    This OUTSTANDING imprinted psychedelic Hippie Levis Jeans were one of two different pairs discovered in the UK last summer (2016) where they had lain in a drawer since the late 1960s. The other pair I did not win at auction was white, colorful and more "Pop Art" than these - and I put in a higher bid for these because I think they are an unexpected & iconic artifact of the era. Although the back legs of these with a huge “happy zipper” to me qualify as Pop Art. Upon my inquiry regarding these the UK seller wrote me this message:

    Hello Dick
    My mother bought them whilst on holiday in Morecambe. Lancashire. They were already printed when she bought them.
    They were a talking point but nobody can remember them ever being worn. Simply placed in a cupboard and forgotten about.
    Hope this helps
    Regards
    Jason

    ....Must have been an extremely low local printing run because I have never seen anything similar and to be found in such great shape! The front legs of these blow me away. Symbols, psychedelic fonts, Love & Trip verbiage and they are on genuine Levis from the period. I appreciate greatly Jason's provenance - which is always important to me but I doubt I had to tell you he lives in the UK. Can not recall the last time I heard a sentence with the word "whilst" in it.
