This move is to prevent workers from being exposed to the health risks of crystalline silica. In August 2010, the company launched a new denim shapewear sub-brand called Curve ID, which offers women more personalised pairs of jeans, with fit based on a woman’s overall shape instead of just her waist size. According to the company, 80% of women’s shapes can be categorised into three body types: Slight Curve (for straight figures), Demi Curve (for evenly proportioned figures) and Bold Curve (for curvy figures). This move forms part of the company’s plans to increase sales of premium branded denim products.
Levis Jeans Under the Levi’s brand, there are several sub-brands including: Levi’s 501 – Available in straight-leg fit. Levi’s 201 – This range is based on the authentic-workwear style for men and comes with a single pocket and buttons, in different colours. Levi’s Engineered Jeans – Based on the Levi’s ‘First Standard Fit’ from 1999, this limited edition jeans was primarily designed for men. It had a hand-sprayed paint finish with an 18 carat gold button and rivets cast from original moulds. To mark the 10th anniversary of Levi’s Engineered Jeans, the company introduced three mascots called Bernie, Fingers and Hopper as part of a pan-European ad campaign. The company promoted its range of jeanswear by depicting the three mascots in different fits of Levi’s Jeans. This campaign was also backed by print ads, street art and events, retail activities and online activities such as films and an art project on a dedicated website. Levi’s Red Tab – Based on the first five-pocket jeans created by Levi’s, for men and women.
Levis Jeans Levi’s XX – An archive-inspired collection that features the Levi’s Made and Crafted range. Levi’s Eco – The range of ‘sustainable jeanswear’ made with organic cotton and recycled denim dyed with natural indigo, distributed in recycled packaging.

In September 2010, to promote the launch of the Curve ID sub-brand, the company launched an online fitting service for women in 50 different countries and in 20 languages. The company claims the global digital site enables women to find their ideal denim fit based on their body shape, not size. In a bid to drive its sales and promote the Levi’s Kidswear range in 2010, the company introduced a lucky draw offer giving customers a chance to win a trip to California for a family of four or a year’s wardrobe from Levi’s Kidswear. The offer was run during the summer of 2010. In March 2010, Levi’s announced a new brand strategy looking at craft workers in a more modern scenario. Instead of workers, the company used men and women in the art, music, performance and catering sectors to show how the perception of craftworkers has changed. The online ads featured 18 craftworkers from these sectors and were supported by outdoor and press ads. In line with the change in strategy, the company also revamped its flagship store in London with the help of the 18 craftworkers who eventually became the brand ambassadors. Levi’s has used Facebook to promote itself by offering a tool that allows visitors to share the products they like with their friends.

Denim Jeans today Levis, Wrangler, Dockers, Lee and Diesel. These are just some of the better known names that people associate with the massive global jeans market. The enduring appeal of these blue icons which were originally put together for Californian goldminers is the fact that they combine comfort, durability and style at prices to suit every pocket. People with only modest budgets can buy basic pairs of jeans either online or in the High Street at historically low prices. They may not carry a well know name but they are rugged enough to do the job. Those able to pay average prices can expect to secure one of the big, reliable jeans brands while those with deep pockets can opt for one of the top designer names. In recent years the women’s jeans market has grown to rival the men’s market in size and importance and it’s no wonder that many of the biggest women’s designer labels can now be found on individual pairs. Who would have thought that jeans which were once mainly just worn by cowboys and builders now grace top women’s clothing emporia such as Harvey Nichols and Armani carrying price tags up to £200 a pair.
Statistics on Jeans Nearly eight in ten (78%) people wear a favourite pair of jeans until they wear out. These wearers are biased towards women and older consumers aged 45-54. Women are more than twice as likely as men (64% vs. 29%) to find it difficult to get jeans to fit them properly. Over half of consumers (56%) believe that cheap jeans can look just as nice as expensive ones. This attitude peaks among women and under-25s, but is not an opinion shared by designer jeans buyers Women are more likely than men to look for the jeans styles that are in fashion, such as skinny cuts, (45%) while men are less fashion-led and are uninterested in buying trendy styles.
Information Levi's, thanks to its attention-getting Curve ID jeans campaign, now tops the list of popular denim brands on Facebook with more than 1.6 million fans.

Since July 2010, the all-American brand has topped the list of most-followed denim labels on Facebook. Also on the list this week are Diesel, Guess and Wrangler Western.
