In random news of the denim-sphere…Last night, the Nate D. Sanders auction house in Los Angeles sold a pair of 501 Levi’s worn by Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain for a whopping $21,013. The weathered trous, sized 34 x 36 inches, came with a pair of faded yellow workman gloves with “Ennis” (Ledger’s character in the film) written in black marker on the inside. Coincidentally, the jeans sold exactly 140 years after Levi Strauss invented his iconic 501s.
