Original 501s - Hawks
Genuine vintage Levis 501 denim shorts. Original high waist style, with button fly and original Levi's branding.
The Hawks come in a light wash denim and have been given a raggy frayed front. They are a super laid-back pair of shorts, with a longer hem allowing you to roll them up for a varied look.
Please note: although we try to match the image as closely as possible when picking the shorts, the pair you receive may differ slightly to what is pictured.
TAB SIZE VS REAL SIZE
Our denim corner is filled with vintage treasures that are 20+ years old. If you take into account the amount of wash and wear they've had during these years, it's no wonder that the shorts can change shape and size. Whether they've shrunk or stretched, the shorts now rarely match the size on the back of the tab, so we re-size them according to their 'actual' waist measurement size. We do this simply by laying them flat and measuring across the top waist band. Whereas this size may be different to what is printed on the back tab or inner label, rest assured it has been measured accurately to the size it is now and by following the instructions below, you'll get your perfect fitting pair.
HOW TO MEASURE
It's quite simple - our shorts are sized by their waistband. E.g. W26 = 26" waist. So to work out your size, grab a tape measure and measure around the smallest part of your waist (or where you want the shorts waistband to sit). Be sure that the tape is snug, but not too tight as you'll want the shorts to be comfortable. If you are between sizes E.G 26.5" then go a size up to W27.
