5-0-1. Three digits that defined a company and became the world's best selling piece of clothing. Since its debut in the late 1800s, the jean has been released in a countless number of washes and fits, but one of the most requested alterations has been a tapered leg. 

Today, Levi's has updated the 501 with an official tapered fit that they're calling the 501 CT (custom tapered) and they've teamed up with Mr Porter to create a line of special editions crafted from Cone Mills denim. Each style is limited to 100 pairs and it takes 72 hours to construct each and every one. 

$295, available at
