Additional Information

The year was 1947 and although the war had ended, the nation was much changed—and so were 501® Jeans. 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. While the back pocket arcuate was no longer applied with paint as it was during the war, it had certainly changed. Thanks to new double-needle technology, the famed double-arched stitch could be mass-produced in uniform size and design, no longer subject to the sewing skills of the individual worker.

Today, we reproduce all of these details using the same 1940s 12 oz red line selvedge denim. Designed with a post-war, slimmer fit, two back pockets with concealed rivets and features uniform arcuates on the back pockets, facilitated by double-needle technology, a Big “E” single-sided Red Tab™ and the iconic Two Horse leather patch. 13.1 OZ Denim.

Care for our planet: wash less, wash cold, line dry, donate or recycle.
Wash your jeans once every 10 wears at most, this increases their lifespan and saves natural resources. When you eventually launder your jeans, wash and dry them inside out with like colors, liquid detergent is recommended.
