The 1947-501
jean is regarded as the definitive five-pocket jean and the quintessential 501
model. Levi's
jeans had been in short supply during the years of World War II, when several key features were removed to save vital metal and fabric. By 1947, the newly restored 501
jean was in huge demand. The stitched Arcuate returned to the two back pockets: stitched with a double-needle machine, it now formed a diamond shape at the point where the two lines meet. Original Levi's
zinc buttons also enjoyed a comeback. But the crotch rivet, cinch-back and suspender buttons had been put out to pasture - permanently. Instead, belt loops and concealed copper rivets became standard. Made with Red XX Selvage using Cone Mills' deep tone indigo, the color blossoms with age in the purest redcast indigo. The 1947-501
jeans continued the tradition of a big "E" on the (single-stitched) red Tab, plus the Two Horse leather patch.
