The Levi's 501® jeans in a new silhouette

Get the skinny

Slimmer, sleeker, sexier

Although Levi's has always had its place in the fashion world, there's no doubt that the original denim maestro has been enjoying somewhat of a bump up in recent days. With the power of fashion's cool kids (Vetements, Off-White and the crew) re-purposing their jeans, the style set has since adopted the iconic tan and red tag as an indication of their street cred.

"People have been altering their vintage 501® jeans for a snug, skinnier fit for years, so we followed that as inspiration and created a vintage-looking 501® Skinny," said head of design, Jonathan Cheung. Retaining the orginal button fly but subtly lowering its rise, these new stovepipes come in non and low-stretch denim — retaining the 501
®'s classic, crisp fit.  

The Levi's 501 Skinny is available in stores from March 2017. Prices start from $119.90.
