Levi's 501 (66 single)

 A used 501 66single model. This is an 66single model, as the stitching on the back pocket is single stitched, and the color is still there after 60-70%, but it is a denim with a strong vertical drop. The one shown here is customized to a zip fly and also has a hemmed up length, so I was able to get it for a cheap price for its condition.

The hem is heavily twisted. The 66single model of 501 is often thought to be thin and straight due to the fact that many replica jean manufacturers are selling slender products under the name of 66 models, but they are actually not as thin as XX and BIG E.

It is stamped with the CARE stamp. Also, a perforation can be seen on the far right, indicating that the original had a tear-off tag on it.

The back of the inner tag is also missing the printing. It's a shame because I can tell the date of manufacture if I can see it.

The button has a lot of pitter-patter and is raised in the center. Made of galvanized iron.


It has been modified from a button fly to a Talon's zip fly. To the right of the zipper, the buttonholes remains.

It is engraved with a "6". The stitching above the waistbelt is chain stitch and the parallel stitching across the top button.


This is a copper-plated iron rivet, and the engraving is unchanged compared to those of the earlier and later periods.

The red lines have already faded. Even taking into account the shrinkage, there is a big difference between the notation length and the actual size, so it is considered to be hemmed up.


It is sewn with chain stitch.


A long vertical drop to the right can be seen, which extends from the waist to the hem of the jeans. These long vertical drops are also noticeable in other parts of the body.
