Narrowly missing Fade Friday status, these Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1947 501 Rigid’s, sent in by David Preston of Portland, Oregon, are the cream of the crop. After more than a year of wear with just a single initial soak, the contrast is very strong overall and there’s certainly no shortage of whiskers. The seat is near-white and the honeycombs are quite crisp, both of which point to his frequent biking and hiking.
