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.
