You have stumbled across Never Outta Style, the one and only Levi's Fanlisting approved by thefanlistings.org. Levi's clothes rock. They're comfortable, they're rugged, they're durable, they're sexy, they're classic, and they're "never outta style"! Come join if you are a fan too!
This fanlisting was originally owned by Sasha (*glompage*) who has allowed me to adopt it. Most of the codes are hers. The list is now owned by Vianne (ç'est moi) and is part of slovenly-artist[dot]net and Strange Obsessions.

About The Fanlisting
A fanlisting is a place for all fans of a particular show, movie, actor, actress, singer, etc. to come together and build the biggest listing of people from all around the world who are fans of that subject. :) For more information and more fanlistings to join, check out the official site, http://thefanlistings.org. Joining a fanlisting is free, and besides putting up a link back if you join with a website, nothing else is required of you.
Levi Strauss & Co. is the manifacturer of the famous Levi's jeans and casual wear. Their Levi's 501 are the best selling range of jeans ever and spans more than five generations of American and global culture. As a company, they've seen the world go from horse drawn carriages to the electric car, from the chaos of war to space, peace, independence and freedom, and from the telegraph to speed of light Internet communications.
In 2003, Levi Strauss & Co. will be 150 years old! They can proudly say that LS&CO. makes the only garment created in the 19th century that is still worn today. And they still have the same youthful, attitude. As you think of everything that Levi's has built, all the stores, the clothes, the brand, stop a moment to think about a young, immigrant merchant named Levi Strauss, who started it all. Love Levi's too? Come join!
There are just one or two little rules you should read before joining. Not many. Not tough.
1.) You must be a fan of Levi's clothing. Otherwise you're in the wrong place.
2.) When joining, you must supply:
- Your first name or nickname (surname not needed)
- Your country (if in the U.K., please specify.)
- A valid e-mail address.
3.) You don't have to have a website to join, but if you do and want it listed here, please place a code on your site and link back here. Mind you...
4.) I reserve the right to decide whether I'll list your site. If the site contains hate, racism, porn, violence, &c., I can tell you right now that I will not be listing it. I'll still list your name, though.
5.) Help me keep the list up-to-date by using the update form or e-mailing me with any changes.
That's it. Rules done.

- Levi's 501 jeans are the original Shrink-To-Fit, button-fly blue jeans first created in the 1800s. 501 jeans are the oldest and best selling product of Levi Strauss & Co. The number 501 was assigned to the jeans around 1890.
- Levi Strauss & Co. currently makes 501 jeans in approximately 108 sizes and 20 finishes/fabrics.
- A typical pair of Levi's 501 jeans takes about 1 3/4 yards of denim, 213 yards of thread, five buttons and six rivets.
- There are 37 separate sewing operations involved in making a single pair of Levi's 501 jeans.
- The red Tab Device was created in 1936 to help identify Levi's 501 jeans from a distance.
- Until 1960, Levi's 501 jeans were called "waist overalls."
- One bolt of denim weighs approximately a quarter of a ton. Cutters use an electric saw to cut through 120 layers of cloth at one time. About 60 pairs of jeans can be cut from one bolt of fabric.
- The double row of stitching on the back pockets - known as the Arcuate stitching design - is the oldest apparel trademark still in use today. It was first used in 1873. During World War II, the Arcuate stitching design was painted on the pockets due to government rationing of essential items such as thread.
- Rivets were first used on 501 jeans in 1873 because miners complained that their pockets ripped under the weight of ore samples. The early jeans had rivets on the front and back pockets. Rear rivets were covered beginning in 1937 because of complaints that the rivets scratched school desk chairs and saddles. Since 1967, reinforced stitching has replaced the back pocket rivets.
