Levis Vintage Clothing 1967 505 Sanforized Denim

Introduced in 1967 as a slimmer “student” jean they were aimed at a younger market, they had a closer cut, with a slimmer straight leg than the 501, mid-rise with a fitted waist and seat and a zip fly. The biggest change for Levis with the 505 was that it was only the second of their jeans to use sanforized (pre-shrunk) cotton for its denim, meaning no shrink to fit faffing about in the bath, the appeal was obvious, and still is today. A great common sense pair of jeans which has a modern feel to it with all the advantages of old-fashioned quality
