For SS16 Levi’s® Vintage Clothing looks back to their baseball connections.
LEVI’S® history with baseball dates far back to the company’s early days when they founded their own team called the Levi Strauss and Co. Base Ball Club. Around 1909, the team’s name was changed to “Elesco” which was a play on the company’s LS&Co. initials. Just as baseball was hitting its stride as a popular American sport in the 1920s, Levi’s launched its “Homerun” line of youth wear, which featured a baseball diamond on its woven label.
This season Levi’s® Vintage Clothing pays tribute to the Elesco team and the Homerun label by reproducing some of the most iconic pieces from the brand’s long history in sportswear.
