I have a pair of Levi's Red jeans. I would like to know what year they were made. A little out of my realm for denim, prefer vintage American work wear.

Info as it appears on the tag. Made in the Philippines  SKINNY W36 L32 
It's a collection that's made on a limited basis on select years.  All I really know. Thanks for any and all help.

The 0308 signifies March 2008 I believe.

Thanks for the response. I'll have to look at the tag again, I may have mistaken a 6 for an 8. The last time Levi's ran a production of the RED line was 2007, but I may be mistaken about that... I'll have to dig a bit more or swallow my pride and contact Levi's directly.

It may relate to release rather than production date, so potentially produced in 2007 for release as part of a Spring 2008 collection - sounds feasible to me.

^I was all set to say something positive, and then that metallic 1873 mock-turtleneck happened.

However, Red did make a kind of avant-garde version of a 1870s Levis that was quite interesting. It had natural indigo denim of a silvery robins egg hue with a green selvedge id, and the proper features but with exaggerated scale in parts and purposefully erratic stitching. They were quite nice- in a kind of manga version of Levis way.

That sounds like something one of William Gibson's characters would wear!

*shudder* I dont know if it's seeing that mans navel, the sticker shock, or thinking about what makes a man that bow legged, but something gave me the chills

I think the last Red collection was launched in 2014 (the first in 7 years).
Here's the http://www.levisred.net" rel="nofollow - Levi's Red website that accompanied the launch.

so that website says that these pieces are highly sought after. Who exactly is buying and wearing this stuff? It's so avant garde that I'm having trouble understanding the appeal.

Note to self: replace wardrobe with clothes that only look good on windy mountain tops.

As a concept of course that's what sells fashion, the context.

It's when we get home and put stuff on (and post pics to the internet?) that the truth is revealed!

I rather like some of that 2014 season - Yohji in blue!

£85 for a pair of Levi's Red in http://www.globalhemp.com/2000/01/better-red-than-dead-levis-hits-back.html" rel="nofollow - 2000 !

Price inflation to date has kept pace with the London housing market.

Hard to believe that treasure trove survived all these years.

These jeans refuel your body by absorbing and recycling infrared energy that is converted from bod...
