no phoney anything denim.
Inspired by a recent comment from Ryan, which answered my question:
â€œI wonder what Warhol would say about Levisâ€? Here it is from the man himselfâ€¦
From The Philosophy of Andy Warhol by Andy Warhol:
â€œI believe in bluejeans too. The ones made by Levi Strauss are the best-cut, best-looking pair of pants that have ever been designed by anybody. Nobody will ever top the original bluejeans. They canâ€™t be bought old, they have to be bought new and they have to be worn in by the person. To get that look. And they canâ€™t be phoney bleached or phoney anything.â€
Later- â€œI wish I could invent something like bluegeans. Something to be remembered for. Something mass. â€œI want to die with my bluejeans on,â€ I heard myself sayâ€.
SO! I think heâ€™d prefer Leviâ€™s stick to the authenticity theyâ€™re known for, what theyâ€™re good at, and not try to reference him in their products. The kids who â€˜getâ€™ Warhol are wearing their jeans already, and theyâ€™ll probably die with them on.

These 501s are Shrink-To-Fit hard denim. If they fit, I will wear them until they die, or I do.
