Levi's Vintage Clothing began in 1999 as way to highlight the brand's heritage, focusing on the evolution of the blue jean. The 501 has seen many iterations since its inception in 1890. Levi's has faithfully reproduced characteristic details and patterns as the silhouette has evolved over the years.
