Levi’s® 501 Jeans in Vintage Indigo Review on Denimology
I’ve done so many reviews for the more technical form fitting, curve hugging, shape retention, asset flaunting jeans with cutting-edge fabric blends lately that I almost forgot about the more laid-back, relaxed, 100% cotton side of the denim world! Well, not really, but it’s nice to revisit this style from time to time, especially with summer coming up, when the looser styles are often more comfortable in the higher temperatures that make us want to kick back and relax a bit more. Now it’s time to wrap up my Levi’s® series with my fourth and final installment, a Levi’s® 501 Jeans in Vintage Indigo review!
As mentioned before in my last two Levi’s® reviews, Levi’s® is one of the few companies that has stood the test of time as a classic American denim brand lately has created many updated styles to cater to more modern tastes, while staying true to its original roots with items from their Icon Collection such as the Trucker Jacket, the well-loved 501 jeans and Western Shirts. The 501 is probably the epitome of classic Levi’s®, “the ultimate icon of American culture, the one that started it all” as the brand puts it. I constantly see requests for more from Levi’s® fans on the brand’s social media platforms! It seems that jeans made of 100% denim is pretty rare nowadays apart from raw denim from brands like G-Star RAW or Superdry…but those brands represent more high-end, dressy styles. Levi’s® to be the one of the only brands (if not the only one) that has clenched on the classic, casual pure cotton denim element of the industry through all these years, at least from my point of view! I had almost forgotten what 100% cotton denim felt like, and when I first put these 501s on, I almost thought they weren’t that soft because I’m so used to the crazy fabric blends like that of DL1961 that feel like silk on my skin! I guess I could say I’ve been spoiled…
