Mankind’s obsession with living above the clouds captured imaginations in the 1930s. The completion of the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, and the Futurama Exhibit at New York’s World Fair, presented America with a tangible model for the future. These pioneers played a significant role in shaping modern America and the nation’s image of itself as innovators—leading them into the future. People travelled far and wide to work on these projects—taking their Levi’s® work wear from its rural home, putting it to work building a Metropolis.
This season Levi’s® Vintage Clothing pays tribute to the visionaries who dreamed up cityscapes and the hardworking men who made them a reality.
