Levi’s Vintage Clothing Pays Homage to 100 Years with Cone Mills

LVC’s new seasonal collection is titled “The Golden Handsake,” named after the agreement made by the gentlemen at Levi’s and Cone Mills back in 1915. That’s when the two settled that the factory would have exclusive rights to manufacture the denim label’s proprietary Shrink-to-FitTM denim for the production of the iconic Levi’s 501. Cone Mills is still the exclusive manufacturer of the legendary style, which is made in its White Oak, Greensboro facility, just like 100 years ago. The original 501 has been replicated for Levi’s Vintage Clothing’s new Fall/Winter 2015 collection, alongside other reproductions such as a men’s sack coat from the brand’s 1915 catalog.

 

LVC is currently available in two styles for AW15 within the store.
