In this collection, we have multiple pairs of authentic vintage Levi’s 501 jeans available in a variety of sizes and washes. Unless otherwise noted, each pair is unisex, with a button fly, and made in the USA in the 1980s-90s out of 100% cotton denim.

Each pair is in pre-loved vintage condition, and are in a variety of conditions from fashionably distressed to like new. We provide a condition description for each pair, and you can zoom in on the photos to get a closer look.

PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE!

SIZING:
Each pair of jeans has an item number with the actual waist size in inches listed next to it. Please note, this number will often be different from the tag size on the jeans. To purchase, find the item number of your desired pair in the dropdown menu.

We measure the waist and hips of the jeans lying flat, then double that number to get the total waist and hip size. For example, if it measures 15” across the waistband lying flat, the waist measurement will be 30.” The hip measurement is taken across at the bottom of the zipper.

The best way to ensure fit is to compare the measurements of the jeans to those of a pair you already own.

RETURN POLICY:
We accept returns for store credit only, for the amount of the item price minus a $5 restock fee. Shipping charges to and from are not included in your store credit. Buyer is responsible for return shipping.

We offer free US shipping on all orders over $150, and we have over 3,000 other vintage items for sale in our shop.

Please ensure you have read the condition description and the measurements for your pair of jeans before purchasing!
