Recently I bought this Levi’s Vintage Clothing 501 Big E, 1947 model, re-production. This jean is really heavy worn by it’s pre-owner, the jean was bought as a raw denim and is totally destroyed within the years. The jean is one of the last productions from the famous Valencia Street factory in San Francisco, U.S.A. Levi’s decided to close this factory in the year 2002. This jean is made around 2000 as the button indicates the number 555. The pre-owner used this jean the last years as a worker and painting pant.

This particular 1947 model is still one of the most iconic 501 models in history. It features some really modern features: red tab, five pockets and belt loops: the suspender buttons, cinch, and crotch rivet have gone forever. The jeans still have a leather 2-horse patch, and the red tab is single-sided, and it has the word LEVI’S printed on one side only in capital which means that this is a Big E. This 1947 – 501 model was slimmer than pre-war models.

Check this really heavy worn-out Levi’s Jean here below. A true beauty and a great addition in my private collection.
