The 1966 501® Jeans represents a snapshot in time. This style bar tack instead of rivets, big E Red Tab only existed from 1966 to 1971, just a blink of the eye in a very long life of the original and definitive blue jean. When the back pocket rivets were covered in 1937, everyone thought that would solve the furniture-scratching problem. But those rivets were tougher than they looked, and after a few years of hard wear they just wore right through the denim, scratching things up again. By 1966 technology had caught up with history and it was possible to bar tack the pockets so that they were as sturdy as they had been in their work wear days.
