Levi’s Made & Crafted‘s new Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook showcases a lineup of the label’s most premium goods for this season; each piece is made by artisens in Japan.

Levi’s new collection elevates the look and materials of classic American denim while staying true to its heritage — most of the refinement is nuanced and silhouettes still retain their traditional aesthetic. The textiles that make up this season’s lineup were developed by Kaihara mill in Japan, delicately hand-treated by craftsmen in Levi’s SAAB factory — special dyes, subtle distresses and fades — and sewn at the SALTIE factory. Garments like the TYPE III denim jacket, 502 standard tapered jeans, 512 slim tapered jeans and 514 straight jeans are but a few staples that have been refined. The 511 slim jeans, for example, includes Levi’s iconic double chevron motif at the back pocket in a light fade as opposed to the usual gold thread. This detail becomes more apparent over time after extended wear. Each piece in the collection comes with a woven black leather patch that features a tiny red sun motif just under the debossed logo.

Levi’s Made & Crafted’s FW20 collection is currently available on Levi’s website, ranging from $115 – $245 USD.

In case you missed it, soaring online sales have boosted Levi’s’ Q3 2020 financial results.
