Warehouse 1105

Warehouse 1105 from their 15th anniversary

When you think about Warehouse and their jeans I’m pretty sure the 1001XX pop up in your head, just like it does for me. Unlike the 1001XX which (to no major surprise) is a reproduction of ’50s 501XX, the 1105 is a 505 repro from the ’60s. It’s a slimmer cut, shorthorn paper patch, no hidden rivets, no coinpocket selvedge and uses a zipper rather than a button fly like the 501 repros.

Edit: Scratch that, to be more precise it is a 551zxx repro, the first sanforized model Levi’s introduced back in 1962. Five years later they changed to models name to what we call it today – the 505.

Warehouse 15th anniversary denim

The best part of the jeans is unmistakably the denim, a 7×7 Memphis cotton twill. I’ve heard it so many times that how fantastic the 1001XX Warehouse used for their 15th anniversary was, being said that it is the best denim they’ve seen and so on. The 1105 from their 15th anniversary uses this very denim which makes me very happy that I get to experience it without lashing out lots of money for a pair of 1001XX. It has more of a grey tone than the current denim used for the 1001 and feels a little more rough too.
