    closed in 1990.

    Although that's many years ago, my old US jeans (I did have more than one pair) lasted all that time.

    The current jeans last a year or two at most.  My present two pair are from Nicaragua.

    The family took the company private, buying out share holders with many millions of dollars worth of loans.

    The cost of actual "Made in the USA" jeans is $178 for a standard issue pair of 501s. But guess what?  The denim is imported, not US made. They're only sewn here.

      I can buy jeans made by union workers in the USA for 40 bucks - they just won't say "Levi" on them.

      So it goes.
