Marketplace Challenge:

In Malaysia, Levi's 501 jeans is a premium-priced brand. Purchasing a pair of Levi's can easily set the target audience back by about a month's rental on accommodation. And for about the same price, the target has an increasing number of choices among designer brands such as Guess, MNG, GAP, etc. Levi's, the original jeans, was being seen as old and unfashionable in comparison, and was fast losing appeal amongst them.
