LEVI’S® VINTAGE CLOTHING 2021 SS 1955 JAPAN 501®

When Levi’s® Vintage Clothing released the Japanese edition of the 1966 Levi’s 501® jean last year, the response was overwhelming. Not only was it made in Japan, but every single element was translated into Japanese. In fact, Japanese customers were so excited, they asked Levi’s® Vintage Clothing to do it again. And of course, we obliged.

This time around, it’s the 1955 version of the Levi’s® classic, which is made in Japan from Japanese selvedge denim, and again features every single element—the back patch, the red tab, rivets, packaging, even the stamping on the buttons—translated into Japanese.

A big motivation behind this special edition all-Japanese 501® jean is the fact that all Levi’s® Vintage Clothing shrink-to-fit denim is now made in Japan.

“We wanted to celebrate this mutual commitment to quality, craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail with a limited run jean that’s also made in Japan. The 501®, after all, has such a long and important history in Japan—to this day, vintage 501®s are very covetable jeans on the Japanese market—so it seemed only natural that this limited edition jean should be yet another classic 501® from the Levi’s archives.” – Paul O’Neill, Head Designer for Levi’s® Vintage Clothing at Levi’s Strauss & Co.

The 1955 Levi’s® 501® jean has a looser fit with a wider leg. It’s the classic 1950s rock ’n’ roll jean, with a button fly and a boxy fit, as well as a Big-E red tab. The denim itself is a 12-oz. weight, and when washed features the “hairy” texture that’s a coveted element of Japanese denim. The 1955 Japan 501® Jean will be released on 501® Day, the birthday of the blue jean—May 20, 2021, with a limited 501 units available globally.
