Levi's Vintage Clothing

There's something great about clothing with a past. It validates the wearer in some unspoken way—paying homage to a simpler, genuine time and signaling an appreciation for craftsmanship. But such historical pieces aren't always easy to come by and if you do happen to find a great vintage item (in your size), there's always that telltale smell to deal with. Which is what makes Levi's Vintage Clothing so great—all the history with none of the hassle. We were a tad skeptical at first, but once we got our hands on the stuff, we quickly became believers. Accurate recreations of archival styles, right down to the proper selvage, original tag designs, simple stitching and copper buttons. It's like something you'd find in Japan, only right here at home.

Available at Imogene + Willie, Blackbird and Farinelli's.
