The Levi's 501 Jean is the most iconic jean in history. Nearly every pair of jeans ever made is based roughly on the 501. Yet, the jean has seen many iterations over time.
This 501 is based on the 1947 model—the first post-war 501 to be produced. It is made out of Cone Mills 12 Ounce Red Selvage denim, the same denim that they were originally produced with. The 1947 501 shedded some of the details that were more common for Levi's when they were still strictly work-wear: the cinch was lost, and the suspender buttons were replaced with belt loops. The fit was slimmed down, and became the iconic slim straight fit.
These jeans feature the iconic red "E" tab, a button fly, two back pockets with hidden rivets, and a coin pocket.
Made in USA.
