Vintage Original Late 1970's / Early 1980's Levi's 501 Red Line Selvedge Jeans W 34
This is a pair of original vintage Levi's 501 jeans from approx late 1970's - early 1980's. 1985 was the last year that Levi's used unsanforized denim woven in USA for their 501's. Even if the US production was picked up again for the LVC line in 1998, the 1985 Levi's are considered collectable vintage garments. Simply because they are said to be the last batch of jeans from the Levi's main line that were actually made of high quality fabric, intended to last for a long time.
A neat detail of these jeans is the so calledleg twist, due to the nature of the fabric and the fact that they were cut and sewn using raw unsanforized denim. The legs twisted when the jeans got their first wash and today this detail is synonymous with vintage jeans. Actually a lot of the Japanese denim brands do their best to replicate this detail on the jeans they produce today!
The condition of these jeans are like a lot if vintage examples from this era. They've got a most beautiful fade, spots, marks and a few mendings. It's clear that someone has worn and loved these jeans back in the day and they still has a lot of wear left in them. Please note that the label says W 34 but they are small in size so make sure to see the measurements for actual size.
