"To create this unique garment, Levi'sÂ® Vintage Clothing took a men's size 40 1915 501Â® jean and customized it for women, with a distinctive wide leg silhouette and beautiful back pocket pleats. The first 1915 501Â® Jean was produced in collaboration with Cone Mills Denim of North Carolina. The story of Cone Denim began in 1891, when two brothers founded the Cone Export & Commission Company. By 1905, they established the White Oak Millâ€”named after a 200-year-old tree on its groundsâ€”that would set the standard for quality denim. Today, White Oak retains this status and continues to produce its renowned fabric. Regarded as a stronghold of textile history, it remains an endless inspiration and integral resource for archives. In 1915, Cone Denim and Levi Strauss & Co. struck a historic agreement, and Cone was granted the exclusive right to manufacture Levi'sÂ® proprietary Shrink-to-FitTM denim for all 501Â® Jeans. This gentleman's agreement, still in place today, became known as ""The Golden Handshake."" Over a century later, we are still unearthing archival details about fabrics we've developed throughout our history with Cone Denim. The 1915 501Â® Jean celebrates this heritageâ€”reproducing the Cone fabric and original 1915 Levi'sÂ® fit, and carrying the secrets of a 100-year partnership within its warp and weft. This iconic garment is crafted from selvedge denimâ€”a Cone Mills specialty. Levi's 1915 501 Customized Vintage Jeans - Women's 24 - Belle. Levi's Official Site."
