The definitive five-pocket jean and the quintessential 501®, the 1947 jean is considered by many denim connoisseurs to have the most iconic cut and features, including a double-needle arcuate (with lemon-yellow stitching) and a selvedge edge on the inside of the coin pocket. Wartime restrictions had ended, hence the hefty 14-ounce denim, and the ’47 model also introduced the return of the riveted watch pocket. The Brain Dead 1947 jean is made from red selvedge denim that’s hard washed and lightly scuffed for an authentic aged finish.
