Saluting the late king of jeans

Would Alexander Graham Bell approve of the iPhone? Would horseless-carriage inventor Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot be a NASCAR nut? What would synthetic-rubber godfather Sergei Vasiljevich Lebedev make of the Arizona FetishBall?

We can only wonder what Levi Strauss’ reaction would be to a stick-figure model wearing painted-on Stella McCartneys, but we can find out lots of other cool stuff about the late king of blue jeans in the “Durable Denim Design” lecture by Levi Strauss & Co. historian Lynn Downey, who’ll also show off some prime collectibles from the Strauss archives.
