Levi’s Vintage Clothing LVC 1947 501XX ‘Pitchfork’ Jean
LEVI’S® Vintage 1947 501®XX Capital E Redline Selvage “Pitchfork” Jean
The 1947 501®XX is regarded by many as the ultimate 5-pocket jeans. It is the post-war model, slightly slimmer in cut than its predecessors and sporting the uniform Arcuate design due to Levi’s use of a new technology at the time – double-needle sewing machines. The Arcuate designs are double-needle-stitched in lemon yellow on the back pockets and the the single-sided Levi’s Big E pocket tag is attached to the right pocket.
This pair comes in a special “Pitchfork” finish (Lot 47501-0052), a reproduction of a genuine pair of 1947 501′s stored in the Levi’s archives. The fabric is XX (premium quality) redline selvage 14 oz denim, deep dark indigo in colour over-dyed, stained and distressed for that “used” look. The sand-blasted areas on the knees and seat and “whiskers”, imitating creases at the crotch, back of the knees and near the bottom hems, “rusty” zinc top button and “oxidized” copper rivets, all contribute towards the distinctly worn-in appearance.
Features: Dark indigo 14 oz Red Selvage right-hand twill denim fabric, 2 rear pockets with hidden rivets and double-needle-stitched Arcuate design, capital E red tab, Two Horse leather patch, V-stitch near the top button, watch pocket with rivets and redline selvage on the inside of the top edge, single-felled inseam in yellow, bar tacking in black, “rusty” button flies, the top button stamped “034″ on the back, small rips on the thigh and back pocket. The jean is made in Turkey from American denim fabric.
The jean is pre-shrunk and will not shrink after washing. It fits true to size.

Waist 30 inches, length 32 inches. Actual measurements (taken flat): waist 30 inches (15 inches/38 cm across), inseam 32 inches/81 cm, front rise measurement (from top of the jean to the crotch – point of intersection of the two legs of the jean) 11 inches/28 cm, outseam 43 inches/109 cm, bottom leg opening 7 1/2 inches/19 cm.
