Levi's X Opening Ceremony

If you've lost touch with your roots, it sometimes takes an outsider to help put you back in touch, but not The Outsiders, because frankly, Ralph Macchio isn't going to help anything. Bringin' Levi's back to the sticks, Opening Ceremony.

After shunning its humble farm n' workwear beginnings by putting out slick urban gear for a hella long time, Levi's has enlisted the aid of NY's Opening Ceremony to keep themselves honest, with a nice corduroy collab that channels Upstate NY's farmlands, but with more style, and less potential for making out with someone with the same last name. The stable boy steez is born out best in a loose fitting, one pocket-having shirt-jacket of medium-girth and buttery soft cord (which the whole collection's cut from), and a short-cut, throwback jacket that shouts out Levi's classic denim numbers that were all the rage in the 60s, along with doing drugs and taking them off. Then there's a slimmer, higher-waisted re-imagining of Levi's old 505s (which come in faded hues of lavender/curry/Nantucket-ish red), and a bevy of similarly snug cutoff shorts that fall above the knee, since the baggy board shorts look's been out since that SoCal dude got pitted, soooo pitted.

While the gear drops in-store tomorrow, Saturday marks the opening of the Opening Ceremony pop-up within Levi's, where you can also nab select pieces from their own current collection, e.g., overcoats and desert boots, helping to put you back in touch with your roots, or at least go outside.
