The 1978 501 jean marked a transition in production techniques and details for Levi’s. Due to a short supply of indigo, sulfur was added to the dye to extend its life. This resulted in a brighter blue finish that faded more quickly. In addition to a lower rise and slimmer, more tapered fit, they also became the first jean to switch from the big “E” tab of the 1960′s to the small “e” that is standard today.
