Straight from the Levi’s Eureka Lab in San Francisco comes a limited edition set of Levi’s 501 Denim Shorts. Released in honor of festival season, the shorts were handpicked from a selection of vintage 501s – made in the USA, between the years of 1984 and 1998, if you want to get scientific about it. Which is, coincidentally, how the Eureka team approached the project. Each artfully worn-in pair was cut apart, re-worked, distressed and tagged with a limited edition 1/100 number. The resulting pair of shorts, or their similar vintage version available online, are guaranteed to be the hero piece you wear all summer. Trust us.
“Our Tailorshop at our Eureka innovation lab right here in San Francisco breathes new life in them by customizing each pair. They are ready to find a new owner and begin another adventure. These are customized 501s, Made in the USA and re-Made in San Francisco. That’s pretty special” – Jonathan Cheung, Levi’s Head of Global Design.
