Levi 527 Bootcut Mens Jeans - Explorer
Levi's 527 - Explorer
Levi Strauss & Co. has been innovating since the birth of the first pair of jeans on May 20th, 1873. One day the wife of a local laborer asked Jacob Davis, a tailor and one of Levi's loyal customers, to make a pair of pants for her husband that wouldn't fall apart. Jacob came up with the idea to put metal rivets at points of strain, like pocket corners and the base of the button fly. Davis collaborated with Levi and soon the first riveted clothing was made and sold. The first pair of 'jeans' were made from traditonal denim, a popular choice of fabric for men's workwear, and within a very short time the jean was a bona fide success.
In 1873, two visionary immigrants turned denim, thread and a little metal into what has become the most popular apparel on earth.
Originally designed to fit over hardwearing boots, the 527 slim boot cut jean is a modern take on a cowboy classic. They feature a lower rise, with a slightly slimmer fit throughout the seat and thigh and a boot cut opening from knee to ankle. With 5 pocket construction, hard wearing material and a boot leg cut, the 527 are a perfect jean for the work environment and for a comfortable casual alternative.
