Levi’s 501 1954 – Review of the Levis Jeans Vintage Clothing

I purchased my first selvedge denim (rigid as the Levi’s Vintage Clothing calls) in the promotion of lightning from the site of the Levi’s Brazil indicated here in Only Wanted to Have One.

Levi’s 501 1954 – Review of the Levis Jeans Vintage Clothing

The first jeans raw that I caught was the Levis 501 1954. I did not know what to expect, since I had never seen a selvedge denim up close. The anxiety was great, and to help the delivery was somewhat delayed on account of the carrier.

Then came the big day… I received my 501 1954 Rigid. When I took it out of the plastic, I saw all the difference in the jeans.

  • Stunning detail reproduction;
  • The letter attached to the pocket by simulating, in writing, the typewriter, telling a bit about the history of the model purchased;
  • Tags, Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Cone Mills;
  • Even a small label, such as that used in the past to put the price in the clothes.
  • The fabric of it is a Red Selvedge from Cone Mills of 12oz (14oz. after the first washed). The weight increases because the jeans is not sanforizado. When she shrinks, a weight per square metre increases.
  • I confess that I took when I put on the first, since the fabric was thicker and heavier than I was used to. However, with a few days of use, she already gets more soft and comfortable. Will shaping up gradually to the body of the owner.
  • The cut of it is different from the Levis 501 1966. It is more slim, with legs more adjusted on the thighs and a slight taper that down set up to the mouth. The waist is also higher than that of the reproduction of the pants and 1966. It can be something surprising for those who are not familiar with.
  • The color is also pulled in to a blue more deep and a big difference from the jeans, Levis 501 1954 to the other women in other decades, is the zipper.
  • Yes! It has a zipper instead of traditional buttons. The Levi’s tried to implement the zipper in the 501 in 1954, but after many complaints they decided to go back and leave the buttons. A curious fact is that, given up to a letter from a client at the time who said: “Why the hell did you put the zipper in your jeans?”.
  • She has the tag red only written on the front with the Big And, other than the 66 that is already written for both sides. The differences in the details of this tag are the red turned to a signal is very important for collectors of vintage jeans, including jackets trucker.
  • This Levi’s still has the rivets in the rear pockets, but hidden beneath the fabric. The bows on the pocket are sewn. Unlike pants Levis 501 1944and Levis 501 1933, this seam allowance is already made with a machine double.
  • The patch is leather, with the design of 2 horses. The phrase “Every garment guaranteed” still appears. In the name of the batch, the pants follow the format 501XX.
  • I’m using mine for exactly 2 months. This without washing and no soaking. Two months of intense usage even.
  • The first fades began to appear on the side of the knees, the back pockets and on the front, what I call the whiskers of a cat. When shooting, she is already in the shape of my body when hanging.
  • Pants Levis 501 1954, of Levis Vintage Clothingwas really very comfortable with this length of use, and the denim is aging very well. Worth be very difficult to find them here in the lands of the tupiniquim, probably by the high price even out there.
  • If you have the opportunity I recommend strongly to buy a LVC. Who knows has a in the online store of the blog, I’m always panning in search of this type of product for you.
