Levi’s® classic 501® jean, world’s most iconic denim, marks 144th year

It has been more than a century since the iconic Levi’s® brand came up with the original blue jean that changed fashion forever. To this day, however, Levi’s® classic 501® jean remains to be not only the most popular but also the most valuable piece of clothing for men and women.

In fact, no less than TIME magazine in 2000 named the 501® jean as the “fashion item of the 20th century,” edging out the miniskirt and the little black dress.

Levi’s® 501® jean was born 144 years ago, when Levi Strauss and Nevada tailor Jacob Davis partnered in 1873 for the first riveted pockets on men’s pants. The number 501® was assigned to the world-renowned “copper riveted waist overalls” as lot numbers were then used to classify products made by Levi’s®.

The classic Arcuate design on the back pockets of the 501® jeans was registered a trademark in 1943 and remains to be the oldest one still in use today. In 1964, a 501® pair entered the Permanent Collections of Smithsonian Institution. 

"Despicable Me 3" Super-Villain is Former '80s Child Star

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's new comedy adventure Despicable Me 3 features a new addition to the franchise: Balthazar Bratt, a formidable super-villain who has been plotting to destroy Hollywood after his TV show was canceled.

Once mocked and shunned after his TV series was canceled—due to his quick onset of puberty—Bratt has become obsessed with everything from his glory days. Now embodying his former role’s villainous traits, Bratt surrounds himself with everything ’80s—re-creating the show’s gadgets and vehicles for plotting his revenge.

In classic Illumination fashion, the character is just as defined by his Machiavellian schemes as he is his ridiculousness. “Balthazar Bratt has taken on this child-actor persona as his villain persona,” says cast member Steve Carell who provides the voices of brothers Gru and Dru. “There is also a silly madness to him, and he uses ’80s components as a part of his villainy. The bubble gum he chews become an extremely effective weapon, he dresses in a purple outfit with padded shoulders and parachute pants, and he dispatches people with dance fights.”

Nick Robinson Ignites Sheltered Girl's Desire to Risk "Everything"

A burgeoning actor who is solidifying his status as the next young leading man, Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) now stars as Olly Bright as the brooding boy-next-door in Warner Bros. Pictures' new romantic drama Everything, Everything (in Philippine cinemas June 21, 2017).

Based on the bestselling book of the same name by Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything tells the unlikely love story of Maddy (Amandla Sternberg), a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, Maddy and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.

“I felt like this was something I hadn’t seen before, that Nicola was a new voice in the world of YA literature,” Robinson says. “I’ve done some work in that genre, but this felt like a really fresh take on it, very original.”

"Despicable Me 3" Characters Amplify Their Lovable Nature

Illumination Entertainment CEO Chris Meledandri believes that “when we leave the movie theater, it is the relationship with the film’s characters that determines how that film will live on in our imaginations.”

The franchise's beloved characters once again return for another memorable story on family, as they are joined by new characters for a richer, funnier tale.
