A pair of pristine 1893 Levi Strauss & Co. jeans that were stored for decades in a trunk will go up for auction soon and are expected to bring in tens of thousands of dollars. The jeans were ordered for Solomon Warner, a businessman and pioneer who participated in the creation of the Arizona Territory. Warner wore them only a few times before falling ill. He died in 1899.

It would be interesting to find out how much Levi's is willing to drop on this piece of history.

These are some BIG jeans!

A pair of 501s manufactured in the 1880s sold for $60,000 to a Japanese collector in 2005 and another pair, from 1888, sold six months ago for six figures.
