My Granny will be pleased to hear I’ve invested in a new pair of jeans!
The old pair served me well for 3+ years of heavy duty wear. The knees have holes, the pockets have holes, they’re just falling off me…
The old pair were replicas of the 1955 501 jeans. They have a quintessential 50′s shape – more anti fit in the seat area and a slightly fuller and straighter leg shape giving them a boxier silhouette. Around this time, teenagers began to use the term ‘jeans’ instead of ‘overalls’. This was the first 501 jeans to bear a leather-like Two Horse patch. The familiar levi’s capital ‘E’ Red Tab, zinc button fly and copper rivets remain standard issue. Xx 50 Cone fabric / 14oz red selvage denim / 3X1 RHT construction / First 501 jeans to bear the ‘leather-like’ two horse patch / Belt loops / Double sided big ‘E’ red tab / Zinc button fly / Hidden rivets on back pockets.
The new ones are replica’s of the Levi1933 501 jean featuring a cinch-back, in addition to belt loops and a button fly. The overalls also had a real leather Two Horse patch and hand applied rivets. XX20 Cone Fabric / 12.50oz after wash red selvage denim / Ring ring, pure indigo, 3×1 RHT construction / Loose fit with plenty of anti-fit in the seat area / Original red selvage jean / Crotch rivet, cinch and belt loops / Two Horse leather patch / Simple Arcuate (without center triangle).
Looking forward to wearing them to death
