Baggy styles are making a comeback with Levi’s SilverTab reboot
The legacy of Levi’s SilverTab™ dates back to the ‘90s, when the super wide leg and baggy fit ruled the streets, inspired by the hip-hop and skateboard scene. Worn and loved by a generation, it became the unofficial uniform of the youth, as oversized clothing became the signature style of the ‘90s. The best part was: the longer the wear, the better the look.
Levi’s reintroduces the SilverTab™ Collection, all while bringing back the quintessential devil-may-care attitude of the ‘90s. Featuring the original silver-colored tab on the pocket of the denim and the SilverTab™ backpatch, the collection includes a range of oversized jeans, trucker jackets and shorts, as well as oversized graphic tees and tops, plus accessories. We’re all about a nostalgic moment!
The uniform of the ‘90s counterculture was defined by loose, baggy silhouettes, which mainstream brands, except for Levi’s, weren’t offering at the time. When the underground music scene, including grunge and hip-hop, were on the rise, the oversized and faded garb became all the rage.
As part of the new 2022 collection, Levi’s has recreated the same loose, baggy fits that capture the original ‘90s attitude, but with a modern feel. Standout pieces include the ‘94 Baggy SilverTab™ jean for women and both the SilverTab™ Loose jean and SilverTab™ Straight jean for men. Each comes in a range of indigo washes—as well as a special Green Machine wash on the men’s Loose—and feature the classic silver-colored tab on the back pocket as well as the iconic backpatch with SilverTab™ logo over the Levi’s® Two Horse pull.
The jeans in the collection also get matching oversized SilverTab™ Truckers, which feature the silver-colored tab and SilverTab™ backpatch. For women, there’s an extra hit of ‘90s nostalgia thanks to the SilverTab™ Overall, a classic Levi’s denim overall that comes in an oversized fit. Also included in the collection is a range of graphic tees featuring the original SilverTab™ logo, as well as a plaid SilverTab™ Oversized Shirt for men and a striped SilverTab™ Loose Shirt for women.
