MEN’S BUTTON FLY JEANS
The jean that started it all, the Levi's® 501® was the first jean with a button fly. The button-up closure was created back in the 1800s, and was the only way to fasten a pair of jeans until the early 1900s – when the zipper started being implemented into fashion.
Men's button-up jeans may be a bit bulky, but are considered to be more durable than jeans with a zipper fly. The simple construction allows the closure to not have mechanical flaws, and will not stretch out over time. They do require a certain level of motor skills, being that they aren't the easiest to fasten. The subtle detail looks excellent the longer you wear them. After some time, they'll get an appealing, natural patina on the denim in front of the buttons, adding a charming character to the jeans. With a button fly, you'll never need to worry about the fly breaking or have to go to a zipper repair store. If you're a denim purist, you may want to stick with the original fly closure, not only for the durability aspect but also for its heritage and place in fashion history.
Our original men’s button-fly jean is the Levi's® 501® Original fit jean which sits right at the waist and is straight through the seat and thigh, allowing an excellent comfortable fit and feel and features a straight leg opening. This classic pant is a staple, and all guys should have at least one variation of it in the dresser. The Levi's® 501® comes in a few different styles of fit. If you are looking for a button-fly jean that's a closer fit, try on the Levi's® 501® Skinny jeans that have a slimmed down leg and are narrow around the ankle. If you want something that's a mix between skinny and straight check out the Levi's® 501® Tapered Fit which is roomier in the seat and thigh, then tapers down the leg to the ankle.
