We Road Test the Levi’s 505™C for 5 Rock 'N' Roll-Infused #OOTDs

We're filing this pair under Clothes We Can Wear Literally Everyday: the Levi’s 505™C is the slim, sexy high rise and flat front, no-fuss pair of jean denim heads would consider as #denimgrails.

Punk fashion of the ’70s—ripped jeans, leather jackets, silver metallic accessories, spikes, studs, statement tees with loud messages, and heavy makeup—rocked and stunned the fashion world. Wildly different from mainstream styles of the decade, the ’70s punk-rock fashion was a massive rebellion against conformity and capitalism in the UK and the USA.

For instance, The Ramones donned the 505™ on the cover of their self-titled album, 1970. Debbie Harry ruled the stage as she wore a pair of 505™ in her performances. Levi’s 505™ was also the star of Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers album cover.

Today, re-mastered to suit this generation’s rebels and rockers, the ageless 505™ is back. Whether you are a rock ‘n’ roller by heart, or simply want to spice up your ensemble, dare to rebel by wearing Levi’s 505™C. This new incarnation of Levi’s 505™ retains its classic leg style, zip fly and rigid denim, but is customized—hence the ‘C’—for today’s preferred fit: slim.

Aside from being the cult pair every rock star, rebel and artist type sported in its '70s heyday, the 505C goes beyond its uber-cool fashion pedigree as it remains one of the most versatile, perfectfitting jean types in the market—and everyone knows it takes most of us a lifetime to find one like that.

So, without further ado, we enjoin you to cop your very own pair of 505™C 's, and, rock-'n'-roll fan or otherwise, take these bad-ass pairs for a spin, whatever style mood you're on that day.


Our take on the Canadian tux: jean fabrics piled against each other, going against the combo's industrial leanings with high glam accessorizing.

Best in Sport

It's like that classic high-school film plot where the punk gets forced to join the varsity team and turns out to like it. The edge of a rock-'n'-roll pair of ripped jeans only serve as the fitting contrast to preppy athletic staples.

Who says cuddling with your most fuzzy sweater makes your style less on-point? A gigantic shawl, draped poncho-style over your classic sweater to effortful nonchalant perfection, takes care of keeping the sartorial edge.

Class Act

Primary colors, a boy scout scarf and a staid pair of low heels are jolted by surprise via punk rock buttons.

School of Rock

Any fashion girl would surely swim through throes of Emmanuelle Alt street style photos for an inspired rock-concert uniform: classic and chic, with just a morsel of Bowie extravagance.
