Levi's, the quintessential all-American brand, controls more than 20 percent of the world jeans market, with sales topping $6 billion. But along with the jeans, consumers are buying something intangible: a feeling of belonging to a hip world culture. This program explores the Levi's phenomenon from Gold Rush to gold mine, and the efforts of Chairman and CEO Robert Haas, great-great-grandnephew of Levi Strauss, to keep the brand pure in spite of marketing new lines of apparel such as Dockers. A BBC Production.
