At the turn of 2018, one of the US’s last and oldest selvedge denim makers closed its doors, ending the longest-standing partnership in American selvedge denim history. Cone Mills White Oak shut down on December 31, 2017, marking the end of its 112-year operation and its century-long partnership with Levi’s.

To commemorate this legendary denim mill, Levi’s Vintage Clothing has created two unique commemorative pieces, consisting of a 1955 Levi’s 501 jean and a 1953 Type II trucker jacket. Both garments are made from six different Shrink-to-Fit fabrics that span across the 100-year-long shared history between the two companies. This collection will be the first and last time these six different fabrics — recreated by Cone Mills White Oak — join together in one garment.

As limited edition items, both the jeans and the trucker jacket will come encased in a commemorative box constructed of Carolinian White Oak wood. “It’s a way to say thank you for all our beautiful fabrics,” says Levi’s Vintage Clothing Senior Designer Paul O’Neill, “and to celebrate our long history together.”

These two farewell pieces from Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Cone Mills White Oak are now available over at Hudson’s Hill, Unionmade and Canoe Club, retailing at $599 USD per piece. There’s only 150 of each made, so vintage denim enthusiasts should be sure to act fast.

Elsewhere in fashion, Prada joins the chest rig hype with its own nylon harness bag.
