The Levi’s(R) Brand Pays Homage to Its Workwear Roots With the Launch of Levi’s Workshops

Interactive Workshops Open Doors in San Francisco this July and New York City later this Fall

SAN FRANCISCO, July 6 /PRNewswire/ — Since its inception in 1873 as one of the original purveyors of American workwear, the Levi’s® brand has been the uniform of choice for great American pioneers.  Levi’s® jeans have been worn by the craftsmen, laborers and artisans who helped define the cultural landscape in America and have shaped the energy and events of our times.  This week, the Levi’s® brand celebrates a new generation of pioneers and creative communities across the country with the launch of Levi’s® Workshops.  Taking a new, innovative approach to integrating community involvement with retailing, the first Levi’s® Workshop debuts this week in San Francisco followed by a second expression of the program later this fall in New York City.  The Levi’s® Workshops will be multi-use spaces, featuring a functional workshop, community event space and retail storefront.  Each Workshop is designed to focus on a specific craft including printmaking in the San Francisco Workshop and photography in the New York City shop.

The Levi’s® Workshops will serve as community-based extensions of the brand’s Go Forth marketing campaign, paying homage to the principles of hard work and civic engagement. Central to the Workshop program will be collaborations with recognized pioneers from each community.  For eight weeks, each Levi’s® Workshop will open its doors to the general public and host a range of interactive demonstrations, educational programming and events.

Ever more deets, after the jump

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

What do you think about the right hand of Golden Gate Yacht Club Commodore(?!) Marcus Young as he ponders The Future? (No, he’s not wearing a glove or nothing.)

Maybe he was coding at the time and then got taken to the E.R. right after this photo was shot?
