Levi's 501 Day
On May 20, 1873, Levi’s® invented the blue jean.
145 years later, Levi’s® is celebrating 501® Day with the jean that started it all. From its creation, the original blue jean has been a canvas for self-expression, repurposed in countless ways. With an epic scale Levi’s Tailor shop to customize denim and performances by some of the biggest hip-hop DJs from around the world, join us as we celebrate what is means to be forever original.
#501Day. Invented by us. Reinvented by you.
