Our 501® Original Jeans have been a customization classic and everyday essential for almost a decade and a half. Worn in endless style combinations, you can never go wrong when you build your outfit around the original blue jean.

The Original

An iconic straight fit with our signature button fly, you know 501® Originals when you see them. Patented in 1873 and made for miners out West, our men’s 501® Original is an evolving classic that’s adapted to the needs and styles of each generation. Redesigned for her circa 1981, our 501® Original Jeans for women have the same classic straight leg and signature button fly.

Men’s 501® Fits

501® Originals are a forever classic. But if you’re looking for a more modern, elevated style, be sure to check out our 501® Taper Slim Jeans. Dress them up with a button-down shirt or down in a crewneck tee and our equally recognizable Levi’s® Trucker Jacket.

Temperatures heating up? Our 501® shorts for men have you covered. They fall just above the knee and come with a raw-hem option for an even more casual look.

Women’s 501® Fits

The best part about 501® jeans is that there are no rules to how you wear them. Size up for a borrowed-from-the-boys look or stay true to size for a more fitted silhouette.

During warmer-weather months, try our 501® Original Cropped and 501® shorts. True to the Originals, these jeans do it all and look great with everything. Wear them with a tucked in t-shirt and sneakers or a cropped blouse and heels.

If you’re still debating the comeback of straight-leg jeans for women, try our 501® Skinny. It has all the best attributes of the Original with a sleek skinny leg opening.
