The year was 1947 and although the war had ended, the nation was much changed—and the 501 jeans were no exception. The end of rations allowed for the return of some familiar 501 features, like the watch pocket rivets. But it also ushered in some updates in response to the changing time and emerging middle class, like a modern, slimmer fit and the removal of extraneous details like the cinch and suspender buttons.

Thanks to new double-needle technology, the back pocket arcuate was no longer applied with paint as it was during the war, and the famed double-arched stitch could now be mass-produced in uniform size and design, no longer subject to the sewing skills of the individual worker. 

These archival reproduction jeans from LVC are made with the same 12oz red-stripe selvedge denim as they were in 1947, and tailored with a post-war, slimmer fit that’s made the 501 the brand’s most iconic fit in the decades since.
