The Legendary 1947 – 501 Model

The 1947 – 501 model was originally released after WW2 and has grown into the ‘mother’ of all jeans styles. Most styles are tweaked or replicated versions of this jean. During WW2 everyone was forced to use less material, and thus skip some features on jeans, to save material for wartime. After the war, some of the previous skipped features came back suck as the back pocket stitching, and watch pocket rivets.
