Outfit Of The Day – The Levi’s 501 Day Outfit

Unlike the regular Streetwear Fit, this one focusses on some of the customizations I got done at the Levi’s Tailor Shop on 501 Day last weekend. I always stay true to my love for sneakers, and the only brand of jeans I allow in my rotation at the moment is Levi’s. I had spoken about mixing streetwear with Levi’s 501 jeans in the past and also about how Levi’s makes the best jeans for sneakerheads. That should tell you that I have had a long-term relationship with the brand.

Although I must let you know that my love for Levi’s began back when I was in school. And although I still own the pair from 90s, my love for the brand was reinitiated when they introduced the Levi’s 501 CT into the market. You can read about it here.

I teamed my basic Levi’s tee and the Levi’s 501 Classic Fit Jeans with a pair of Acronym Nike Air Force kicks from the AF100 pack of 2017. I choose a nice white non-fussy sneaker for the look which is very easy. The pop of red on my Vetements socks was meant to balance with the print on my tee which is something I believe in. It also is a good conversation starter, both pleasant and ridiculous.

While I have always attended the birthday of the Blue Jean every year without fail, this time was different. Stylabs, where I work as Creative Director at the moment, strategically partnered with Levi’s India to provide services like customization of fit and look to jeans and detailing like embroidery. I wasn’t there as a “blogger/influencer” this time, but as a member of the Tailor Shop, interacting with visitors and guiding them with options to make their 501s personal.

The Levi’s Tailor Shop will be popping up at several cities/locations across India. Keep an eye out and when you see us, come get your Levi’s customized.

Last year, I traveled from Bangalore to attend the 501 Day, which you can read about here.
