In 1915 Cone became a Levi Strauss & Co. supplier, a relationship that has lasted through the twentieth century. The 1915 XX501 Jean Cone Mills Collaboration is a celebration of the origins of this long term partnership. By staying true to the original fabric and fit, the rich history of this denim comes back to life. The 1915 fit is based on an archive jean called ‘Homer’ (named after the original owner). It is a lightweight 11oz denim made especially for Levi’s. Design details include 2 back pockets with exposed rivets, a cinch, suspender buttons, two horse leather patch, crotch rivet and single needle arcuate. The celebratory package also includes a shoulder bag.
