The Fashionistas Spill Their Latest Denim Secret

Levi Strauss & Co.
November 3, 2014

The Wall Street Journal recently asked an important question: Is this the beginning of the end for skinny jeans? The question was sparked by a “new” style of jeans — inspired by our classic 501s — that are finding their way  into the closets of fashionable women around the globe.

WSJ explores the growing popularity of the high-waisted, faded, and decidedly un-skinny style, and talked to some 501 fanatics about how they’re scoring — or recreating — the classic vintage look.

Less-than-thrilled by the prospect of  scouring endless racks of vintage denim to find the perfect pair? Help is on the way. In January, Levi’s will introduce the 501CT, a take on the classic style, but with a slightly narrow — not  skinny — leg.
