    Thanks for that JMS, and with this l can now confirm that my post above (1915 back pocket arcuate comparison) is actually the pair they copied to make mine!

    The back pocket of my WH '1915 belt loop model' and a pocket off an original pair of c.1915-1921's.

    @Broark where's the fit pic of those Ooe wide leg bucklebacks you snagged? Or have l missed that??

    I'm not familiar with wartime era Lee jeans (jackets a bit more so) but as Flash has pointed out, that space between the waistband button and the top fly button does not look true vintage, and instead looks typical of early japanese repro jeans (Lee and Levis) imho. Also as another example, my 1936 Edwin Lee bucklebacks had this exaggerated spacing. Glad the perseverance paid off with the cinch strap

    EVERY DETAIL, TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL. They've got the spacings between the suspender buttons bang on

    Pinch the thick denim to make it slimmer by putting it in a vice @Broark and leave it over night.

    Vintage Denim?

    Late 50's/early 60's 191-LB by the look of that lining! Nice pick up @scooby

    Those middle pair from Marvins look to be the same, or similar, where the back centre belt loop is stitched under, like your WH '36 dsb repros. Most other 1936-42 501's have a regular stitched belt loop like the other 2 examples you posted from Marvins. Does that make sense? Anyway my main reason of interest is that weird back belt loop. If it's a custom thing, then fine, as there's plenty of evidence to suggest that Levis did that for customers with jackets. But if it isn't a custom thing, then for a very (very) small period of 501XX production, in and around say 1936/7, hidden rivet Levis may have had this feature. So hold that thought. Going back to the vintage denim thread, l posted a ds pair of earlier 501XX with exposed back pocket rivets which also had this belt loop feature. This may mean that this brief period of production was just before the 1936/1937 type model was introduced. So the ds pair would have been made after the NRA tag was stopped being used around late 1935. I'm going to go back over to the vintage denim thread to take another look at those guarantee tickets

    Vintage Denim?

    Deadstock war era are very rare though, and in a 34 leg too.

    @Broark Man, you are the denim king! So many nice pick ups recently, and these are by far the best imo. Interestingly, l have some pics (now unfortunately uploaded to my ancient laptop) of an original pair like this, with the centre-back belt loop stitched under like your 36 dsb's. Think Flash found them on the Berberjin blog or similar. I wonder if they are a factory or custom thing as despite seeing images of quite a number of late 30's 501's (and there are more pairs out there than l previously imagined), l've only seen one pair like this (?) I suppose we'll only ever know if/when Warehouse have another one of their vintage sell offs and hopefully these might get included.
