We’ve got some information on two special pairs of Levi’s 501XX coming in July. They’ll pull from two vintage finds from the Levi’s archive – the “Spur Bites” and the “Barnyard” (both purchased by the Levi’s archive brand back in 1997 and 1998 respectively) . A good deal of facts are known on both pairs. First and foremost they were both assembled at the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company in Manchester, New Hampshire from 9oz denim sometime between 1890 and 1901. They’re names come from clues on the denim themselves.
So what can we expect? We’re assuming some patchwork vintage look as present on the original pairs. We’re also told Denimtech in Los Angeles will be working on these for Levi’s. We hope to have some photos soon.
For now some more looks at the Levi’s 501XX Spur Bites and Barnyard Jeans after the click.
