About Levis 1947

Levi's 501 jeans are not mere items of clothing but a landmark in fashion history. While Levi Strauss makes exquisite 501 jeans every year, none defines a period like the Levi's 1947 501 jeans. The 1947 jean was released immediately after World War II. Therefore, it benefitted from high demand and ready availability of raw materials. Levi Strauss got rid of the suspender buttons of the wartime 501 jeans and reintroduced watch pocket rivets and back pockets stitched with arcuate. Also back was the red pocket tab with its distinctive big "E" to give the slim Levi's 1947 Big E jean its nickname. This design became an instant classic and is still sold today as Levi's 1947 vintage 501 jeans. Although it has been widely imitated, you can still find a large inventory of the real Levi's 1947 501 jeans offered by reputable sellers on eBay. This pair of unassuming jeans defined a generation and became a true global icon.
