Back Cinch

The back cinch is a buckle placed on the yoke of jeans. Back cinches were the common way for jeans wearer to tighten the waist before widespread use of belts. Levi’s stopped fitting the back cinch on their 501 jeans during WWII, but with renewed interest in vintage-styled looks, cinch backs have returned on modern jeans.
