    Vintage Denim?

    I thought I remembered something like you had never seen copper backed rivets on this model, could have remembered wrong?

    5 months ago I stopped by a road side sale and this was nicely folded next to a few 1990's pairs...They sort of knew they were special, $100 price tag- they were asking $50 for the the 90's pairs. Doc-you said there was something about this pair you hadn't seen? 503-10 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-11 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-1 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-8 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-2 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-3 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-9 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-7 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-6 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-4 by bottleswest, on Flickr 503-5 by bottleswest, on Flickr

    I can measure them tonight, I would guess there a solid 34, maybe less- but I’ve chunked up in the past 2 weeks. @julian-wolf neg rep is spilling over from other threads, that’s interesting

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Been working way too much in the last 6 months, today was the first time back to the mines since my 6 month work storm, I managed to lose my footing on a small slope and fall off a 5 foot ledge- came down on my bad right shoulder and Farked it up all over again…aside from everything I just listed, at least I’m making $ again from work. Got paid my 150 pounds, thought about retirement, but decided against it in the end.

    00- have you ever pulled off a single rotation, or was this a thing after your big BMX days? When was the first time 2 flips were pulled off…Finally- will it be the back flipping robot that pulls off 4?

    These folks talked with me about the Chinese and manufacturing jeans in the 1800’s, looking forward to seeing this too

    I forgot to ask- does yours have the custom LSD & Co rivets too?

    Ah- yea I knew about this gift, the original run of that special fabric I believe? I wasn’t aware of the second pocket added- probably has the pocket stamp? not for sale everywhere

    Did you get the original- or the 5 pocket Leroys that came out a year later?

    Cone had a bunch of uneven yarn they didn’t know what to do with, so Roy sent a early 1890’s sample of Levis’s #2 fabric. He somehow got them to use the wonky yarn and made enough fabric to make 7 pairs of jeans…The tour is over and I have the jeans back, still waiting to take a picture wearing them before I send them home to San Francisco.

    My Japanese buyer wouldn’t touch anything that wasn’t a 505 or 501 just a year ago. Im learning now-550s-517’s 560’s are all a go now.

    Vintage Denim?

    So I’ve seen the front pockets now, on what looks to be a champion AB Elfelt back pocket…No dart stitch on the front pockets, this does appear to be a later version of the Champion pants- I’ve only seen duck or denim pocket bags on Champion and Levi pants made before the factory- this pant has denim pocket bags- so it would appear that they went back to the free floating back pocket, when they changed to the more common cinch strap- that’s seen on most dart stitch pants, including their own dart stitch pant (pioneer overalls) made by Elfelt. Cool pair, so much like the pants Hodis made, only these have a different cinch strap, plus a free floating pocket.
