    WAYWT 2020 (Denim Edition)

    Agree with Bartleby. Was the pullover bought worn/washed, or have you put that in yourself? Either way, looks great.

    yeah, maybe what I seen as the versions is not in chronological order, simply just version 1, version 2, version 4 and so on. confusing and every combination might be possbile. I just want to seen the main button on his original pair of Levi's jeans.

    I'm no expert but I just dont see any clear details that could nail a date down , the details you mentioned could really place them anywhere

    I might be wrong though. To you question, the combination of the details seen on the jeans make me think they are early version of ww2 Levi’s. I’m not take the main button as indicator here. I inferred from other details I saw that is possible to the branded button not the laurel main button. I agree that this period of time is most irregular period and makes the jeans interesting

    @Capsicum Fried Meat What makes you think they are the first version mate ? As far as I know there is no way of knowing for sure if they were produced in 42 or 45 because there was never consistency in production during these years . I've seen black thread used in the chainstitch on the waistband on one or 2 pairs of s501xx and maybe (??) This could be an indication that they were made as the restrictions first applied in 42 , as this detail was only seen on some pairs in the early 40's , barracks on the back pockets could maybe be used to indicate they were made late in 45 but I think I've only ever seen this in the 501xx book ( not sure if I've seen it again ) , Other than this there isn't much to indicate when a pair was made ( as far as I know ) . Branded buttons and rivets were used throughout the the wartime production so using this as an indicator doesn't really work , such a confusing time but its really interesting and my favourite time period in Levi's production

    Just little details seen on the original pair of wwii jeans which hajime had in hand and used as a sample. The fly buttons are plain donut button, although the main button is not visible from the pic. The back pocket stitching, which is stitched inward, is same with Nylon FN087/Real McCoy 003/Toy's Mccoy 910. The pocket fabric is plain ecru. The patch was damaged and completely fell off. Iron hidden rivets on the back pocket and no bartack. So the pair of jeans which hajime had is very first version of WWII jeans produced by Levi's. The main button should be branded button.

    Welcome back Gnomes, yes the WWII cut should be wider / more relaxed.

    Some S501XX examples seen in a Lightning magazine (I think some of these have been previously posted. And piggybacking off of @bartlebyyphonics idea of a WWII ear Lee chore coat, I'd love the 31-J with two bottom pockets...

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Indigo shibori dyeing class hosted by dyed for indigo today. Really fun and interesting. Beautiful setting as well on a island in the Gothenburg archipelago.

    Tcb staff hasn't done yet a price projection for this model but I guess it will be along the lines of other Tcb jeans. The most expensive pair of 5p jeans they make costs 23k jpy, about 215 USD mas o meno. Plus we have to factor in a little extra for the special details of this limited batch which we are still discussing.

    agree & I guess my last observation on the matter would be that naval cats (as per above and as purrr the excellent earlier suggestions about infamous ships cats) may have too much association with USN pants (better suited to the tcb seamans...)... looking forward to it @Nayuta!!!!!!!!!
