Remember the Levi’s 501? Unmissable looks with this classic

Levi’s 501 jeans are over 145 years old, but are again a trend among anonymous people and celebrities. Remember him?

When blue jeans appeared nearly 150 years ago by Levi Strauss, a Californian merchant, and Jacob Davis, a tailor from Nevada, no one could have guessed how successful they would be. It was the birth of Levi’s 501 that for many years were assumed as the clothing of mining workers in the American West. And that today, so many years later, we continue to use it non-stop.

The story of the Levi’s 501

Patented on May 20, 1873, what was different about this model of trousers from the others was a detail that made all the difference: the metal parts in the pockets and main seams. They were responsible for making the pants much more resistant (also known as rivets).

At the time, more than a trend, the Levi’s 501 was an innovation for being perfect for working men and cowboys, who needed a piece that was, at the same time, comfortable and resistant. Consequently, the success of the Levi’s 501 has more to do with its practicality and resistance than any other factor.

Since then, the Levi’s 501 has undergone some changes: they gained another back pocket in 1901, buttons at the waist and the seam pattern in the middle of the pocket as a brand image. And of course, along the way, they conquered fans all over the world.

Elvis Presley, Sienna Miller, Marlon Brando, Rihanna and Steve Jobs are just some of the celebrities who chose the 501 as one of their favorite pants models. As well as thousands of anonymous all over the world.

Although they were used a lot between the 60’s and 90’s, with the advent of skinny jeans the Levi’s 501, with a wider and straight cut, began to be used only by true fans. But, now, the model proves its timelessness having come back in force. Yes, Levi’s 501 are in fashion.

In fact, there are many men and women who, in a return to the past and perhaps adolescence, once again assume the 501 as their favorite model.

Practical and comfortable, these are those jeans that go with everything, from a family outing to a work look.

And that, therefore, embody memories that survive fashions and pass from generation to generation. The 501 is forever.
