Americana. The word can be confusing these days– does it have to do with patriotism? Tradition? Or just locality? For a long time we all felt confident in our instinct that Levi’s=America, but the brand then went the way of so many others and its American heritage became nothing more than a story on a hangtag. But something in us still stirs when you pick up a pair of Levi’s–- because you can feel what was once there, even if it is now shrouded in disappointment. Well. Despair no more–or rather, feel guilty no more as you continue to yearn for the Levi’s fit of yesteryear– because Oliver Harkness and the Quality Mending Co. are here to make you feel better. Their “Highrider” jeans are modeled after vintage Levi’s 505s (and created by a guy who has been in the vintage biz since 1989) but produced in the US of A, with Cone Mills denim and findings from NC and KY. So the question won’t be, “American?”– instead, you’ll just ask yourself how you ever lived without them. Get them here.
