    Who would have thought, the rumors of you not being human would be true.

    Was this a week long project? I looked at the RoyXCone contest thread 2 months ago…Feels like it would take me a week alone to read just that thread.

    Couldn’t agree with you more, but I bet the level of shite content the US puts out- blows away your shite content…The US puts out the purest shite content known to man.

    Would have made the whole thing a little more interesting, how did they tie the interview with the show? I was left with a - this is going to be mediocre at best kind of feeling, after the interview.

    Received an email about a month ago, just haven’t got around to billing them for the 150 pounds, to do the interview during last years lockdown. After the interview-I wondered how the heck they were going to weave this into a sewing B? haven’t seen the show- suppose I should try and watch it…It was one of those interviews where they stop you, then ask you to say it like this.

    Another thing I’ve overlooked, but I have no doubt the old archivist knew about this- so is this the copyright being made in 1926, and are the claims that the oil ticket has been in continuous use since 1892- are these claims being made in 1926? If the claims are true and everyone thought the first ticket had F/O 20 years…This could be the main reason why it’s thought that XX started in 1873 But now throw in the 17 year ticket, this now puts its start date to 1875/76?

    From what I hear, 2 years ago a 20’s deadstock with tags showed up in Pakistan- it was in a bail and sold fo something like 30 something K, now that I think about it, probably more like 4-5 years ago. Never got a chance to see it.

    I bet there might be a for over 50 year without the copyright date, shouldn’t it be for over 50 years on my timeline- so 1926 should be when it changes to F/O 50 great depression comes along and Levi says F it and runs with the F/O 50 for 10 years? Who knows

    I suppose it’s one of those things, why anyone from that time period kept the ticket Vs just throwing it into the trash is a head scratcher…It sounds like an unusual amount of for over 50 years tickets- it might suggest that’s when the first flub in the timeline was?

    So my friend has seen both 40 and for over 45, but he hasn’t seen that many- he’s seen a bunch of over 50.

    We can’t rule out this possibility^^^ I took a look at the page before, I didn’t see a 40 or 45 ticket, and the deadstock 30’s pair with over 50 years is definitely off in the time line I lay out…I’ll ask a Japanese friend of mine that’s seen a little bit of everything, I’ll ask if he’s seen a 40 or 45 ticket. A F/O 17 year ticket surfaced a year ago- this fits my theory that the XX changed its pocket bag stamp in 1893 to say for over 17 years the standard…and now we have a ticket to go along with that- who knows, when we get another 60 tons of rock moved on our 6 year project- I hope to have more answers.

    Is there a F/O 40 and F/O 45 year ticket out there? The best evidence we found so far- for XX starting in 1876, is when we found a crispy/perfect guarantee ticket in a 1896 trash dump (with only 1896 newsprint) this ticket had F/O 20 years…Jump ahead to a 1914 article that showed a guarantee ticket with F/O 35 years (this still fits with the 1876 XX time line) then we have in LD book a guarantee ticket with F/O 35 year, but now without the linen thread and Amoskeag denim…We know now that in 1915- Levi changed over to Cone denim and no more linen thread…In my time line, 1916 should be the year they switch to F/O 40 years and if they are still on a accurate count, in 1922 they should go to for over 45 year…So when and where the years get wonky is not known to me.

    Richie’s jeans have selvedge, and if there from the mid 70’s I would say 501’s- but costume houses had old clothing...I’ll stick with 501’s
