HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEVI 501 XX

#1 Post by winchester1886 » Sun May 20, 2018 5:50 am

Yep 145 years ago today May 20 1873 Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis received the patent for brass rivets on the back pockets off their blue denim overalls, thus creating the famous LEVI 501 XX Shrink to fit overalls (the word jeans did not appear until 1960) the Daddy of all blue jeans since whether people know it or not.
When you slip on a pair of 501 xx shrink to fit jeans, you are sliding into history they have been the cowboys pants ever since, the greatest single clothing item the world has ever seen.
I don't I won't wear anything else, and they sure make women's butts look good to.
What a great year was 1873, WINCHESTER 1873, COLT 1873 SINGLE ACTION ARMY AND LEVI 501 XX SHRINK TO FIT JEANS, all good COWBOY gear.
So a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the 501's.

Yup, they do make great jeans but it's a pity that the company is anti gun.... :(

I heard or read somewhere that the first denim pants produced were not actually blue in color. And Levi Strauss were making men's work trousers before the "rivet"... and that it was in response to their customers' complaints that the seams and pockets ripped too easily.

Most cowboys wear Wranglers. Working men can't afford Levies.

Not all of the cowboys wear wranglers, I am to old and stove up for that now but I have worn Levis since I was about eleven years old. I have tried Wranglers and just don't like the way they fit. For one thing the legs are to tight. A pair of Levis 501 will out last any other pants I have tried. I don't like their stand on the gun rights, but that is my choice of pants for everyday and starched ironed for church.
