Levi's Vintage Clothing1947 501 Shrink-to-Fit Straight Selvedge Denim Jeans

$250

Editors' Notes

The straight-leg 501 is Levi's most iconic, groundbreaking jean. This pair is a reissue from 1947, made in the USA from world-famous White Oak selvedge denim at Cone Mills, North Carolina. The style was reworked after the second world war to account for the scarcity of resources, hence the double arcs on the back pockets and the slightly slimmer cut. They will shrink on the first wash for the perfect fit. Shown here with a J.Crew T-shirt and Converse sneakers. Part of the MR PORTER essentials
