Levi Jeans & Automation

A team of designers took weeks to figure out exactly where to fade the indigo and position the tears for the most authentic vintage look. Then, factory workers used sandpaper and harsh chemicals to make it look properly worn in. The jeans were probably washed for hours so that the blue color would fade out–even though those dyes would inevitably end up polluting the groundwater. It could take weeks for a team of Levi designers to figure out exactly where to fade the indigo and position the tears for the most authentic vintage look.

They now have a new laser technology that will, in a snap, do what now takes much longer. The breakthrough uses infrared light to etch off a very fine layer of the indigo and cotton from a pair of jeans, creating the same kind of faded finishes and tears in 90 seconds flat.

This new tech, which Sights will automate many new aspects of the company’s denim-making process, from the design and prototyping to the manufacturing, to catering to consumer demand.

The company employs 13,500 workers around the world—not including those that work in third-party factories. Levi’s jeans are sold at 50,000 retailers in 110 countries. This will will mean retraining hundreds of people and changing the time it takes to get products to stores. But by introducing these laser-wielding robots into Levi’s factories around the world, it has the potential to eliminate many repetitive, dangerous tasks that are an everyday part of the job for denim workers.

Between 80 and 100 billion never-worn garments are sent to landfills globally every year. This new technology will shift our model from ‘sell what you make’ to ‘make what you sell,’ which will absolutely improve their overall inventory health.

Russia’s Counterfeit Culture


It appears that Russia has a thriving market for fake street wear. Russia’s fragile economy, international sanctions and low wages has kept demand for fakes alive and well.

Dutch Police Fashion Program

Dutch Police of Rotterdam will soon be able to confiscate your clothes if you can’t prove that you legally paid for them.

The new measure is geared toward young men in the designer or expensive-looking clothes that the police have reason to believe were stolen or bought using funds from criminal activities. They plan to undress them on the street.

Signals —-These are young people with no income, sometimes even debts from a previous conviction, but also wear an outfit that exceeds 1500 euros.

It’s not clear how police will decide if you bought your clothes legally. Nor is it clear whether the squad will be trained to spot rare Supreme, or if they’ll just be looking out for young men flexing a Rolex or a Gucci belt.

According to a spokesperson from the Rotterdam police, the program will only be brought in to Rotterdam West and is intended to only target a small group of men aged 16-30 who are already involved in crime. However, many residents have already expressed concerns about the city’s plans.

Some of the young interviewed cited worries about racial profiling, increased tensions with the police, and a reluctance to change how they dress. As one of our interviewees eloquently put it, “It’s not a crime if you are wearing a KILLER look.

The police must be fashion conscious

What they’re looking for :with this winter weather – for example – jackets from the Canada Goose and Woolrich brands of around 1,000 euros are particularly popular.

Apple’s 1990 Sneakers Going For $30,000. Do You Own A Pair?

When Apple launched its first color desktop computer, in 1990, the tech giant also created a prototype pair of sneakers with its signature rainbow logo.

They were first sold to a lucky Apple employee some time in the mid-’90s, according to BitRebels.  They later sold for only $79 on eBay  back in 2007.

In the years that followed, the whereabouts of the shoes were unknown — until a friend of Leon Benrimon, director of modern and contemporary art at Heritage Auctions, found them at a garage sale in San Francisco.

Now, Heritage Auctions is auctioning off the pair at its Beverly Hills location. Bidding will begin at 11 am on June 11, and the sneakers are expected to go for at least $30,000. The starting bid will be $15,000. The Adidas sneakers, size 9 and a half, are made from the typical white leather material of the times. They feature Apple’s logo on the tongue and on the side. The soles are made from rubber that supposedly doesn’t leave skid marks.


Using Algorithms To Create That Perfest Tilored Suit



The company Black Tux unveiled a new and improved fit algorithm that claims to accurately predict how a suit should be tailored, based solely on the measurements customers provide online. The secret is: machine learning, built on a robust data set accrued over the past few years. As Black Tux feeds the algorithm more data on how customers’ measurements have historically correlated with suit sizes and alterations, it gets better at predicting which cuts will work best for future customers.



The Secret To A Perfectly Tailored Suit? For The Black Tux, It's Machine Learning

What the algorithm does for us is take the person’s height, weight, and body type in questions they answer—or a person’s self-submitted measurements and combines it with the height and weight—and then says, based on the measurements of our garments and our historical performance and fit, this is what this person is most likely to wear with X% confidence.
