The Levi's Vintage Clothing 1937 501 Jean is a key chapter in the Levi's story. It marks the debut of two significant features: the back pocket rivets being covered, as well as the classic salmon-colored flasher tag. The rivets were covered to solve a persistent problem: when wearers sat down, the metal hardware on the back pockets scratched their furniture (and saddles). 1937 also marked the first year the suspender buttons were removed. With the growing popularity of belts, suspenders were no longer the only method of adjustment, so the classic metal waistband shanks were provided separately in a small box.
