WHAT’S THE BEST TIME YOU’VE HAD IN LEVI’S®?

Jeans just seem to feel better in Texas. I was at a little music festival
in Marfa and I was enjoying myself a little too much. I went back
to my tent and just listened to the band. It was just about perfect.
Then I passed out but I woke up happy.

WRITE ON STYLE

Style stakes were raised to the roof at the Levi’s® Haus in LA recently,
when author and sartorial renaissance man David Coggins joined us
to celebrate the launch of his new book, Men and Style.

We sat down with the man himself to find out more about the role
Levi’s® denim has played in his personal styling journey.

DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR
FIRST PAIR OF LEVI’S®?

I would get a pair of jeans right before the school
year started. I remember the red Levi’s® tag on the
back pocket. Levi’s® was the only brand we
ever got so for a while I thought all jeans were
supposed to have that red tag.

YOU’VE BROUGHT ALONG YOUR VINTAGE
LEVI’S® WESTERN SHIRT. WHAT MAKES
IT SUCH A FAVORITE?

This is an old Orange Tab shirt that I got in Austin.
I love the way the big collar stands up and the fact
that there’s a little paint on it.

WHICH THREE WORDS
DESCRIBE YOU BEST?

Three words that describe me. That’s tough
of course. I’d like to think that I’m perceptive,
discerning and traditional.

But I’m sure some people would disagree!

And A VERY GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.
