The Levi’s Best of collection is a tribute to the originals with a commercial twist. This is a pair of the 501 shrink-to-fits from the premium red tab line. The designers have taken all the best features from historic jeans from the Levi’s archives and in many ways these jeans are identical to the top-of-the-line Levi’s Vintage Clothing products. Selvage fabrics (from Japan though, not Cone Mills), chain stitched hems, hidden selvage on the coin pocket, leather patch, punched through copper rivets, zink buttons, V-stitch at the top button, and single stitches on the back pockets. There’s no Big E on the red tab and they’re sewn in Turkey not America.
