The 502XX is a remarkable piece of denim history that emerged as the successor to the revered zip-fly 501ZXX, specifically tailored for the discerning taste of East Coast enthusiasts who favored the convenience of a zipper closure. This particular pair, still in its original rigid state, unveils a unique narrative. The denim has undergone a distinctive transformation – a journey that seems to involve a blanching process initiated by the original owner. This experimental approach, perhaps in an attempt to soften the fabric, has resulted in a light, almost acid-wash-like appearance, creating an individualized aesthetic that stands out. Said procedure has also bleached color from the Red Tab device and the redline selvedge, further contributing to the jean's one-of-a-kind character.
Despite the unconventional treatment, this ultra-rare jean remains in a remarkable state, appearing virtually unworn. The overall garment, aside from its captivating discolouration, stands in perfect condition – a testament to both its original quality and the care bestowed upon it by its custodian.
