Luke Skywalker Wore Levi’s in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

I thought that Aunt Beru’s fabulous denim jacket was the only denim sighting in the original Star Wars movie, but I was wrong! Luke Skywalker wore a sand-colored pair of Levi’s jeans in much of the film.

They were auctioned in 2013 for $36,000.


I have to say I was a little surprised that number wasn’t higher, and apparently so was the auction house, which estimated the jeans would sell for between $70,000 to $100,000. Maybe the photo above had something to do wth it?

I wouldn’t be surprised if they went back up on the auction block any day now, with all the buzz surrounding the new movie. And I’m kind of surprised Levi’s didn’t release a pair just like them for the millions of diehard Star Wars fans out there—not that I would succumb to purchasing such kitsch. Never.
