Just wanted to let anyone interested know....

Lynn Downey in New York

East coasters will at long last get a chance to see some important Levi's archive pieces in person. This Saturday, October 11th, Lynn Downey herself will be present to show rare garments like the oldest 501 jeans in the world, pictured above. This pair of "XX" is dated to be from circa 1879. You will have the opportunity to ask all the burning questions and get the official word from Levi's in-house historian who has dedicated a large part of her life to understanding and documenting the company's history.

The event will be held from 2-6PM at Barney's CO-OP in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan and is meant to unveil the new Premium 501. You can expect to geek out on denim history, check out some archive pieces, and score some free t-shirts.

Barneys CO-OP Chelsea
