Fans of denim in general are sure to know that San Francisco is the home to Levi’s, easily the most well-known brand of jeans which has also been in operation since 1853. With that much history as well, you know that any flagship location has to pull out all the stops.
I was lucky enough to visit the previous Union Square flagship location, and I came away impressed by the scope and amount of offerings. However, the new location on Market Street & 4th Street does not disappoint.
The new shop contains 7,000 square feet of LEED-certified space, designed to reach an even larger audience than before. Market Street in San Francisco is one of the most popular shopping destinations in the city, and the single-floor store contains plenty of attractions for potential customers.
The wide open design features segmented areas that could be described as mini shops. The popular Levi’s Made & Crafted and Levi’s Vintage Collection lines are present, as well as Lot Number 1, which is a special made-to-order program only featured in two stores in the U.S.–this being one of them.
Going an extra step further, the store also features a tailor shop, where customers can get their denim customized to their liking.
Sticking with the theme of sustainability, the store features reclaimed wood from city piers and barns across Northern California and a special “Makers” section that highlights goods made by local artisans and designers. The walls also feature collaborations with local Bay Area artists, keeping true to the brand’s love and appreciation for its foggy city.
The new Levi’s flagship store is open now at 815 Market Street (at 4th Street) in San Francisco; 9:00am – 9:00pm Monday through Saturday and 10:00am – 8:00pm on Sundays.
