Levi Jeans Number System

Demystified

At present I have one pair of Levi's legendary 501's. I looked to purchase another pair, and was confounded by the variety of styles, shades, colours and numbers.

After googling, I got some answers.

Product Lines

* Red Tab
* Silver Tab (this line started in 1990 and is marketed to a more fashion-forward demographic; the last five years this line got a make-over to resemble an urban wear look rather than the traditional Levi's look)
* Dockers
* Levi Strauss
* Type 1 - discontinued but still available in Asia
* Engineered - discontinued but still available in Asia
* Circle R
* Red Loop
* Levi's Vintage Clothing (L.V.C)
* Levi Strauss Signature
* Next Cube Blue Print (N3BP)
* Capital E

In 2000, the "Launderette" advert for Levi's 501s was named the 6th best television commercial of all time, in a poll conducted by The Sunday Times and Channel 4, a UK based newspaper and TV channel.

What Is Art?



Supermoon

Full Moon

A supermoon is a full moon that comes closest to the Earth than any other time during its orbit. The moon appears as a giant ball hanging in the night sky. Technically its called a perigee moon and oribits 225,000 miles from earth.

A supermoon is also called a Perigee moon and appears approximately 15 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon. Its an awesome sight.

Five days ago, on August 10 this year we had a particularly bright supermoon, its orbit came closer than its usual proximal swing-by. Supermoons are regular appearances in our skies, occurring about every 13 months.

When the moon is furthest away from the earth during its orbit, its called an Apogee moon and orbits 250,000 miles from earth.

Here are dates for some future supermoons:
  • 9 September, 2014
  • 28 September, 2015
  • 14 November, 2016
  • 2 January, 2018

Book - No Limits: In-Line Skating

Totally Useless

Don't bother!


Book - In-line Skating

I'm Reading...

Probably a good read for a total newbie, as it contains lots of info on all aspects of inline skating. I found very little of use in the book, as I've read and researched extensively both online and other books I bought.

If you are totally new to the sport and have zero knowledge, it may be worth picking up cheap on amazon. A better book is William Nealy's Inline.
