Denim Underground


This pair of Levis 201's from the 1890's were recovered from a mine in the Mohave Desert, California, covered in candlewax, presumably from the miners candle as he worked away underground. They just went out at US $36, 099.00 on ebay. Seen first on Reference Library.
* Apparently these went to a private Japanese collector.
