The Levi’s® Vintage Clothing 1947 501® was the jean of a new generation, with a slimmer fit and no extraneous details like the cinch or suspender buttons. Watch pocket rivets (re)appeared, and, thanks to new double-needle technology, our famed Arcuate Stitching Design® could be produced on a larger scale with double-needle industrial technology. We’ve reproduced all of these details and even worked with a Japanese artisan mill to meticulously recreate Levi’s® selvedge denim from the 1940s.
