These 1933 XX 501 jeans are green caste with whisker fading on the top block and a scraping pattern so they look worn in by you.

Levi’s® Vintage 1947 501 Rig Jean

Hailed as the definitive five-pocket jean, the 1947 version is the quintessential 501® jean.

They were in short supply during the war, when several key features were removed to save metal and fabric, by 1947 the new 501® jean was in huge demand.
Whilst the Arcuate and original Levis® zinc buttons were back, the crotch rivet, cinch-back and suspender buttons were gone for good. Belt loops and concealed copper rivets became standard.

The denim is XUVS Cone fabric 14oz washed red selvage denim that is ring ring, pure indigo, 3x1 RHT construction.

The jean only has belt hoops as a method of waist adjustment; there are also hidden rivets on back pockets, the Two Horse® leather patch and single sided big ‘E’ red tab are also featured.

Levi’s® Vintage 1967 505 Rig Jean

In 1967 Levis® launched their first Levis® Red Tab® heavy denim jeans.

This slim, zip fly style was quickly adopted by students on both coasts of the USA. They were the first pre-shrunk denim jeans made by the Levis® brand, they have a slimmer styling in keeping with 60's tastes which remains popular to this day.
The 1967 version maintains a copper waistband button and the two-sided capital ‘E’ red Tab.

This season the 505® has been slimmed down further through handcrafted customization.

The Jean is manufactured from Kaihara Japanese 14.5oz pre-shrunk red selvage denim and features the Leather-like Two Horse® patch.
