After 112 years in operation, Cone Mills White Oak closed its doors in 2017, bringing an end to a long-standing partnership between Levi’s® and the North Carolina mill. Cone Mills was one of the last producers of American selvedge denim and had been supplying Levi’s® with its XX 501® selvedge denim since back when Woodrow Wilson was in office (1913, give or a take a few years).

To celebrate the end of an era, Levi's Vintage Clothing created two limited-edition pieces made from White Oak® denim: a 1955 Levi’s® 501® Jean and a 1953 Type II Trucker Jacket. Both styles feature six different Shrink-To-Fit fabrics recreated just for us by the mill. This is the first and the last time all six fabrics are included in a single garment — and in a limited run of 150 of each piece.

As an extra tribute, all White Oak 501 Jeans and every White Oak 1953 Type II Trucker Jackets will include a special commemorative box made out of white oak wood.

NOTE: Due to the handmade and small-batch nature of our products, slight sizing variation may occur.
