To mark the 150th anniversary of the Levi’s 501, the brand is collaborating with streetwear pioneer and denim aficionado, Nigo to present a collection that will revolve around his personal favorite archival piece – the Hickory Stripe 501 jean. 

The two-part collection offers the Hickory Stripe 501 jeans (S$309.90) and a 557XX Hickory Stripe Trucker Jacket (S$419.90). To stay true to Nigo’s love for rare vintage denim, the entire collection is produced in Japan and utilizes traditional manufacturing techniques. 

The 501 denim will be crafted from 13oz, Shrink-to-Fit hickory stripe selvedge denim, a special for this collection, and will come with classic details like the Levi’s Red tab, button shanks, Two-Horse Pull back patch and stitched arcuate back pockets. To get as close to the archival piece that inspired the 501 jean, it will come with a vintage wash with threads and shanks that match the original piece.

The 557XX Trucker Jacket comes with the same finishes and comes pre-shrunk with specific threads to match the archival pieces. Every piece from the collection will come with a special-edition Levi’s x Nigo 150th anniversary tote bag and co-branded hangtag.

“As a concept, ’The Future is in the Past’ means looking at the past to create for the future. I found the original Hickory Stripe 501® at a vintage store in 1995 and haven’t seen it reproduced since then. Using the past as my reference book, I am honored to bring this archival 501® back during the 150th anniversary,” says NIGO.
