1947 501 - Rigid (Shrink to Fit)
The Levi's Vintage Clothing 1947 501 was the jean of a new generation. After World War II, raw materials became available again, so Levi's jeans could now be made with their original features. Levi Strauss & Co. leapt back into heavy production to meet the growing demand.
With a slimmer fit and no extra details like the cinch or suspender buttons, the 1947 501 was a jean ready for the changing times. However, it still marked the return of familiar, classic 501 features. 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. LVC have reproduced all of these details, and used the same selvedge denim from Cone Mills of North Carolina—a Levi's brand partner for over 100 years.
