1950s Vintage Levi's 501 Redline Selvedge Patched Jean Size 23
Sale priceRegular price
A one-of-one pair of vintage Levi’s curated by longtime denim collector Brit Eaton. Brit travels to mines throughout the United States where workers wore Levi’s to recycle hard-to-find gems from decades past. Each pair he sources boasts completely unique historical details, holding decades of mystery just waiting to be revisited.
This jean was made in the 1950s from selvedge denim, which utilizes heritage techniques authentically woven on old looms that produce less waste. As production shifted from these looms to bigger, more efficient ones, selvedge denim has become increasingly rare and collectable.
Most vintage Levi’s were originally men’s styles and sizes, resulting in slightly narrower hips than traditional women’s jeans. Please double check each pair’s individual measurement to ensure you find the right fit.
