Being the first 501 to be produced post-war and after the short-lived rationing in the U.S.A the ’47 model is seen as a return to form after the austere 1944 wartime model, and sweeps away some antiquated details which had hung on the 501.
Whereas cut backs in manufacturing meant that many raw materials had been limited during the war, the ’47 came back with a simplified, slimmer silhouette. The famous stitched arcuate on the back pockets returned after being painted on during the war years, but thanks to new double needle machines it had the uniform shape and consistency which we all recognise to this day.
This model of 501 has a great classic shape with mid to high rise which suits a variety of styles worn truer to size for a close naturally slim-straight fit, or sizing up slightly for a looser shape the 1947 501 is our most popular shape which is easily identifiable as a pair of proper fitting quality jeans.
