An exacting reproduction of the 1955 501 from Levis Vintage Clothing. just as it appeared on shelves when first released. The 1955 has come to represent classic 1950's biker and hot rod style. The jean has an 'antifit seat', boxier silhouette and fuller leg than its predecessor the 54' and was adopted by a new generation of wearers on both coasts.

These denims have now been replicated by Japan's Kaihara Denim Mills to the same exacting details and standards of the original Cone Denim models.

Model wears a size 30

Dan is 177cm tall and weighs 68kg. He is a size 30"(76cm) waist and 37"(93cm) Chest. He normally wears a size S/M in upper body.

We recommended washing jeans inside out and wash in cold water and then line dry. The cold water wash can either be done by hand or in a front loading machine on a delicate cycle. It is worth noting that most top loading machines tend to spin the jeans too aggressively which can lead to streaks in the denim where the jeans rub against themselves.

Regardless of the washing method, air drying is essential. Air drying helps the jeans retain the custom fit you obtain through months of wear when starting with rigid denim. 

Warm water washing once a jean has been worn in is perfectly acceptable but also avoid hot water or tumble drying with any denim products.

The 1954 501

The Levi's® Vintage Clothing 1955 501® Jean represents classic 1950s biker style. This jean had an "anti-fit" in the seat, slightly fuller cut around the leg, and boxier silhouette. It was also the first to bear Levi's® leather-like, paper Two-Horse Pull patch. Additionally, the updated red tab is double-sided—another example of Levi's® meticulous attention to detail. This version of the 501® still retains some classic features of its 1947 predecessor: belt loops as the only method of waist adjustment, hidden copper rivets on the back pockets, and a zinc button fly.This jean is made with Kaihara denim from Japan.
