An icon of American culture, the one that started it all—the 501® Original Fit jean. A fit that's straight through the hip with our signature button-fly. Tested by generations, they continue to define the modern dress code. Great for all builds.

Customer reviews for 501® Original Fit Jeans - DPP#7
The DPP 501 jean is true to size and fairly custom looking. However, the dropping of the back pockets, creating a saggy back side look is not all that great and I question why this was done to the 501s. If this is to be called "Original" why change it? Otherwise, nice jean. Like it. I also ordered the Powdered Hill 501. Same issue. Like both jeans even though the back pockets should have stayed true to the original.
I recommend this product!

Ha! You might be (partially) right. I still think the pockets dropped some recently but so has the butt-agree on that! I've purchased about eleven pairs of 501s recently, gotten used to the pocket style. Love them. Refused to buy jeans for years until I lost weight (went from a size 42 waist to a 34) so am committed to staying this size. However, like some younger reviewers, it has been noted that the back pockets have dropped somewhat. it's OK-I'm used to it. BTW, the BEST 501s on this site are the Powdered Hill. Made in Viet Nam, they are crafted so flawlessly that the button holes are perfect inside and out, the finish of the denim is incredible both sides. Recommended. These jeans are also a winner. I'd rate them 5 stars if i could do over.

We are close to the same age been wearing levis for forty or more years, anyway what I'm saying is maybe it is our back sides that have drooped and not the pockets. I know I've noticed it and not just on my 501's but also on my 505, 514, and my 517's
As follow up, this jean fits great and feels extremely comfortable. Deal with the change in back pocket and you'll love the cut and fit. Washed it cold, dried normal temperature and the fit and comfort remained perfect. I'd give 5 stars if the pockets in the back were a bit higher but love them just the same.
