Levi’s Vintage Clothing as teamed up with Shopbop to relaunch their Orange Tab line. The line was originally launched in 1969 as Levi’s wanted to appeal to youth with a lower price point. The initial styles included skinny and slim fits which were in style at the time. In an effort to keep costs down, the line was created using Line 8 manufacturing method, which is a streamlined method, resulting in styles with 7 belt loops, no rivets, signature back patch, and an orange Levi’s tab.
Orange Tab only released styles into the 70s, so the limited supply quickly made them collectors items. Denim samples were analyzed to match the same fabric as the original pairs and they are being reproduced using the same Line 8 manufacturing methods in the United States. Prices start at $215 and pieces are available for purchase now. You can shop the collection on Shopbop.com.
Kanye West was spotted getting out of his car in Paris late last month. The rapper wore his custom Levi’s 514 jeans with a tie-dye shirt and some fringed sneakers. He then finished it off with a parka.
I am still waiting for the day that Levi’s reproduces these jeans in their 511 cut. They are one of the coolest washes that I have seen. I am also happy to see that Kanye is in a tie-dye shirt because I have been wanting one for a few months and this means that they’ll be a lot easier to find now. Or I could finally attempt making it myself. You can click here to purchase Levi’s from their website.

A little while ago, Elisabeth Moss and Connie Britton co-hosted a Pre Emmy dinner at the Levi’s Haus in Los Angeles, California. The dinner celebrated Elisabeth’s nominations for Mad Men and Top Of The Lake and Connie’s for Nashville. Fellow nominee attendees included Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) while the other guests included Caitlin FitzGerald, Gay Ribisi, Marley Shelton, and more.
The dinner looked like it was wonderful. LA’s hottest new husband and wife duo, Angela Hernandez and Rob Lawson of Flores restaurant, cooked a delicious five-course meal for everyone. You can see the photos from the dinner below, including the setting and of course the celebs. Both Elisabeth and Connie wore a Levi’s denim jacket for the evening over dresses. What do you think of both of their looks?
Aaron Paul and his wife were photographed while enjoying the day out at Disneyland. Did anyone catch last Sunday’s episode of Breaking Bad? I think it was one of the best episodes yet!
While at Disneyland, Aaron wore a double denim outfit, with a pair of jeans and a Levi’s denim jacket. I feel as though the double denim trend is catching on more and more with guys and we’ve been seeing more male celebrities wearing the look. You can buy Levi’s jeans online from Levis.com.
