General Information

Back To the Roots. A Pair of Levi's 501XX From 1947.

Cone Mills, a denim weaver in North Carolina which has been working with Levi Strauss & Co. for 100 years, produces the original 14 ounce „ring-denim“(recognizable by the white and red selvage inseam) for these jeans, on the old, narrow „shuttle loom“. Dyed with indigo, without sulfur additives.

The cut, the details and the ceremony.

California has maintained the figure-hugging pattern born in the raw materials scarcity of the post-war years. But a word of caution is in order here: this denim is neither „stonewashed“ nor otherwise treated. Wearing a pair of pants like these requires a certain ceremonial approach – a short stay in the bath tub will suffice for a „shrink to fit“.

The button facing features zinc buttons, just like it did 60 years ago. Rivets reinforce the back pockets, on the right hand pocket is the „pocket flag“ with the big „E“ in the company name, while the classical Levi’s patch is made of leather.

A note on care:

100% cotton. Contains non- textile elements of animal origin (the Levi’s patch made of leather). Instructions for washing are included. American jeans sizes. Be aware that the jeans will bleed and lose color after the first wash.
