A cultural icon. Worn by generations, defining style for decades. Since Levi's® invented it in 1873, the 501® Original has been a blank canvas for self-expression. An iconic straight fit with the signature button fly and an authentic look and feel. The 501® Original sits at the waist and is regular through the thigh with a straight leg. Can be worn with a clean rolled hem or full length, whichever you prefer. Looks especially great with a Levi’s® Trucker Jacket and a simple crewneck tee for a classic all-American look. Every drop counts, so we aim to use less water. Our designers are constantly thinking of new ways to create the same styles you love while cutting back on H2O, such as updating finishing techniques to require less water than traditional processes. These are made using our Water<Less® techniques.
