In 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis first introduced their classic blue jean. However, by 1890 their exclusive patent for riveted clothing had expired, meaning that other companies could use the same construction. In response to this impending competition, Levi Strauss & Co.® printed the inside pocket bag with information about the garment's originality and extra strong denim—referred to as "XX". More significantly, they assigned it an identifying number—501—which would evolve into a signature brand. Levi's® Vintage Clothing has honored the original and recreated its characteristic details —from the riveted construction and button fly, to the original Two Horse leather patch.
