The Levi's Vintage Clothing 1950's 701 were the first five-pocket jeans designed especially for women. They were originally introduced in 1939 and featured in a "dude ranch" photo shoot for Vogue magazine and like the 501 jeans of the time, this early version of the 701 had a cinched back, curved top block and wide, straight leg.
By the 1950's, it had lost the cinch back, but still maintained its distinct high-waisted fit. Remaining faithful to the original, Levi's have made this reproduction jean with signature selvedge line in pink instead of the traditional red. They also included reproduced zippers true to the Talon originals. These jeans are made with concealed back pocket rivets and the signature red tab on the back pocket.
The 701 model became popular and favored by many and one of them was Marilyn Monroe who wore the jeans on and off the screen.
