Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1933 501XX

 In Apparel

A relic of the Great Depression, the 1933 501XX stems from a time when you literally had to wear both belt and braces, figuratively speaking. In addition to it’s very wide legged fit, the jean is recognized by its exposed rivets on back pockets; single stitched arcuates sewn by hand; rivets at the base of the fly; and the combination of both cinch back, suspender buttons, and belt loops. This particular pair has been worn on and off for a couple years and they’ve been machine-washed a few times at 60 degrees celcius.

It’s the same denim that’s used for the 1936 506XX jacket.
