18 Apr #IOT LEVIS® ORANGE TAB 2017 A DEFS MUCT COLLECT
If the purpose of this space was anything like an over-sharer’s congregation, I would commence ever post with my full name and surname before begging you all to pull chairs and some snacks to bare witness to declarations for my shocking obsession with denim. I could once again on until forever and the after-party, but this here piece is not entirely about that. Today, I share an excitement for the vintage inspired Levi’s® Orange Tab collection which is fittingly all the rage on the social interwebs right now. its not even my birthday, but this treat of a throwback to the 1960’s stands in the running for making my whole year oh-so-awesome. First used on a line of affordable slim-fitting jeans, jackets and shirts, Levi’s® Orange Tab symbolized style and youth during the counterculture of the 1960s. Since then, old school Orange Tabs have become the ultimate score for vintage collectors and denim heads alike. With this drop, the denim brand has remastered some of the Orange Tab faves like 510™ Skinny and new 505™C. Fabrics are based on archival 60’s and ‘70s Orange Tab fabric, but with a bit a stretch for a modern feel. Tops, tees and knits are cut just a bit looser for comfort and ease of movement, while the Orange Tab Work Shirt for Spring 2017 acts as a hybrid of our classic Western and Work Shirts. Meanwhile, the iconic Trucker jacket gets some Orange Tab touches, like the Arcuate and welt pockets. Seriously, what’s not to love here? Also, Hi, My name is Mahlatse James and I am here for this denim story.
