Levi's 501 Original Straight Jeans, Light Broken

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 light garment 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.

Editors Notes

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.
