Levi’s Vintage Clothing 2009 Fall/Winter “INSIDE OUT” Collection

As the original creators of riveted denim, Levi’s Vintage Clothing looks to captalize on its unsurpassed pedigree and heritage which is so popular as of late with their “INSIDE OUT” collection.

Inspired by prison life and subsequent movies and events “like Shawshank Redemption and Clint Eastwood’s Escape from Alcatraz, to Johnny Cash’s legendary live concert in the Folsom Prison cafeteria,” the aesthetic is vintage prison issue in form.

For those unaware, denim was the material of choice for institutions before the days of orange jumpsuits and black/white stripes, however despite finishing their time behind bars, denim would continue to serve as a popular choice alongside black beanie hats, hob nailed boots and thick, wool donkey jackets in veritable workwear uniform.

Each garment comes stenciled as a reminder of its inspirations and will hit select Levi’s Vintage Clothing retailers in the near future.
