For Sale: Vintage Levi’s, Worn Only a Couple of Times, Bought in 1893

If you’ve got an extra $100,000 sitting around you may be interested in some very vintage Levi’s currently up for auction. Dated at around 1893, these essentially brand new jeans belonged to Solomon Warner, who apparently only wore them only a handful of times before storing them away.

Unlike modern Levi’s this 123 year-old pair of work pants has hand-hammered rivets and single stitching throughout – also notice that sweet selvedge waist band. There aren’t any belt loops to speak of and they only have one back pocket, which might be deal-breaker to some, but when you consider the history behind these jeans you might be able to justify the purchase. Or at least fantasize about it.

The jeans go up for auction this Saturday in Lisbon Falls, Maine.
