This is a pair of original vintage Levi's 501 jeans made week 09 in 2000.
A neat detail of these jeans is the so called leg twist, due to the nature of the fabric and the fact that they were cut and sewn using raw denim. The legs would have twisted when the jeans got their first washing 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 jeans are vintage and have been worn a lot and they are faded to a bright blue shade that comes from lots of wear and lots of washes! This is the kind of wear that a lot of pre-distressed jeans tries to replicate today, but in our opinion no fabricated fade can rival a pair of actually worn and faded jeans that have been around for decades. The left thigh and the side below the right front pocket has been repaired by us (see picture). Other than that the jeans are in great shape for their age.
Please note that the label says W38 / L32 but they are small in size so make sure to see the measurements for actual size.
