What is Levi's 501 jeans for men?

Men's Levi's 501 jeans are one of the most popular cuts of Levi's men's jeans. There are two versions of the 501. The first is the Levi's men's 501 Original.

  • Button fly
  • Regular fit through the backside and thigh areas

What is special about Levi's 501 jeans for men?

Men's Levi's 501 jeans are so special because many consider them the first ever version of blue jeans as we know them. Back in May 1873, Levi Strauss and a man named Jacob Davis received a patent for riveted jeans. Davis had come up with the idea of using small rivets on the corners of jean pockets to help make them stronger and contacted Strauss with the idea. And thus, the blue jean as we know it was born.

The number 501 was used to identify the certain type of pants being produced. Nobody is sure why that number was chosen, but it went on to become one of the most popular numbers in all the fashion world.
