Equip Yourself For Levi’s Modern Frontier With Three Raw Pieces


When it comes to denim, the first name that no doubt springs to mind is Levi’s®. With 140 years of experience, not only is Levi’s® the oldest denim company in the world, it has also become such an industry bellwether that its very name is thought of as being synonymous with “jeans.”

Throughout its history, Levi’s® has always taken a forward-thinking approach to product. From Levi’s® Red Tab to RED labels, the Commuter Series to the premium XX division—which includes the Levi’s® Vintage Clothing and Made & Crafted collections—their offerings have changed the idea of denim as we know it.

As the company that Levi Strauss founded continues to expand its established lines and create more niche collections, it’s clear that the brand’s goal is to arm today’s creative generation for the modern frontier. In that light, here are our selections for three Levi’s® staples that are timeless, raw, iconic, and wallet-friendly:

501 Original Shrink-to-Fit Jeans


As one of Levi’s® signature and most celebrated pieces, the 501® Original Shrink-To-Fit Jeans are about as classic as it gets. Quite frankly, they are the epitome of raw jeans, and a tried-and-true favorite of denim heads everywhere.

What’s more, as Levi’s® continues to take an environmentally conscious approach to its production, the company has brought the 501® Original Shrink-To-Fit into the fold of the Water<Less program, an initiative whereby 20 percent of the jeans’ material is comprised of recycled plastic bottles.

  • Name: Levi’s 501 Original Shrink-to-Fit Jeans
  • Weight: 12.5 Oz.
  • Fit: Straight leg
  • Starting at: Levi’s for $48.00

Trucker Jacket


Having made it’s debut over fifty years ago, the Trucker Jacket has successfully withstood the test of time and earned it’s reputation as yet another classic Levi’s garment. While it it’s difficult to compare the level of detail and construction to the LVC Type I, Type II, and Type III jackets, the jacket offers offers an iconic and versatile aesthetic without compromising function.

  • Name: Levi’s Trucker Jacket
  • Weight: 12.1 Oz.
  • Fit: Straight
  • Starting at: Levi’s for $78.00

Sawtooth Western Shirt


Although the San Franciscan brand unveiled it’s lighter western wear in the 1940’s, it wasn’t for another decade that we were introduced to the original Sawtooth Western Shirt. Named after the saw blade shape on the pocket flaps, this particular Western Shirt has evolved quite a bit since it’s rugged days on the ranch and now takes on a more slim, modern fit. Through all iterations, however, it’s still held it’s place as one of Levi’s pioneering staples.

  • Name: Levi’s Sawtooth Western Shirt
  • Weight: 3.6 Oz.
  • Fit: Slim
  • Starting at: Levi’s for $78.00
