Levis from 70 years ago for only $3,000


Brooks Brothers label, plus cinch-back detailing, no suspender buttons, Capital E on the tag, arcuate without a diamond crossover and covered back pocket rivets date these 501s as late 1930s to early 1940s.... Eiji wouldn’t (or couldn’t) offer up an exact price, but I did get him to admit that you would need at least $3000 to take these home. -- Levi’s x Brooks Brothers c.1937 | A Continuous Lean.

Your Say

I do not think that Brooks Brothers sold Levis 70 years ago. Heck, I don't think I saw them in the Madison Avenue Store when I shopped there 35 years ago.

You can now puddle your jeans down on the ground in style, without having to show your undergarments.

Have to remember to wash these on the delicate cycle, then.
