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 1954 model—the first time that Levi's began marketing their jeans on the East Coast of the United States. Before that, jeans had been a primarily West Coast phenomenon. The work-wear classic button-fly was not seen as appealing out East, so the buttons were replaced with a zip-fly, leading to the 501z designation. The fit was given a taper to cater to the style of the times.
These jeans feature the iconic red "E" tab, a zip fly, two back pockets with hidden rivets, and a coin pocket.
Made in USA.
