Product
The image shown above represents a pair of the 501® Blue Jean Lady Levi’s® which was introduced for the first time in 1934.

The Levi’s® jeans are recognisable thanks to an iconic label which is visibly attached. The ‘’The Two Horse Trademark’’ label, located at the top right, was introduced in 1886 and symbolizes the strength of the clothing in the face of competition. The famous Red Tab shown on the right pocket was used for the first time in 1936 on the 501® jeans to differentiate their product from their competition (Levi Strauss & Co., 2017).
