    Vintage Denim?

    Bored so bumping my fav thread with some photos of a pair of 1922-1926 501XX (pics borrowed from lg) - the first model with added belt-loops. Only have photos of maybe 5 pairs of similar early 1920's 501's, including the pair in the 501xx book so they're not a common sight. Lovely set of details- first belt loops were smaller/shorter, made from shirt-weight denim. Bullseye buttons on the fly and older style branded buttons on the waistband, a combination dating back to 1915, and pre 1927 tooled rivets too. Another early detail are the corner-cut back pocket corners, just under the exposed back pocket rivets (difficult to see in detail here). Although the waistband got a chain stitch sometime around 1915/17 the leg hem had to wait until 1927 to get one , as evidenced by the unravelled hem on this pair. Anyway, carry on...

    Hopefully stay that way for a while as it's my best belt worn with my fav jeans and I've only just 'declared' my new purchase to the missus. I love the colour and look forward to its possible patina development over time. Thanks again buddy.

    Couldn't you use a pair of pliers or similar to 'crimp' it? Hopefully squeezing both sides gently until taught would solve the problem?
