LEVI´S® VINTAGE CLOTHING 1947 501 BING CROSBY CUSTOMIZED

Levi's® Vintage Clothing1947 501xx Bing Crosby Customized, These customized 1947 501® jeans were produced to accompany the Bing Crosby Tuxedo Jacket, designed for Crosby after he was denied entrance into a Canadian hotel because he and his friend were dressed completely in denim. The characteristics of the jeans are similar to the original 1947 501xx® except for the outer seams that have been busted out and re-hemmed to resemble the grosgrain ribbon on a pair of tuxedo pants

The 1947-501® jean is regarded as the definitive five-pocket jean and the quintessential 501® model. Levi's® jeans had been in short supply during the years of World War II, when several key features were removed to save vital metal and fabric. By 1947, the newly restored 501® jean was in huge demand. The stitched Arcuate returned to the two back pockets: stitched with a double-needle machine, it now formed a diamond shape at the point where the two lines meet. Original Levi's® zinc buttons also enjoyed a comeback. But the crotch rivet, cinch-back and suspender buttons had been put out to pasture - permanently. Instead, belt loops and concealed copper rivets became standard. Made with Red XX Selvage using Cone Mills' deep tone indigo, the color blossoms with age in the purest redcast indigo. The 1947-501® jeans continued the tradition of a big "E" on the (single-stitched) red Tab, plus the Two Horse leather patch.
