Due to the World War II, material control was carried out to strengthen the production of munitions. Clothing and work clothes were also restricted, and all the features and details were simplified. The "S" in "S601XX" means Simplified.
The Freewheelers used an iron laurel main button instead of using the logo engraved button. The number of front buttons has been reduced to 4, and the pocket flap has been removed. Regarding the pocket flap, there were no restrictions on jackets, but this 506 was positioned as a denim blouse, a type of shirt jacket.
The warp thread was slightly thicker than before, and used a dark indigo dye that does not easily fade. As a result, the weight of the fabric has been increased slightly which became a dark-colored 14-ounce indigo denim.
In order to maintain the quality of the sewing, a thick thread was used to maintain the craftsmanship and aim for high quality and strong durability. All sewing threads are yellow cotton thread. The laurel button is an original part made for the Great War model.
