Today I want to share another original vintage pair of Levi’s 501XX – Big E – Jeans from my personal denim archive. It’s a Levi’s Jeans 501XX pair from the late ’60’s. It has a really cool crotch repair and many signs of hard wear. These kind of fadings on original Levi’s Jeans are for me personally the best. The jeans has so many character and is loaded with the original features as;

  • 501XX fit
  • Big E Red Tab – Made in the late ’60’s
  • Washed-out redline selvage
  • Number 16 on the back of the top button
  • Classic V-stitch at button fly
  • Single stitched backpockets
  • Twisted legs
  • Worn-off backlabel
