The 1947 fit made by Sugar Cane is perhaps one of the most accurate reproductions of a pair of Levi's 501 as they looked in the middle of the 20th century. Like many other brands, Sugar Cane started making their reproductions back in the late 80s when the vintage original jeans were becoming hard to find and the newly produced jeans of the time was nowhere near quality of jeans in the 50's. Today we are happy that these makers kept making jeans in traditional style and top quality denim. If you are looking for a pair of jeans that never will be out of style the 1947 Sugar Cane is the perfect choice!
This version is made of a Japanese pink-line 14,25 oz denim that has been washed once. You don't have to worry about shrinkage when you wash them for the first time and when worn for years they will look almost identical with a pair of vintage, well worn 1940's jeans.
When it comes to the size these jeans are quite small in the waist so we would recommend you to size up one size from your regular size for a comfortable fit. If they feel snug in the waist when you try them on you can also expect them to extend a couple of centimeters when worn.
The slim waist makes this a fit that actually works well on women too!
The last two pictures in the slideshow will give you an idea of how wonderful this pair of jeans will develop over time.
Douglas is 180 cm long, weigh 84 kilos and wears a size W34.
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of jeans from us! Give us a comment during check out and we will shorten them before we send them. Keep in mind that you won't be able to return the jeans if we alter the length for you.
For hemming, we'll use a vintage Union Special chain stitch sewing machine, to match the original seam of the jeans.
