LEVI'S VINTAGE 1966 501 - RIGID INDIGO
Levi's has brought back the original 501's. The 501 jean was originally designed in the 1890's as a utility overpant designed for use in mines and on farms; over the years, the style became the unofficial working trouser of lumberjacks, cowboys, and railroad workers. The vintage 501 jean has continually evolved, ultimately gaining acceptance for everyday wear the world over. These jeans are faithful stitch-for-stitch re-creations of the vintage originals, from the pure cotton Cone Mills red-edged selvage denim to the historically accurate cut and features. 1966 marked the introduction of the “rounded block” fit, with a silhouette not quite as straight as previous versions. The button fly returned, as well. Faux-leather back patch. Levi's 1966 Vintage 501 jeans in indigo. Washable. Made in Los Angeles, California.
