Levi's 501 Original Straight Jeans, One Wash

Product information

The ones that started it all, Levi's 501 Original Fit Jeans are the ultimate icon of American culture.

Crafted from non-stretch mid-weight cotton denim in a regular fit that's straight through the hip with a slightly tapered leg opening, their mid rise cut sits below the natural waist with a tilted waistband that pitches toward the front.

Finished with a deep rinse, this pair's classic five-pocket silhouette sports a signature button-fly and 17" leg opening.

Less Laundering

It’s best to wash denim as little as possible in order to prevent shrinking and fading. Delay washing your new jeans as long as you can, instead hanging them out on the washing line to air. When they are ready for a freshening up, turn jeans inside-out and wash separately in cold water and line dry, if possible.

Brand Story

Established in 1853 in the United States by enterprising Bavarian immigrant Levi Strauss, Levi’s is the original jeans brand, pioneering the use of rivets in trousers to create the world’s first jeans.

With a rich heritage and an association with the rugged character of the American mid-west, Levi’s continues to produce iconic and classic jeans that are both timeless and effortlessly cool.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it These pair of Levi's are the most comfortable jeans I have ever had. Fits good, looks good. Higly recommended. Sadly I can't buy "Made in the USA" models in Hungary. 11 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Best you can buy but disappointing Still the best but disappointing as the fit has changed. Waist lower than it used to be so not so comfortable - old days 501 were always a perfect fit, with the slightly higher waist at the back so no bottom cleavage (like you get with other comparable makes) but now as the rise has been shorten - well you get the picture. As someone who has worn 501 for over 50 years I have a right to be disappointed. Maybe Levi's should introduce an older man's 501 - 501 over 50 as I can't be the only person with this problem. BTW Side seam on one leg doesn't run down the side but drifts towards the front of the leg. 17 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant jeans My husband loved his old pair so when the knees finally started to wear through on those there was no hesitation in getting the same again. Classic Levi straight sit jeans are a good colour which does not fade quickly, is durable and strong material and fasteners, they are comfortable and true to size. they last so much better than other jeans and keep looking good, so well worth paying slightly more for! 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decades of jeans loyalty My husband has worn Levi 501's from the Big E era back in the '60's to this very day. I am still buying them for him for Christmas and nothing has altered except, minimally (!) the waist size....Easy to buy them on line if the shop isn't too close by....No better recommendation that this! 10 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Levi 501 Great jeans!, fit well. Good delivery from John Lewis. 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 55 years wearing Levis. 70yrs old. PhD in Ageing and Exercise Never worn another brand in 55yrs. I have the secret of fading jeans 'naturally'. By them after one wash! 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Levi 501's Excellent! Excellent delivery good packing! These jeans are well made and a good fit. I have always had 501's and they fit and wear well. The 32" waist and short, meaning and inside leg of 30" are as ever "spot on" Would certainly recommend these jeans and the suplier John lewis 14 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just right! I ordered the 501's online as my local department store did not do a 33 inch waist. They arrived on time and fitted really well. The quality was just what we expected from Levi. Fabulous would definitely order direct from Levi again! 09 November 2015
