BEAMS is traditionally well known for putting their own contemporary Japanese finishes on traditional Americana, a reputation that sets the stage perfectly for their recent collaboration with iconic American denim brand Levi’s. The collaboration features a BEAMS update of the Slim/Straight Levi’s 513, an iconic classic from the Levi’s collection. The update maintains the overall feel and general fit of the jean while tapering the cut down slightly and tweaking some of the smaller details in this classic 5 pocket jean.
BEAMS feel particular pride in the moderate inseam of the jean, maintaining the moderately tapered characteristic 513 fit. They also appear to have enjoyed the back design, highlighting the vertical arrangement of the pocket which contour nicely around the hip and look visually quite clean. Further, there’s an elegantly designed collaborative patch spinning off of the traditional Levi’s patch to include the BEAMS title. The jean will be releasing this fall in both a rinsed indigo denim and a black denim for around $130, or ¥12,600.
