples of Levi’s clothing and artefacts, dating back as early as 1873.
Kept at an even temperature and wrapped in unbleached cotton, these delicate specimens are carefully protected by the Levi’s® historian. Each season, the Levi's® Vintage Clothing team pores through the archives with white-gloved hands, uncovering the secrets of the past and then bringing them back into the world through faithful reproductions that are as fresh as they were back then.
