    funny, i got a similar pair from an eBay purchase today, same production run. i can tell that these now run true to size, as most recent rigid LVC jeans do. this is the 1st pair in years. i had worn several pairs over the years and can confirm that the kaihara denim achieved one the best fading results. btw. my rolling stones avatar shows joe dallesandro wearing original 505s enjoy your new pair.

    hi folks, has anyone succsessfully stretched a pair of Red Wing engineer 2966 klondike widewise at the instep, right where the bootleg part and the foot part of the leather are connected, just where the buckelbelt sits? My boots fit perfectly lengthwise and hurt after few minutes for the are too snug at this part. many thanks in advance for any comment

    the cut maybe not authentic, but the denim beeing used is (was ) great, btw. it´s the same denim beeing used for the 55 and type2. these photo i found recently at ebay and show how great something that i would call a double patterns can look, which is to achive by avoiding washing you jeans as long as possible and then to wash outside out along with with some other laundry to squeze the pair while washing and to cause the marbel effect.

    Vintage Denim?

    great find flash! i am with you here. also i will "hopefully" never fit into my recent pair. yours seem to be from the same period, and interesting enough also don´t show of tear off tag. what does the back of waist button read, and does your pair feature laundry information inside?

    finally found a pair of old stock british made dr. martens that come with imo much better and longer lasting commando sole in size 9.5 somehow it seems to be a rare size since most of the time you got either 9 or 10, i was suffering from to big size 10 martens back in 90s

    denimbro crosspost: got these from ebay, sometimes people don´t know what treasure they possess what i learned is that the waist button back doesn´t have to show off a number, and not all 501s from 73-78 came with the tear of tag (the 1st 2 photos show colour best):
