    Black bar-tacking stitch used at the top of the back pockets. Agree with Foxy above too!

    ok - but how can you see that the coin pocket is chain stitched? just a wild guess? the right side for chain and lock stitch are identical...

    Chainstitch on the coin pocket? V-stitch at the button can sometimes be found on 60s Levi's if I remember correctly.

    the V-stitch?

    Nope, and if I may say, that was a weak and pathetic offering.

    Nickel backs on the round-top rivets.

    And just to be a complete annoying, pedantic dick head, what tiny detail did the get really, really right??? This will be a bit difficult...
  11. @501XX4EVER Honestly, you guys never cease to amaze with your knowledge of Levis.

    Sounds good enough to sprinkle on your cereal... This is the thing I was talking about above...
  13. Maybe more like Kevlar but even stronger. It makes a good material for motorcycle pants. If you want to see how marketing works, then check out the Patagonia website where they describe it as made from trees, ie. eco-friendly. Heck, with a name like "Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE-Dyneema®)", it almost sounds organic.

    100% correct, and you win the mystery prize, which is the knowledge the the Universe is a 100% cold, unforgiving, uncaring, heartless void.

    It all sounds like the Cotton/Poly blend that Levi's did in the late 70's, especially on the 517. Dyneema

    Not a double-chainstich waistband?
  17. Agree on Dyneema; however, I personally prefer the hemp blend by Patagonia for durability. It is a good fabric but the hemp has difficulty holding dye.

    If I was going to nitpick about this pair as a 66 cut, and I mean extreme nitpicking here, can anybody spot the one glaring error in the 66 cut details of this Lot 1101???
  19. ideally, that should equate to "produced domestically" - unfortunately, that's not always the case. maybe the rules will allow for a certain percentage to be produced in Mexico with yarns coming from the US or the finishing taking place in the US and you can still call the fabric US made... furthermore, most of the info seems to originate from 2015 - maybe parts need updating? Dyneema is nothing bad per se - but most likely nothing that's been woven on a narrow draper loom with proper selvedge...

    Actually grabbed some one wash 105s yesterday from Canoe Club last week with a lot of enthusiasm and excitement because the things are just so neppy. Like for real. It was great and I felt great about my kop. But then I wore them and things changed. I'm not so into the fit anymore. I'm thinking 107s now. Anyway shameless plug the 105s are up for sale if anyone wants a pair of few hours old size 5 o/w for cheap tags in hand
  22. The old Wild Ass denim used to be unhemmed. Thats a great look for everything from flipflops to Wesco Loggers.

    ^ Anything else apart from that?
  24. Patagonia has also introduced Dyneema blend in their workwear denim. https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-steel-forge-denim-work-pants-regular/56120.html?dwvar_56120_color=DDNM&cgid=mens-pants-jeans-workwear#start=1

    They say they source all fabric domestically and from White Oak. They allude to different fits and also rigid and stretch denim choices, but just have the one model atm I guess. Wouldn't expect hidden rivets at that price point, but would be nice.
  26. those do have some interesting features and tweaks... most certainly no selvage denim (Dyneema fibres), which would explain the Cone source - non-US Cone, probably China or Mexico. they mention that the jeans are made in/near SF, but don't include the fabric in that statement. also, no hidden rivets for that special douple layered back pocket and a tapered cut.

    nice - custom hardware and custom tooling for said hardware is indispensable if you want to do it right (i.e. authentic looking) and important for brand building. it is also quite expensive. it often forces the brands to amortize costs through big volumes - meaning they will use the new hardware for quite some time while the denim, the patches, the cuts, the styling and even the manufacturer will change.
