Levi's is celebrating the 140th anniversary of the 501 jean this year. As the years have gone on, the straight-legged jean has gone through different transformations and ultimately found its place in the heart of American culture; something that's changing as much as the 501's silhouette.

To celebrate the different ways the 501 is perceived, Levi's has put together a book, 501 Interepretations, that features 501 different photos from all aspects of the Levi's world.

To give a preview of what the book will contain, photographer Francesco Carrozzini shot a black-and-white series of image that depict some of New York City's most influential fashion people—including some of the most stylish men in media. Included are Eugene Tong, Josh Peskowitz, Michael Williams, Nick Sullivan, Mark McNairy, Todd Snyder, and more. 

Browse through the images, and you'll see more than dudes you wish you were as cool as, you'll find new ways to up your personal style.
