In October Levi's opened their first new concept store on Cross Creek Road, among great neighbours like Earnest Sewn, Double RL and Ralph Lauren. As we all know you can find a pair of Levi's on every corner, but with this concept store they will raise the image. The store sells the best of Levi's and some great other brands like Pendleton, Filson, Billy Kirk, Katin Board Shorts, Fieldnotes and some great books. It won't surprise me as this will be the new way of raising image for other brands aswell.
