Levi's Book (Catalog), Spring-Summer 1989 James Dean 1

Levi's Book (Catalog), Spring-Summer 1989 James Dean 2
James Dean

James Dean is used as the official mascot.

Speaking of James Dean, “Lee101”

I think he also wore Levi’s, but there aren’t many left in his photo.

Jeans = James Dean at that time
James Dean = Cool

It was probably one of the sales strategies.

Levi’s doesn’t use James Dean these days.

That’s probably because James Dean’s favorite jeans were widely known as “Lee101”.

The photos in the Levi’s Book also use only the photos of the face and upper body.

Postscript
By the way, the jeans that James Dean wore are “Lee101”
The “Lee101” is made in 1952.

Jeans from the 1950s have a wide silhouette.
It’s the same for Levi’s and Lee.

It was resized to a slim silhouette.
It seems that resizing was popular among young people at that time.

The current James Dean replica is the silhouette of when it is resized.

Levi's Book (Catalog), Spring-Summer 1989 USLevi's 505 and Livi's502xx
USLevi’s 505-02 and Livi’s502-xx

There is US Levi’s 505.

Now, there are skinny etc. and Levi’s 505 is a regular straight.
It has a slightly more relaxed fit than Levi’s 501.

However, the Levi’s 505 was originally a tapered straight silhouette with the hem of 501 shrunk down.

Some tall and slender people prefer to wear Levi’s 505 instead of Levi’s 501.

It was as popular as Levi’s 501.

Levi's Book (Catalog), Spring-Summer 1989 Washed Levi's

At that time, used processing had not progressed yet.
There were “stone wash” etc., but most of them are flat-fade washed jeans.
