The “XX”, The Oldest Known Pair of Levi’s Jeans
1879
United States
We keep the oldest pair of blue jeans in the world in a fireproof safe in our archive.
They date to about 1879. We call them XX, a reference to the top-of-the-line denim we used. There are knee marks in several places, suggesting they were worn by more than one person.

Hannibal, 36
“I'm wearing a black beret, a spike chocker, thrifted jacket from L Train Vintage with Carhartt work pants. I am inspired by Black Punk aesthetics, the everyday working person, the strong African American History with the beret inspired by the Black Panthers plus some punk style like Jimi Hendrix.”

As a Woodland Ranger, I need complete waterproof protection so that I can traverse the various ponds, streams, marshes and bogs.

The Calico Mine Jeans
1890
As a teenager living in San Gabriel, California in the late 1940s, Barbara Hunter Kepon explored the Calico Mine while camping one weekend. She discovered a room filled with jeans and took the best pair of the bunch. She patched them and wore them for a time until she noticed something interesting on the pocket and wrote to [Levi Strauss & Co.]
As Barbara shared:
We went into the mine as far as we could without any flashlights. And as I was walking along the side, I felt cold air hit my foot. I got down on my hands and knees and opened up a little opening, and inside was a small room and it was full of jeans that had been torn and abandoned there by the miners …
I picked out the best looking pair of jeans in that pile and took them home because it was fashionable for young girls to wear jeans. I went home, washed them and wore them all the time, until one day I happened to notice letters on the back of the pocket … something about the jeans being made for over 17 years . . .
I realized that’s a lot longer than recently and so I wrote a letter to Levi’s and told them my story. I asked if they wanted me to send the jeans to them, and so I did. And the company then sent me two new pair of jeans.
