Levi Stock Rises as Suit Settled Against Brunello Cucinelli

Levi Strauss stock surged after the company settled its lawsuit against Brunello Cucinelli, in which it accused the Italian luxury brand of breaching its trademarked pocket tab.

During Tuesday’s closed session, Levi’s stock steadily increased by 0.38% to $22.25 per share. This positive trend continued after-hours trading, with a surge of 0.67% to $22.40 apiece, indicating a solid market position despite the ongoing legal proceedings.

In a filed complaint, the San Francisco-based company has provided 14 images of Brunello Cucinelli, including almost identical copies of its tab, which the denim retailer and other clothing trademarked since 1938.

However, Levi acknowledged the settlement after the firm notified a federal judge in Oakland on Tuesday that it had dismissed the lawsuit with Brunello Cucinelli.

The firm warned that the Italian luxury brand might cause potential consumer confusion, predicting a sales decline and irreparable harm to reputation. It stressed the critical need for immediate action to mitigate these risks and preserve its market standing.

However, Brunello Cucinelli has not yet commented on the matter.

Meanwhile, in recent years, Levi has charged several cases to safeguard its tabs, including lawsuits against Kering’s Yves Saint Laurent and LVMH’s Kenzo. Both of those suits ended in settlements.
