The 501® Jean of the late 1970's shared shelf space with a wide range of pant styles popularized during the "Me Decade" — bell bottoms, straight legs, slacks with the look of jeans, and beyond. Despite the busy times, Levi Strauss and Co. stuck to the basics when it came to its most iconic style. The 1976 501® Jeans is popular with vintage enthusiasts, not for the fit or details, but for the fabric. The color started out a bit brighter but faded out faster, a welcome change for Levi's® fans who wanted to fade their jeans as quickly as possible. This pair is made from our classic Shrink-to-Fit™ denim, which forms to you over time. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SHRINK-TO-FIT™ DENIM.
