Originally launched by the Levi’s® brand a decade earlier, SilverTabTM became the go-to ‘90s collection thanks to its baggy styles inspired by hip-hop and the skateboard scene. Just as Levi’s® Orange Tab established the counterculture look of the 1960s and ‘70s, Levi’s® SilverTabTM was the official uniform of the 1990s. And now, after a brief reboot in 2018 – and a Levi’s® SecondHand capsule in 2020 – SilverTabTM is officially back for Fall 2022 with a brand new oversized, 1990s-inspired collection.
Reviving not only the styles and fits of the original ‘90s SilverTabTM collection, the new ’22 collection also brings back the quintessential attitude of the ‘90s as well. Featuring the original silver-coloured tab on the pocket of the denim and the SilverTabTM backpatch, the collection includes a range of oversized jeans, Truckers, and shorts, as well as oversized graphic tees and tops, plus accessories, all of which bring back a sense of ‘90s nostalgia.
Defined by their loose, baggy silhouettes, part of the popularity of the original Levi’s® SilverTabTM line was the fact that few mainstream brands were offering those fits at the time. It was exactly the sort of oversized look that ‘90s skaters and hip-hop artists were looking for. Which gave it just the sort of cultural cache that defined the style of the era. Loose and baggy, cinched and low, washed and faded, with maybe a frayed hem or two. It’s hard to imagine anything more uniquely ‘90s than that.
As part of the new 2022 collection, Levi’s® recreated the same loose, baggy fits—not to mention those perfectly faded washes—that capture the original ‘90s attitude, but with a modern feel. Standout pieces include the ’94 Baggy SilverTabTM jeans for women and both the SilverTabTM Loose jean and SilverTabTM Straight jeans for men. Each comes in a range of indigo washes and features the classic silver-coloured tab on the back pocket, as well as the iconic, backpatch with SilverTabTM logo over the Levi’s® Two Horse pull.
Levi’s® SilverTabTM is available now ($49.50 to $149.90) on Levi.com.sg, and select Levi’s® outlets.
