1954 saw the introduction of the 501Z which was a zip-fly version of the button-fly shrink-to-fit 501 with all of the well-loved attributes of its brother: the slim fit, slightly tapered leg, robust raw denim construction and concealed rivets. It stayed in the Levis line until 1976 when the pre-shrunk jean finally surpassed the shrink-to-fit version.Re-introduced here by LVC as a faithful one to one replica, the 1954 501 is one for the purists....buy a size bigger in waist and leg to allow for shrinkage, or buy your own size and never wash em!
