This is the Levi's Vintage Clothing reproduction of a 501 model from 1890. The 501 from this era could be describe as the mother of blue jeans and were created back in the days when a pair of denim trousers were intended to be worn as a protective garment working in the mining industry in western USA. The miners needed durable garments and quite a few companies started to produce work garments in the San Fransisco area during this period. Levi's was one of them and thanks to the patented granted in 1873 for the invention of reinforcing the distress points of the garment using copper rivets the brand is the only one remaining still in the business of making blue jeans today.
These jeans are in a good condition and made in the U.S.A by LVC. This pair is a little bit special as it is carries big patchwork repairs and stitched fold ups. The cinch buckle is missing and there is signs of wear. If you would like a heavy duty pair of LVC's with lots of character, here's your shot. Be sure to measure a pair of your good fitting jeans and compare with our measurements.
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of jeans from us! Give us a comment or an email when you place your order 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.
All measurements are in centimeters and measured on a flat surface. The thigh measurements are taken 10 centimeters down from the crotch straight across the pant leg.
