Yesterday Levi’s Made & Crafted opened up a pop-up shop in Brooklyn’s Smith + Butler, a shop with a penchant for housing pop-up collections of covetable clothing and jewelry. Right now the premium Made & Crafted spring ’12 line is on display, featuring looks inspired by ’60s Levi’s catalogues. The shop is set to stay open until summer 2012, so take advantage!

Park & Bond points out some crucial details in the Levi’s Made & Crafted Tack Slim Leg Jeans that make them contemporary and fresh. A modern mesh of two 1960s era pairs of Levi’s jeans (the 606 from 1966, and the 505 from 1967), the denim descendent features details like the square-shaped wasit, 12-oz Japanese selvedge denim fabrication, four different color threads in the stitching, a blue Levi’s tab (not red, as usual), and more. Click through for a very up close look at these classic men’s denim jeans.

The Levi’s Made & Crafted Fall Winter 2011 Collection has a classic Americana feel to it, but gives us some new styles and silhouettes to keep the look fresh. Baggy jeans may have had a bad rep in the past, but they get a makeover with the denim merchant worker pants. By cuffing them above boots, your legs won’t be swallowed up by the material and you also will have an extremely comfortable fit. Of course there are also some skinny jeans thrown in there, with the added bonus of different washes and a high-waisted style. While the full-length denim coveralls resemble a painter’s getup a bit too much for us, the short coveralls are really cute and can be worn throughout the year by pairing them with legwarmers when it’s cold out. This division of Levi’s handles their more higher-end products, so even though you may have to throw in some extra $$, this collection can stay in your closet year round which definitely makes it worth it.
