Levi’s – 1966 Japan 501


Well, Levi’s released something that is from the archives. The 1966 Japan 501. It is a reproduction of their old jean with bar tacks. The fabric is made from 12 oz red Japanese selvedge denim with the usual spots for copper rivets on the front and bar tacks on the back pockets for added durability. The back patch also has the Japanese language, which basically shows all of the Levi’s insignia including the two horses pulling on the jeans. Not only that, the Levi’s red tab is in Japanese. Since this is the original 501, it has five pockets with two back pockets. Best of all, it is made in Japan. It is already sold out. Check it out!

You know, I have a big problem about this jean. One, it is over priced at $600. Two, it is limited at 150 pairs. 3. The back patch is not even made of actual leather. I am sure the reseller are already making money of this. It is sad that Levi’s have to resort to this.
