This jean was originally released as the 501®Z, and represents the expansion into a new territory.
In the mid-1950's, Levi’s® started selling its trademark 501® jeans on the East Coast. Up to this point, Western states had been the primary sales region since the brands birth in 1873. East Coasters, however, were largely unfamiliar with the button fly work pant. To make it more approachable for new wearers, they took the original 501® and replaced the classic button fly with a zipper, and named it the 501®Z.
It retained all the other details loved by longtime wearers: the famed silhouette, rivets, and the double needle arcuates.
