THE 1966 501 JEAN IN GREYSTONE WASH  BY LEVI'S VINTAGE CLOTHING. WHEN LEVI STRAUSS & CO. COVERED THE BACK POCKET RIVETS IN 1937, EVERYONE THOUGHT THAT WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF RIVETS SCRATCHING THEIR FURNITURE WHEN THEY SAT DOWN. BUT THOSE COPPER RIVETS WERE TOUGHER THAN THEY LOOKED. AFTER A FEW YEARS OF HARD WEAR, THEY CONTINUED TO BREAK RIGHT THROUGH THE DENIM, SCRATCHING THINGS UP AGAIN. BY 1966, TECHNOLOGY HAD CAUGHT UP WITH HISTORY, AND IT WAS POSSIBLE TO BAR TACK THE 501 JEAN’S BACK POCKETS, REPLACING THE BACK POCKET RIVETS. THIS SMALL CHANGE MAINTAINED THE JEAN’S NOTORIOUS DURABILITY, WHILE FINALLY SOLVING THAT DECADES-LONG FURNITURE-SCRATCHING ISSUE. THIS PARTICULAR STYLE OF 501 JEAN, WITH BAR TACKS AND A BIG “E” RED TAB ONLY EXISTED FROM 1966 TO 1971.
