The oil patina and repairs makes this jean very special! It gives the jean a rough character. The sewing job is well done. It’s a great one of a kind biker jean. Many thanks for sharing Arie!

  • Brand: Levi´s 501xx shrink-to-fit, USA-made

The seat was totally worn-out by the pre-owner due to sitting on the rough garage floor repairing his motorbike. Arie patched the seat with dark denim on his Singer machine.
