Give Me a Minute: A Look at the Levi’s® Ribcage

Levi Strauss & Co.
March 12, 2019

At 12 1/8-inches, the new Levi’s® Ribcage jeans have the highest rise of any jeans the brand has produced – think 1930s Katherine Hepburn territory.

The new fits are perfect for capturing the look and spirit not only of past eras of women’s Levi’s®, but also of today’s stylish women who tailor their oversized vintage 501® jeans to create high-waisted denim perfection. It’s mid-twentieth century casual, meets 1990s grunge-era fashionable, meets Instagram-worthy street style all rolled into one.

Get the quick lowdown from a true expert – Megan Sparks, a senior merchant for U.S. mainline product for the brand, shares her insights into the hottest women’s fit of the season in our series we’re calling “Give Me a Minute,” where you get all that’s fit to know in 60 seconds.
