Leviâ€™s 1st Standard 10th Blast JeansBy Editor in Fashion on September 30th, 2009 | 1 Comment »
Generally when I see hipster types who’ve spent a little too much time strategically getting paint on their pants as they toil away as artists somewhere deep on the heart of Williamsburg I mean Bushwick, I get a little nauseous and look the other way. Levi’s has a limited edition jean out that saves us commoners from having to go out and buy paint to doctor our own jeans or beg and plead to get a pair from a faux Brooklyn artist friend.
In celebration of the 10th birthday of Leviâ€™s Engineered Jeans, a very limited 99 pairs of hand painted anniversary jeans have been produced, based on the original First Standard fit from 1999.
Each pair have a completely unique hand sprayed finish in a bright colour palatte. The fabricâ€™s a recreation of the denim used in 1999, an innovative mix of cotton and hemp in an intense green-caste indigo shade. Itâ€™s woven on a narrow loom with solid green selvage and finished with 18 carat gold button and rivets caste from original moulds.
These limited edition jeans are presented in an exclusive commemorative box with a matching paint blast finish.
Check them out on oki-ni’s site and in the pics below. There’s only one little catch: they’re already sold out! I have a feeling though if enough people email oki-ni asking about these bad boys, they’ll restock them quicker than you can drip some gesso on your khakis.
