Levis Jeans - 5 Most popular Styles + viral video backcam

Updated on March 10, 2011

Levi Strauss or Levis Jeans - Whatever you call them, they are great!

Of course the name Levis is practically synonymous with Jeans. While you may know that much, you might not know what all the different style numbers mean. This hub will explain the five most popular styles Levis 514, Levis 511, Levis 510, Levis 527, and Levis classic 501 Jeans. Focusing on the style is important, as it gives us insight as to how Levis Jeans have remained so popular. Even today, in 2011, Levi Strauss is still a powerhouse brand. This is especially shocking considering Levis was founded in 1853! That's BEFORE the civil war!

Not many companies have been able to remain in business that long. Not only has Levi Strauss managed to be wildly successful this whole time (to the tune of 2008 earnings of close to 4.5 billion), but they have done it in the very fickle world of fashion. The fashion industry is notorious for turning on you at the drop of a hat, so how is it that Levis jeans have stood the test of time while so many others have failed?

With comtemporary styles they have kept people interested in the Levis brand, but furthermore they have some very interesting marketing campaigns - including a recently released video featuring two beautiful women, one of whom has a camera installed in the back of her Levis Jeans. This camera shows the attention she is receiving while walking in front of people.

To be fair, I think this woman would probably get that kind of attention regardless of if she wore Levis Jeans or any other kind of pants, but it's still a very clever video. You can watch it below!  There is also a great banned in the US Levis Commercial which is also really funny!  You can see that below as well.
