This is a pair of Levi's Jeans

We have been reporting about the latest addition to any collector's bookshelf: Jeans of The Old West: A History by Allen Harris last week. Next to that we published about some of the classics in jeans literature over the last couple of months. In addition to these posts I would like to take this opportunity to shine a light on one of my favorite denim-classics that is probably pretty unknown for a lot you: "This is a Pair of Levi's". The book was written by Jill Novack Lynch, Cathleen McDonough and the female denim icon Lynn Downey; the American archivist and historian who has been associated with the Levi's archives for decades. The book is described as "The official history of the Levi's brand" and it contains lovely classic Levi's adds, the brand's history and of course a lot of great Levi's denim classics. Not only because of its size, but merely because of its powerful content this book should be in any of your private collections. Have a look at the preview below and buy one of the last copies available online.
